Create an itinerary including Flamenco Beach
Soft sand, clear water, and plenty of amenities make Flamenco Beach one of the most pleasant coastal spots on the island of Culebra. In an area known for outstanding swimming, diving, and sport fishing opportunities, this pristine beach sits within a sheltered, horseshoe-shaped bay. Get away from it all by picking a remote spot at either edge of the beach, or stretch out near one of the food kiosks for a chance to relax, soak up some sun, and munch on tasty local food. Nearby operators provide access to restrooms, showers, and equipment rentals. See Flamenco Beach and all Culebra has to offer by arranging your trip with our Culebra online journey planner.

  • Easy to see why this beach has made the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world so many times.
  • Ranked as one of the top beaches in the world, Flamenco is a postcard-perfect stretch of white sand and turquoise waters. First thing first - reaching there is a pain - means a) Rent a car- 50 KM- 60-70 Mins ride b) Reach Ceiba -would suggest booking ferry tickets in advance (gets sold out quickly, especially on Weekends) 50 Minutes Ferry ride to Culebra Island c) $5 shuttle to Flamenco beach, as its a popular beach, you will get a shared taxi outside the terminal It takes app 4-5 hrs and then you will reach there but trust me, that beach is worth it. The moment we saw this, we were like - "wowwwwwww" The horseshoe-shaped silver beach is indeed picture-postcard pretty, but it can get crowded on the weekends. We went there on Tuesday so there was not much rush. It does have amenities though: the only beach on Culebra that does. Beach is practically wave-less, which makes it ideal for snorkeling, swimming, unwinding, playing in the sand, or simply beach-bumming. If you were to spend the entire day at Flamenco, you’ll observe a spectacular show of color changes on the water, ranging from clear like glass, soft baby blue to turquoise to deep emerald green. We hit it at 2 PM, with amazing colors. also what amazed me- it's sand. The sand of Flamenco is light, white, soft, very fine, unlike Escambron-Condado beach. perfectly landscaped shore with green rolling hills as the backdrop, lush tropical plants providing shade to visitors While you’re there, don't miss your chance to bump into Flamenco’s most iconic attraction, The Tank, which is a reminder of the US Navy’s occupancy of Culebra. Food & Drink: there are 2 food trucks near to beach offering local food and drinks. How to reach there by Car- If you are planning to Visit Playa Flamenco and come back to San Juan then I would suggest taking route 3while going and Route 187 while coming back. a couple of reasons for this- 1) Take Route-3. You wanna save money on toll skipping Route-66 (no sense paying rental company for its transponder and $10/day) 2) while coming back to San Juan, take Route 3 & 187. Its Scenic route 3) On Route-187 - Pinones area which is famous for its street/roadside small/decent food joint - you don't wanna miss if you are a foodie or 20-minute flight
