Puka Beach, Boracay

Just when I thought that I already shared all my adventures at Boracay Island, I found several photos worth sharing, so here we go.

Island hopping activity at Boracay will not only fascinate you with the island destination itself, but as well with the view of nature as you sail along the beach. Here's a view of the Crocodile Island from afar. See it's resemblance to a crocodile? For more info, here's what Scuba Dive Philippines have to say about Crocodile Island:



Crocodile Island

Crocodile Island is only a stones throw away from Boracay Island itself and can be reached within fifteen minutes from White Beach. It a site which is available to divers of all levels of experience as the top of the wall, which is swarmed with marine life, is only at 5 meters. Usually, the dive is started by going along the wall to a maximum depth of 18 - 20 meters, then returning to the boat in the shallow water on top of the wall. A huge variety of life can be found at Crocodile Island including schools of reef fish, Nudibranch, Lion Fish, Scorpion Fish, Moray Eels, Cuttle Fish, Sea snakes, Gorgonian Fan Corals and much more.


Of course I won't let the chance to pass by to have taken a photo while I seem to be in the driver's seat in this sailboat.



Then we finally arrived at Puka Beach. Island Boracay Philippines describes Puka Beach as:



Puka Beach, Boracay



A quiet stretch of white sand along the northern tip of the island, Puka Beach is an image of what most people expect on a tropical island: white sand, azure water, and relatively empty. This is where locals gather the small puka shells for some of the jewelry that is sold on the island so expect the sand to be more coarse than on White Beach. The water tends to be a little rougher on this side of the island but it is much quieter. Similarly, there are fewer services -- at last count there was one restaurant but you likely won't have a problem getting a cold drink or an ice cream as there are a few vendors that patrol the beach. The main road in Boracay terminates at Puka Beach therefore you'll be able to hire a tricycle to get there in less than 10-15 minutes from central White Beach. Make sure you arrange a pickup if it is a quiet day and no tricycles are hanging around the beach. Most people experience Puka as one of their sailboat or banca stops during a day trip. This is a good spot for a picnic, but be sure to bring your trash home with you.


We only have a day to hop island after island; hence, we can't stay that long. We head on our way to another island. And as we sail along, I captured a photo of Romblon.

And before I forgot, here's the picture of the "buko" vendor together with his sailboat as I mentioned in one of my Boracay posts
