Beaches on Culebra

There are eight beaches along the coast of Culebra, all with wide shores, but ranging in the types of sand.  They include dark brown, coral pink, and powder white.  All feature quiet shores and strikingly blue waters made even more special by the tropical birds squawking and the frogs croaking from the interior. 

Which Beaches Are Available?

You'll discover several beaches to choose from on the island. Snorkeling is an option at some of these beaches, if some of the people in your group are so inclined. Just click on the name of the beach for a detailed review of that part of the coast.

Flamenco Beach

Playa Tortuga: Nothing short of an absolutely beautiful beach; the crystal waters, wide views, and tropical landscape wil have you wishing you never had to leave. The entire island of Culebrita has views of Caribbean waters and other islands, and every angle offers wonderful views.

A second place to consider is Playa Punta de Soldado. The road leading to Playa Punta Soldado is reminiscent of a desert, lined with sandy dirt and cacti. An all-terrain vehicle is recommended.

Playa Luis Pena: Located just off the coast of Culebra and in a cove, Playa Luis Pena is well protected from the rough waters that can be in the are, making it a great beach for swimming and playing in the water. Land landlubbers can also explore the natural island, as much of it is untouched.

The table just below offers some details regarding the beaches located on the island.
