Popular sandy beach with food vendors and regular public affordable shuttlebus service. Beautiful. Another beach, has a name I can't recall, is accessible from the parking lot. Take the 1/2 hour walk along a footpath to an even more spectacular and less populated beach. Excellent snorkeling and shelling.

Nothing more really needs be said. Astoundingly beautiful. And even when it's crowded, it doesn't come close to being a nuisance. Perfect. You'd be a fool not to go if you're on Culebra.

Like swimming in a pool. The staff at the beach were very nice and make a really good job keeping the whole area clean. Remember no glass bottles are permitted. Great for snorkeling!

I have been going to Culebras camping since I was sixteen ( born and raised in P.R.) love the feel of "small town", with no traffic lights. Last time we went to Flamenco Beach was two years ago. Like someone mention before; don't let the ferry experiences opaque your experience to visit one of the most beautiful beaches in Puerto... More

This is by far one of the most beautiful beaches I've been to, but getting there is not easy!! It took us three different attempts to go there (ferry, catamaran tour, plane). Trying to get on the ferry is almost impossible and tickets sell out quick. People told us to arrive to the ticket station very early to TRY to... More

Spent the most relaxing time at this amazingly beautiful beach. White sands, warm clear water, kiosks with plenty of tropical foods and drinks. Rented chairs and umbrellas ( a must) very reasonable. While on Culebras, don't miss eating at Coconuts Bar & Grill, amazing food!!!! Everyone on the island, super friendly and helpful. Great time!

Out of all the beaches we visited I was least impressed by Flemenco. It was busy, there was trash on the beach. I just didn't enjoy it as much as the other beaches. It is the only beach where there are food stands. Plus it was neat to see the two tanks from WWII that are on the beach.

Loved EVERYTHING about this beach! Much quieter on the weekdays than on weekends. Food stands right off the sand that were great!

This is a beach that you MUST visit in your lifetime. I slept on white and clean sands of this beach and it was a dream. Peace, a nice warm breeze, white sands and cristal clear water..... What more could you ask for?
