The sand is not as fine as white beach but u will see a lot of small shells instead of sand . Be careful though because the shoreline sometimes is too deep and currents can... More

Take the boat over to the beach. It's a little less crowded then whit beach. Still lots of boats. A lot of little grass shacks to get food.

The beach was okay, it has crystal clear water but sand was not that fine. You can go here via boat or by a tricycle.

We decided to go Puka beach for lunch instead of the white sand beach due to great reviews. We wish we just stayed at the beautiful white sand beach. Once you get there everything is triple the normal prices. The drinks are about 350 and all the food was about the the same also . All the vendor charges the... More

A stunning setting, only beach, with a back drop of tropical jungle covered hills and rocks, giving a feeling you are isolated away from civilization. Really enjoyed the perfect clear water with well over 10 meters visibility. Unbelievable sunset!!

Just an 'ok' place to be go as the waves are too strong for swimming. Rough, yellowish sand since it was developed from crashed seashells over the course of time. Nothing special about the place but it's a good spot for walking/jogging/eating/buying souvenirs. I still prefer station2 for the powdery white soft sand but it's just me. Btw, travel advisor...
