“Good alternative to White Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2011

Puka beach sand may not be powerdery like White Beach but it is still a nice beach to visit.

The waves are definitely stronger here so does the wind.

There are souvenir shops at the entrance of the beach. There are also very few visitor to this beach so it will be a good break away from the white beach which is more crowded and noisier.

It will be good that you can take a banca here but do leave early as from the white beach to Puka may take a bit of time.

“The best beach i've seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

Puka beach is the best nice place i've seen. Just see it (like from Bounty advertising =))
An advice - go there before lunch, as there nobody. After lunch there are a lot of boats, arriving with tourists to see it.
