Flamenco Beach, Culebra
The #1 in Puerto Rico
Flamenco Beach is one of the top 3 main attractions on the island, even though it is located on Culebra Island. Perfect sand, clean & calm water and great for snorkeling.
White Sand Paradise
The sand here is probably the main reason its so popular, since it's not just almost white but also very fine. It's a pleasure to take a walk and feel it between your toes.
Welcome to Puerto Rico’s most impressive beach by far - and one of the most beautiful beaches of our planet. Playa Flamenco consistently ranks as one of the top beaches in the world.
This gorgeous natural beach has an effect that you can’t put into words - you just have to experience it yourself. Feel the very fine and almost white sand under your feet as you take a walk along the seashore which extends over a length of almost a mile, bathe in the warm crystal clear water or simply submerge into another world and watch the countless colorful fish darting between the corals.
Playa Flamenco is one of the must-see places, especially when you live in Puerto Rico, from where Culebra is very easily and cheaply accessible. One option would be catching the ferry from Fajardo to Culebra, which takes an hour and costs less than $5 for two people. Another possibility are the flights offered daily from San Juan’s Isla Grande Airport (SIG) or from Ceiba. On the island itself you can rent a jeep or simply take the shuttle bus, which runs between the town and Playa Flamenco and cost less than 3 dollars.
Directly behind the beach there is big camping ground. Here you can also find showers and restrooms everywhere ont he camping area. This camp site is the only place on Culebra where camping is permitted. The price per night is $20
