Flamenco Beach Culebra Island Puerto Rico
 


This is Flamenco Beach in Culebra, one of the worlds more beautiful beaches.

From the ferry dock in Culebra or from outside the airport you can easily catch public transportation to Flamenco Beach. $2. each way.

You would be wise to take your drinking water (and perhaps a sandwich) with you. You can eat in town ... or sometimes the Restaurant/Bar, at the hotel at the far end of the beach, is open. Little Kiosks that sell cheap food have opened in Flamenco Beach but probably not in the winter mid-week.

Culebra has more tourists than Vieques Island and is more expensive. The 'Water Taxi' ride out to Culebrita Island and/or to Luis Pena Island is well worth the trip. The Campgrounds on Flamenco beach is one of the better places to camp in the world, you may need a permit in advance, you may not. ..see the camping pages for info.

Kayaking is great fun in Culebra. Kayaking in Puerto Rico offers a day time snorkeling trip.

Culebra is a nice place to bicycle. Culebra Bike and Beach Rentals 787-742-2209 is located right in town.

Information about Culebra can be found on the Isla Culebra Website.

** I have been asked by travelers to warn that: "Very often, on a weekend, you simply cannot get a ticket to Culebra. Some people camp out overnight in front of the ticket window in order to get tickets, and you don't stand a chance. So if this is your schedule ( to go to Culebra on a summer week-end) you might want to consider flying (with previous reservations). There is an airport in Ceiba in the Roosie Roads Base and the fare is $35. one way.
