Once we hit the island of Culebra we snared a ride and headed to this amazing spot. Clear water as far as the human eye can see. This year they had a bit of seaweed but it was nothing. The waves were INSANE and swift but so worth it. The best workout for your core is wave jumping people. But... More

The beach was beautiful and the water clear and the perfect caribbean blue. The waves were stronger than at the hotel though but fun. But watch out for the swarm of mosquitos near the picnic benches! They will follow you to the beach just steps away.

Public beach, cheap boat ride $3.00. Tips : Prepare to wake up early. Maybe 4:00 am to buy a ticket if you go in holidays or weekend. Go Monday to Thursday ;)

Pro: this place is beautiful. the water in see is warm and clean. sand is soft. Con: too many small insects. They will bite everywhere that is exposed, and it hurts and then becomes very itchy. Be prepared.

I'm relatively new to tripadvisor and I came across the beach as one of the best traveler's beaches on the homepage. I will have to say I absolutely agree and I am so happy it was in the top 5. I went to Flamenco Beach abotu 4 years ago (despite what Tripdavisor says) and I never wanted to leave. Warm... More

Flamenco Beach is true paradise. Crystal clear waters, soft white sand, beautiful green hills in the background, no mega resorts or masses of tourists. You can snorkel right off the beach. Lots of great food options and $10 daily umbrella rentals. I never wanted to leave!

Liked the easy beach access- it was clean and not too crowded. White sand. showers for rinsing off salt water. Lots of food kiosks.

Flamenco beach can be a hassle to get to; you either have to get to Fajardo and take a ferry or fly on a tiny seaplane that seats like 5 people. The hassle is more than worth it though when you get to the beach and find pure untouched beauty. Flamenco beach offers everything you could ever want in a... More

This is my favorite beach from Puerto Rico, I grew up here and this beach is by far the best in the island. Crytal blue water, not as crouded as the rest of the beaches in Puerto Rico. My only recommendation is that you should try and reserve tickets in advance to get on the ferry to Culebras. There are... More
