We only had a short visit to this beach and would have liked to stay longer. It was a Saturday and the beach was filled with local families enjoying picnic and barbecue lunches which made for a festive atmosphere.

This beach was awesome to visit. The area is kept clean and the water is a pristine bluish/green. There are lounge chairs for rent for $5.00 which isn't too bad, especially if you plan on spending a few hours enjoying the sun and ocean. The water is unique in that it almost feels like you're in a pool since it's... More

Took the catamaran trip of one hour to snorkel at this beach area on Culebra Is. Trip was bumpy and rough over, but nice on the way back. Snorkeling was good, but not great. Comparing it to Grand Cayman it was not as good, but still fun. Water and beach were great.

I was surprised by the difference between the reviews here on TripAdvisor and our experience - that is rarely the case but we were a little disappointed in this one. The pros - the amenities. Lounge chair rentals, umbrellas, food stands, shower/locker rentals, bathrooms, cheap parking. This made it a good choice for us since we were here with a... More

all of these beaches are connected and you can go from playa fortuna and the little stretch next to it behind the kiosks that the locals use and they will be absolutely filled with trash(or not) or go a little further up where they have lifeguards and people cleaning up and concession stands and these unbelievably beautiful beaches right next...

Bring towels and munchies. We plunked towels down on the sand and watched the surf. The beach was populated by tourists and locals. The dip was refreshing!

This public beach has a lot to offer. Parking fee is minimal, as is the fee for all day access to the shower houses. The area is accessible and easy to navigate. Eat at the main entrance or walk further down the beach for a variety of local food stalls. Very clean and well maintained.

This beach has two different "sides". There is a calm beautifully sandy part that is great for swimming and sitting in the sun. A little bit farther down the water is super wavy great for surfing. Turtles also nest on the beach so it's a great place to try and spot some babies!!

This is really a beautiful and accessible beach. I have to say this was plan B, I couldn't get on the ferry to Culebra. I arrived at open and choose a nice bench area with no expectations or supplies. The water was claim and crystal clear, the whole beach was like something out of a movie. A vendor arrived with...

A beach that offers a little for everyone- a protected area for families. to the south- big waves for those wanting to learn to surf- and a wildlife refuge area for Leatherback Turtles that start to come to the shore to nest (usually in the dark at high tide) starting April through the summer. A local marine biologist told us... More
