Culebra is a popular weekend tourist destination for Mainland Puerto Ricans, Americans and residents of Vieques. Because of the "arid" nature of the island there is no run-off from rivers or streams resulting in very clear waters around the archipelago. Even though the island is small, Culebra boasts several restaurants that serve delectable island-fusion cuisine.
In Culebra, the most famous beach is Flamenco, a two-mile stretch of white, pristine sand. It is the only beach on the island with amenities such as lifeguards, a camp site, showers, bathrooms, a parking area and kiosks that serve local “frituras” (i.e. empanadillas, arepas, fish, etc.) and other savory dishes and beverages. On the northern end you will encounter a beautifully painted World War II tank, which is a reminder of the US Navy’s occupancy of Culebra. For some good snorkeling, walk in the opposite direction to the “Muellecito” (little dock). Flamenco Beach can be reached by shuttle buses from the ferry. Flamenco Beach was named one of the Best Beaches in America and the Best Escape Beach by the Travel Channel. The beach extends for a mile of white coral sand and is framed beautifully by arid tree-covered hills. The beach is also protected by the Department of Natural and Environmental Resources as a Marine Wildlife Reserve.
Located about nineteen miles east of Puerto Rico and eight miles north of Vieques, Culebra is the smallest of the inhabited Spanish Virgin Islands. She is seven miles long and 3 miles wide.
Culebra is an island municipality under the domain of Puerto Rico, which has been under the protection of the United States, since its annexation from Spain in 1898. In 1909 the Culebra National Wildlife Refuge was established. The refuge takes in over one thousand four hundred acres of land and is well known both as a nesting area for numerous seabirds, as well as the endangered leatherback turtle and Culebra giant anole.
Culebra has by about three thousand residents. The quiet, unspoiled island has little to offer in nightlife, except for a quiet, safe walk in the moonlight or the occasional sound of guitar music from one of her few night spots. The island has little crime and very little to do, but relax at the beach or your favorite watering hole. The snorkeling and scuba diving around Culebra are outstanding. Hard and soft corals abound in the shallows and magnificent reefs encircle the island. Tropical fish and other sea life abound. The depths rarely exceed one hundred feet.
