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.

Playa Tortuga: The only way to reach the beach is via boat or seaplane. It is extremly popular though, and it will be easy to find a tour or charter that will take you here.

A second option worth considering 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: A well known kayaking spot, Playa Luis Pena's clear calm ocean is the perfect shove off point for anyone looking to explore the tropical waters of Puerto Rico. Don't worry if you're not into kayaking though, this beautiful beach works just fine for sun-tanning and swimming.
