I was very excited to travel to Flamenco after all of the great reviews but was slightly let down at the lack of things to do. If you plan accordingly you can have a great time.. just know that there are minimal restaurants if ANY and that things are a little drive away so make reservations to get a golf cart so you avoid trying to get taxis.

Most beautiful beach in the world! Absolutely gorgeous water .. it doesn't even look real. The color is so beautiful. The beach is breathtaking. The way the palm trees line the beach and the shore is just stunning. Number one beach is Culebra and Puerto Rico!

Here are a few things I learned that might be helpful to know when planning your trip to Flamenco Beach, which is gorgeous and clean (side note there will be seaweed on the beach but not in the water). Currently there are 2 ferry trips per day. If you purchase a ferry ticket with chairs and umbrella for when you get to the beach, just be mindful that although the beach is open, the guys at the hut with the chairs and such are likely to be close by the time the second ferry arrives. When you arrive to Culebra, you have to figure out transportation from the dock to the other side of the island where the beach is, a taxi is going to cost you around $20, it is not in walking or hiking distance. Once done with your visit to the stunning crystal clear waters, you will need to again get transportation back to the docks where you have to wait for said ferry to return hours later. The shops and food places are likely to be closed and you will have to be patient. My recommendation would be to go on the earlier ferry ride so you can catch the afternoon ferry back and enjoy your evening elsewhere. It does not have nightlife.

This beach is the best for families jn culebra probably the only one with some infrastructure on the island, has bathrooms and shower to get the sand off. White sand and a lot of plants from the sea on the shore. Clear blueish green waters. Barely any waves. Trees around the bech make good shadows.

Probably the most popular beach in Culebra, this long beach seemed to be the most populated but it did not feel crowded. There were food trucks and chair rentals and BATHROOMS. It is one of the loveliest beaches in the Caribbean.

We went to Culebra and Flamenco Beach as a day trip. While in PR we stayed in Luquillo and got our ferry tickets to Culebra days in advance. The Culebra trip was 5/31/22. After arriving early, parking and catching the short shuttle our 9:30a ferry didn't leave until 10. The website said a 45 min ride...we docked at Culebra at 11:30a. Flamenco Beach was a cab or golf cart ride away and we got onto the beach around 12:15. Had to drop off our golf cart by 4:30 and we were at the dock at 5 and waited for the 5:30 return ferry. Again we didn't get off the boat at Ceiba until 7:20 and not out of the parking area until 7:40. Between ferry rides, and waiting we spent more than 5 hours getting to and from Culebra. There may have been faster boats, but we did not get a choice in boat. And... some folks got sick on the boat ride out and that ride was not pleasant (ride back was better).

Flamenco was a really beautiful beach and Tamarindo was the best snorkeling we did in PR.

However, for the hours of travel and waiting we would not do Culebra as a day trip again. Staying for a couple days in the little island might be the way to go.

Well , they don’t tell you that you have to buy ferry tickets months in advance since they’re limited. We lost the trip because we didn’t know and according to their rules there’s no money need back. Some one called ( Very nice person ) and said they would try to resale our tickets ( which are on high demand) it’s hard to get in one of these tours. We haven’t heard anything from them soo we figured no money will be refunded to us. Sad
They need to let people know about the ferry tickets ( book tickets in advance ) also it would be if refunds are granted especially if it’s not due to negligence on the customer side.

Flamenco Beach has a reputation, you'll often find it near the top of any list of top beaches in the world. And for good reasons:

1) Its long, about 1.5 miles long.
2) The water is crystal clear.
3) The sand is light, white, and fluffy. You can walk bare footed without any issues.

In other words, its the type of beach you expect to see in a postcard of the Caribbean.

Getting to Flamenco Beach is the issue if you're not staying in Culebra. You basically have three options:

a) You can take a boat tour there. There are plenty of operators, most of them leaving from Fajardo, that'll take you to Flamenco. It's the easiest way to get there in the sense that the tour operator plans everything for you, and all you need to do is show up and you get a wonderful daytrip to one of the most beautiful beaches in the planet. Tours there usually include an hour of snorkeling off the coast of Culebra before hitting Flamenco beach. While these are convenient, they have one issue: they are often re-routed to Icacos. The reason is the currents can be quite strong, and even when the boat does manage to make the trip to Culebra, its common for a lot of people in the boat to get seasick. So, if the forecast says the water won't be super smooth, the operator will reroute the trip to Icacos, which is much closer to Fajardo. And while Icacos is great, Flamenco beach it is not. So call a day ahead to make sure the tour will actually make the trip to Culebra if going to Culebra is important to you...and it should.

b) You can take the ferry to Culebra, and then either rent a vehicle or take public transportation to Flamenco beach. This will be cheaper and won't get you rerouted to Icacos. The logistics are just a bit more complex.

c) You can fly to Culebra. This is the most reliable way of getting there, but also the most expensive.

If I could re-do my trip to Puerto Rico, I'd probably go with option (b) and I'd try to stay a night or two in Culebra. But whatever you choose, a trip to Flamenco Beach is certainly recommended. There are not many places like it in the world.

This is the best beach I have ever visited! Blue water, white sand, tanks to explore, and awesome beach side cuisine at the kiosko.

We were staying on Culebrea for 6 days and we visited twice. First on a Sunday and it was packed and the water more calm. The sun on the water make for amazing colors. Know that it is $5.00 per vehicle to enter then additional $2.00 per person. It seemed steep for using a bathroom, The bathrooms are wood shacks 2 total/vaulted toilets, Parking lot was packed and could barely fit our jeep. We wasted time trying to find a spot and it is hot out…I can see tons of parking spots?? but the rest of the parking lot was roped off? Why ? It is Kinda an unorganized beach from all the descriptions I had read online previously. There’s not “food kiosks “ like I had read about on the main forum.. there are two food trucks. The shrimp empanadas were $5.00 and delicious! Have your hand wipes with as I mentioned not regular bathrooms etc to really wash your hands. There are two trucks that rent nice beach chairs $10.00 each for the day. Umbrellas were $20.00 a day. Bring your own cooler and chill for the day and enjoy. Beautiful beach walk to the tanks for a neat photo op. Second visit on a Friday busy but not like a Sunday and it was windy so some good size waves but still beautiful. Bring lots of sunscreen. Try get a spot by some palms if you don’t have an umbrella to sneak shade every now and then. Beautiful beach. I gave it a 4 because $9.00 to chill on public beach with a vaulted bathroom as it’s only amenities…steep.
