|Puka Beach, Boracay|
It is easy to understand why Boracay is named 2012 world's best island getaway by an international travel magazine. It is accessible, the beaches are simply gorgeous and most of all, by foreign standards, the accommodations are very affordable.

And although White Beach is considered Boracay's premier beach, Puka Beach on the islands's northernmost part can stand on its own in terms of its exotic beauty and tranquility.
|I Heart Boracay!!!|
Puka Beach is the second longest beach in Boracay and it covers half of the island's northern tip. The sand here is more silica and a little more grainy. The mild, gentle waves lapping the beach provide a pleasant background noise common to islands fringed with coral reefs.

|Pearly Shells... Hanging|
The beach itself is 800 meters long and named after Puka Shells. These are small shells and tiny, white coral pieces prized for making bracelets and necklaces. Many experts regard these shells as one of the world's finest.

Puka Beach is one of my favorite spots in the island and one of the best spots if you wanna get away from the maddening crowd of White Beach.
