Awesome beach. Loved the waves and the nature around it could not be more beautiful. Also, got great empanadillas from one of the vendors at the beach. GO visit this.

This beach is overrated in my opinion. I think the only reason it was rated No. 2 on TripAdvisor is because its accessibility (cheaper and easier to get there since it is the territory of USA). I went there in the middle of Dec 2014, the water is too rough for snorkeling, but the waves are not big enough for... More

A very commercial place. Not good for snorkeling and parts are not fun for swimming. It is beautiful and clear water. The pelicans hang out and dive bomb near the old tank in the water. The swimming wasn't all that great. Lost my sunglasses when a strong unexpected wave crashed over me. Hey it is the beach. But the wave... More

This is a definite must do in Puerto Rico. We read horrible reviews about trying to get there but we really had no trouble at all. Definitely go during the week. You have to be patient but it was no problem. We got to the ticket booth around 7:45, had our tickets by 8 and had to then stand in... More

This beach was rated one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, there is a reason for this, it's stunning! If you snorkel, you may come across sea turtles, sting rays and beautiful fish. The best way to get to Culebra, Flamingo Beach is either taking the furry from Fajardo, taking a short flight or taking a snorkel excursion,... More

Honestly GORGEOUS beach however we just happened to visit when a bunch of kelp/vegetation was on the beach so there were a ton of sand fleas. We didn't stay long sadly.

Well maybe not but it is lovely. The water is so clear you can see the color of your toenails. Lots of places to eat and beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. to rent.

I want to start by saying that the weather and time of year will affect your visit. We traveled there Dec. 5, during the wet season. The waves were very large and the current strong. There is also an explosion of seaweed that will deter from the beauty of it all. These are all seasonal issues. We travelled as a... More
