We really enjoyed this beach. We hired a sunned for free which included use of SUP and kayak but they hope you will buy drink. There was no pressure though. There was the odd motor boat coming and going but much quieter than white beach

Nice, quiet and clean beach in northern part of island. Have to take a tricycle to get there. Not because of distance, but the traffic and narrow roads. The deep comes here very fast, so not perhaps for swimming with little kids.

Upon reaching Puka Beach, I was instantly transported to a time when the Philippines was just an inhabited paradise, one can easily appreciate nature and the beauty of the sea by walking on it's white shores and bathing in it's turquoise waters. Paradise found.

The beach is exactly on the opposite side from the Jetty port, you have to travel the entire length of the island, about 7 o 8 km. Surely not by walk!
