Go early 5-6am. Fine sand and clear waters. The current is quite strong when we went there so I recommend not to go deeper (for non-swimmers.

Secluded but spacious, this one is worth a visit if you'd like a change from the bath-like waters of White Beach.

Very large and long beach, when we were there in was very windy and the sea was rough, so we did not swim in there. But the water color is amazing. Probably during the wet season it is more enjoyable. The sand is not that white and soft as in white beach. You will find also a lot of bamboo... More

Sailboat is the nice way of getting there. Water seems to be cleaner and warmer. Highly recommend, for a day. Bring your own towels and miscellaneous, vendors do charge more money for drinks, but you get the use of there chairs. Can get very busy, we found best time is in morning.

This is a beautiful beach with amazing water. It's not very crowded and you can get there by boat or trike. The food on at the huts on the beach was excellent. If you want a break from the crowded White Beach this is the spot.

I loved the Puka beach the most in Boracay. It's not as crowded as White beach, has not as many activities and dining options, but if you want just to relax on the beach it's the perfect place to do it.

Nice water, relaxing, quiet no building on beach so it is untouched. You can spend nice relaxing time there in a quieter environment.
