Boracay’s Crystal Cove Island Resort and Magic Island may be closed in the meantime, but Puka Beach and the island’s surrounding snorkeling spots are still a win-win.
Puka Beach, which came from the name of the “Puka” shells scattered on the powdery sand of the beach, boasts of its raw beauty, turquoise waters, and serenity.
It differs from Boracay’s main beach in that Puka Beach does not have the booming restaurants, clubs, and shopping areas you would certainly see on the White Beach.
The beach may not have the same powdery white sand that the White Beach has, but it makes up for it with its quiet beauty.
Instead, what the beach offers is a laid-back afternoon with a fresh coconut drink on hand.
Cottages that peppered the beach before the rehabilitation are now replaced with handwoven mats under the trees and beside boulders of rocks, perfect for lazing around in the afternoon, waiting for the sun to set.
Shells are made into home accessories by the people of Boracay.
To take pieces of Puka Beach with you, you may purchase several souvenirs on the beach from bags, bracelets made with Puka shells (Php 100/ 3 pieces), and more!
