With less stronger winds, the White Beach is starting to get crowded again with tourists.

The sand in Puka Beach is made of shells so it is not as fine as those in White Beach. Tourists however can enjoy the serenity that the place can offer because only small refreshment bars are established in the area. Most bars have their own bamboo beach beds that tourists can rent. Chartered ride to Puka Beach is worth PhP150.
