The beach itself is lovely, i am sure the snorkeling is as advertised. But.. Do you really want to go to a small island's beach and have folks hawking chairs and umbrellas, walk the gauntlet between kiosks selling everything from sunglasses to food and wind your way among the crowd to find a spot to sit that is not in...

Low traffic due to the ferries getting over to the island. Big waves to body surf. Clear, warm water and soft sand made this beach like the ones you see on television. 4.50 to take the ferry but the beach was free. i could have stayed there until i died.

It is a gorgeous quiet beach with quiet waters and white sand. I live in Mexico and we have great beaches, but I must admit this is one of the most beautiful I have seen.

My family loved this beach. It was beautiful and clean. Great snorkeling with very little swim out to the reef. It stayed shallow for a ways so no need for worry about depth. We saw sea turtles, puffer fish, and many other colorful fish here. The sand was nice in this area and the beach was wide.

It's rated #3 beach in the world. I can't imagine anywhere more beautiful. The beach is pristine and the water is gorgeous. I wish I could live there. I loved every second.

I'm not really sure what the wow factor is here. It is a nice beach, but if you think it's the best beach, then apparently you have not visited other beaches in the Caribbean. I was expecting it to be way better than it was from the reviews I read. I took a few pics and then headed to another... More

We love to walk Flamenco Beach. Food kiosks offer the basics - although we've never eaten there. You can't miss out of this beautiful beach if you go to Culebra!

Just go to it, best beach I ever been in and walk bare footed on the shore, is beautiful. Also you have to do a little walk in it end to end you will be amazed.

Crystal clear water, white sand. Visit hut #6 for food and refreshments. Walked to the tank to take pictures, spent a good hour in the waters just enjoying the view snd company.

I have a few questions about your review on Flamenco Beach. Besides this visit / review, how many times have you been to Flamenco Beach? While visiting Culebra did you cover all of Flamenco Beach or just a small portion like where most Tourist enter? You say better beaches or snorkeling is available in the USVI correct? So you've snorkeled USVI during the same time / week of year you attempted on Flamenco correct? Also you state that the oceans waves are too strong for snorkeling but not strong enough for surfing? And all this on Flamenco beach correct? For me to read this I can honestly say it's hard to believe especially after my 10th visit this year. Like when you pick up a bad apple, or a hot Cola out of a fridge or even when you ask for a slice of pizza and instead of it being hot you get it luke warm?

Yes it's cheap to get there, yes the beach is amazingly beautiful, yes you have white powdery sand, yes you have WARM BEACH OCEAN WATER, yes you have amazing snorkeling and if you do your homework you can almost have all this to yourself if you go during the slow season, November through May.

I've been to beaches in Maui, Grand Cayman, Turks and Caicos, Bahamans, USVI, Aruba, Mexico, Belize and Puerto Rico. Hands down, Vieques and Culebra and even on the main island like Playa Sucia, they all give the top 5 beaches in the world a run for their money. You unfortunately picked the wrong day / week to visit.

In my Dos equis voice, I urge you to attempt this voyage one more time, stay thirsty my friend.
