Culebra's Beaches

Flamenco Beach

Flamenco Beach is famous for its wide, white-sand beach, and beautiful Caribbean-blue water. Flamenco Beach is ranked # 2 in the top 10 most exotic beaches in the world. Crystal clear water in a huge, horseshoe-shaped bay with tranquil waters that has everything you could ever dream of. A complete and utter no-brainer to visit. If you want to snorkel, head towards the eastern part of the beach (known as "El Muellecito" by the locals). You'll also have awesome photo oppotunities with war tanks littered around the beach from the days when the US military used to roam.

Tamarindo Beach

Tamarindo Beach is part of the Luis Peña Channel Natural Reserve. It's a nice spot because you can drive right up to it. This beach has amazing sea life meaning that it's a great spot for snorkelling. Lots of tourist love snorkelling at this beach because they can enjoy spotting sea turtles and sting rays in the area. There is a small reef close to the far left area where the University of Puerto Rico is "planting" coral to help refurbish the reef.

Zoni Beach

Zoni Beach is located on the northeastern shore of Culebra. Zoní Beach is as beautiful as Flamenco Beach in its white sands and clear waters. As opposed to Flamenco, it’s less populated, therefore peaceful. On the downside, it has no amenities, so you should pack some snacks and beverages with you if you’re planning to spend a whole day there.

Melones Beach

Melones Beach is part of the Luis Peña Channel Natural Reserve as well. It’s really easy to access; you just drive right up to it and park just steps from the beach. The underwater rock formations and reefs here are absolutely amazing. Everything is covered with many seafans and soft corals, along with all types of hard corals. You'll enjoy schools of fish swim by, sea turtles and stingrays.

Culebrita Cay

Culebrita is a small cay to the NE off Culebra. To access you need to take a water taxi. Once you're there you can hike up to the lighthouse where you can take breathtaking pictures or spend the day at Tortuga beach with its crystal clear waters and you'll occasionally see turtles swim by.

Punta Soldado Beach

Punta Soldado has a southern view facing Vieques, from there you can also see the main Island of Puerto Rico. It is a small bay with a beach of coral and small stones, surrounded by brush and mangroves.
