We took the ferry to Flamenco Beach. The beach is beautiful and very crowded. Go to the very far end to stay away from crowd. I've seen and been to better beaches in the Caribbean but this is still a very nice beach to spend the day at. This beach has no chairs for rent, so you need to bring... More

Flamenco is beautiful, period. I have visited Culebra twice in two years and Playa Flamenco lives up to everything it's advertised to be. Beautiful ridiculously clear water with sweeping curves which creates a horseshoe shape. Flamenco is the most accessible beach on the island with taxis and shuttles going there and back from the ferry port during the day. It... More

You have to plan when you visit Culebra. The Ferry ride is about an hour long and it only makes the trip a few times per day ...Get there early! Once you arrive in Culebra you will need transportation to the beach, there is jeep rental and also public transportation. The jeep will run you about $60 day. Public transport... More

This was the most beautiful beach we ever visited. Its peaceful and serene with white sands and clear water. We combined this visit with a snorkelling trip from Kayaking Puerto Rico. The visit to this beach can take your whole day since it is on a island so plan accordingly. A ferry runs in the morning which takes you to... More

The crystal clear, calm, waveless beach with white powdery sand was absolutely a beautiful sight. Definitely one of the most stunning beach in the world.

We spent a whole day at Flamenco Beach and we were speechless. Arrived by air at Culebra Island at 07:00 AM and there were only five or six people enjoying a safe, clean and quiet water. Highly recommended beach with a white sand, beautiful palms and view. Must get there early because it's overcrowed at noon. Don't miss it if... More

By far the most clear water I have ever seen. Looks like diamonds sparkling. A must do day trip if you can by ferry from Fajardo.

All the reviews are accurate, this beach is beautiful, calm -- we did not experience a large crowd, maybe since we took a catamaran cruise to the area.
