Puka Beach: The Hidden Gem of Boracay


Boracay may be one of the top tourist destination the Philippines, however...The Puka Beach in Brgy. Yapak is one of the most unspoilt areas in Boracay. Relatively untouched by modern civilization, this 800m beach remains a favorite spot for travelers and tourist who want to escape the white beach crowd and seek pure relaxation and tranquility. There are no commercial establishments there except for the small stores owned by locals, selling Puka necklaces, anklets and souvenir items at a fair price. By the way, It is named Puka Beach because of the Puka shells that are found there.
