Puka Shell Beach was quite windy and it was advised not to swim in the waters (impossible anyway because so many boats from the tours were docked on it). It’s the less popular beach for a reason as the sand is way more coarse and...More

Absolutely nothing to see or do here. Not worth of coming at all. No toilets, restaurants, sunchairs, activities, not anything.

Our Day trip on a boat took us here. The beach is lovely with beautiful sand and water. the locals had set up stalls to sell souveniers and there was a place to purchase drinks and icecreams.

Nice and relaxing area. A study on how shells become pulverised and become sand on the beach. Fresh buck (coconut) to drink.

One of the best beaches on the island. Quiet and out of the way. I hope it doesn't turn into white beach. Keep this beach the way it is.
