Culebra boasts some of the best beaches in the Caribbean and one of the best beaches in the world (Trip Advisor #6 beach in the world, 2016), Flamenco Beach. Flamenco is a beautiful beach with kiosks for food and drinks and is typically the first stop for tourists. Although the most recognized, Flamenco is not the only amazing beach on the island. Zoni Beach is less traveled and looks out to Culebrita and the US Virgin Islands. If you have an adventurous side and don't mind a hike, Resaca and Brava Beaches might be for you. They are located on the north side of the island and you could very well see some surfers catching waves. They both require a drive then a 20-30 minute hike, then solitude!
Snorkeling & Scuba
Not all of the beaches are for laying on the beach and catching waves. There are several beaches that are great for snorkeling with coral reefs close to shore. The reefs give protection for fish and sea turtles from their predators, making the snorkeling breathtaking. Melones Beach is close to town and is excellent for floating over the reefs and following fish. Carlos Rosario Beach shares a parking lot with Flamenco Beach. It is a 15 minute hike to the beach, but opens up to some great snorkeling where you might just see one of the famous endangered sea turtles of Culebra. Other prime snorkeling spots are Tamarindo Beach, and Punta del Soldado. The reefs around Culebra have been destroyed over the years by military, boats, pollution and irresponsible divers. We ask that you are respectful of the island's reefs by looking but not touching and certainly not standing.
Scuba diving is available in Culebra via Culebra Divers. Book one day or a full week to fully explore the underwater scene off Culebra. Culebra Divers offers snorkeling tours and rents equipment as well. They are located across from the ferry ticket office.
Another great way to see and explore Culebra is by kayak along the shores. There are plenty of good spots to kayak around Culebra and several kayak tour companies.
If you bring a boat with you or decide to get a water taxi, you can visit Culebrita or Luis Peña islands. They are small uninhabited islands off the Culebra coast. These islands are protected reserves but have hiking trails to really get in touch with nature. These remote beaches will take your breath away and give you an appreciation for where you are.
