The Philippines are beautiful. We spent a lovely day at Yapak Beach. The beach was lovely and it was a perfect. There were many locals selling crayfish on large straw platters. The beer was very cheap. We enjoyed the beach and the people watching. We...More

Nice, but crowded with a bit too much tourist stuff for me. If you don't mind crowds and enjoy waves, this is a good spot to go to.

Rented a boat and took a tour around Boracay. Well worth visiting if you're trying to get away from the green algae. Also worth noting is that you get to see all the island from the ocean. Makes it worth it.

Excellent beach but there is no clean water in the toilets and restaurants! Do not eat anything at that island, quite risky! if you are staying around Station 1 in Boracay then you will not need to swim at Puka Beach, Boracay is much better..
