From stunning 360' views from the lighthouse, to a beach for every taste (coral, rough rolling surf, calm snorkeling cove), Culebrita is like no place on earth. While snorkeling we saw sting rays, conch, sea turtles, healthy reefs and multi-colored fish, and then we marveled at the Baths. It's a perfect day of hiking, swimming, snorkeling,and reveling in nature. Unparalleled!

Go visit this island... particularly the Turtle Bay. Absolutely breathtaking. I believe the most beautiful beach I have ever been to. Crystal blue warm waters! Visit the Baths but be sure to wear appropriate hiking type shoes...

The beaches, the snorkeling, the food and most of the people make this place a sweet vacation getaway. The challenge is finding the right place to stay.

This was the highlight of our Puerto Rico trip for me & my wife. We came with a small group from Culebra & spent half a day. Tortuga beach is the best beach we have visited - unspoiled, clear water, void of people, safe, clean, with see through water surrounded by tropical paradise. A nice walk to the abandoned lighthouse.... More

Tortuga beach is one of the most pristine beaches in the Caribbean!! The island is small and requires access by boat from surrounding islands, but well worth the visit. The water is amazing!!!

Make sure to go with Culebra Island adventures. Amazing tour. Lots and fun and so many turtles. 1st they get your Ferry ticket , all you have to do is show up in Fajardo and pick up your ticket. you will need water, snacks for your Ferry trip. The Ferry can be a little ruff with the water is ruff.... More

Tortuga Beach was unlike I had ever seen before. Hardly anyone there, warm and calm waters, beautiful sand. We snorkeled on the other side of the island where Capt. Sebastian dropped us off with gear. It was like swimming in an aquarium. The hike to the lighthouse was fun with great views. Enjoyed the tide pools too.

Like a small Flamenco beach. Love it. Worthwhile to pay for the boat ride and spend a few hours there.

Our hostel - Culebra International - was super close to the "downtown" and ferry, super cheap as well as just a cab/golf cart ride away from Flamenco Beach. Downtown was cute at night - we ate at Yaco Taco but saw that the Dinghy and Mamacitas were both lovely at night with great music and cocktails. The Pan Deli was... More

Yeah, it takes a while to get there (1 1/2 hours) but the ferry ride was practically free ($ 4.50 for adults) and provided a smooth ride. I highly recommend renting a golf cart or jeep and survey the small island. Hilly and interesting with several beaches and vistas. Don't come here expecting party central. Pretty quiet. Bring a book... More
