Yapak Beach is the second largest beach on Boracay Island. Also known as Puka Beach, Yapak Beach has lots of Puka shells which are quite abundant in the area. It’s located on the northern part of Boracay Island and offers a great, peaceful venue to escape the crowd and activity of the Long Beach. Covering a total land area of 800 meters, Yapak Beach comprises half of the island’s northern tip. Compared to other beaches in Boracay, the waters here are rougher and deeper. The sand at Yapak Beach is not as powdery white as those found on White Beach.
Yapak Beach can be accessed by land through the main road going to Puka Grande; and a private road exclusive to Ecovillage Resort and Convention Center and 2 other partner resorts. The private beachfront is accessible from Ecovillage resort through a 10-minute shuttle trip. This is also ideal for ATV and Bugcar tour rides.
Visitors to Yapak Beach will love the many restaurants and eateries which flourish there. Many of the famous food places in this part of the island even have fine dining with the use of local Nipa (thatched roof) huts for guests to enjoy their food in a truly tropical setting. There may even be ambulant vendors offering their puka-shell jewelries and ornaments for guests to buy and take home as keepsakes and reminders of their tropical vacation on the island.
Another attraction of Yapak Beach is the amazing and unobstructed view of the Boracay sunset. The beach provides a more peaceful and well deserved experience of the coming of dusk on the island.
