Puka Shell Beach is Puka beach

Puka Shell Beach is a white sand beach in Boracay

Puka Shell Beach The legend of Boracay Island begins with a visit by wealthy tourists to Puka Shell Beach also known as Puka Beach. The number and beauty of the shells inspired them to explore the rest of Boracay. After the holidays, they recommended Boracay as the perfect place to go on vacation. And the rest, if this story is true, is history.

And that is not the only legend about the puka shells. People believe that wearing puka shell jewelry provides protection during long journeys.

Puka Shell Beach's original name was Yapak Beach, named after its barangay. Its name changed because of the sheer number of puka shells in its white sand. Puka, in Hawaiian, means "hole". This refers to the natural hole in the sea snail's cone-shaped seashell.

How to Relax at Puka Beach

Boracay Island's White Beach gets most of the attention, benefiting Puka Shell Beach. This allows the water at Puka Beach to stay bluer, clearer, and cleaner.

Puka Shell Beach is Boracay's 2nd-longest beach at 800 meters (2600 feet) wide. The water is deeper than at White Beach, and the water currents are stronger. This makes Puka Beach more challenging for experienced swimmers. The beach is free-to-access for all.

Because the area is less developed, Puka Shell Beach is quieter than White Beach. Compared to the rest of Boracay, Puka Beach is like a desert island.
