Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Isla Culebra

Isla Culebra
December 17th, 2014

One of the world’s top ten beaches is Flamenco Beach in Isla Culebra, rated number 3 by CNN Travel and named the second most beautiful beach in the world by Discovery Channel. Located on Culebra’s northern shore, Flamenco Beach has crystal clear waters that hard and soft corals, beautiful reef fish, exotic sting rays and eagle rays, and fascinating sea turtles call home.

Some of the most awesome reefs you will probably see in your life are found in Isla Culebra including Datiles Reef, Carlos Rosario Reef, Tamarindo Reef, and Melones Reef. Explore Cayo Luis Peña, the small island reserve where scuba diving, hiking, and photography will be most enjoyable because of the shimmering blue sea, exhilarating trails, and panoramic views.

Flamenco Beach is a great place to go for the whole family where swimming, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, surfing, and other water sports would be perfect to engage in. If history is more of your thing, the great waters of Isla Culebrita, a.k.a. Little Culebra, will beckon you to visit Culebrita Lighthouse, the oldest of its class in the entire Caribbean.

Bird Watching and Kayaking

Kayaking and bird-watching may be two activities that are far from your mind when you’re on vacation but on Isla Culebra, they are truly exciting. Native, shore, and migratory birds congregate on the island at any given day. Rent a kayak and go around the mangroves or into the small bays and watch the birds in these areas.

Nightlife

What’s a beach vacation without the nightlife, right? At Isla Culebra, get ready for some star gazing, karaoke nights, and live music after sunset in the town’s ferry dock or any of the beaches that face Tamarindo or Melones Reef. Although most of the bars close by 10 PM, one spot, called The Spot, is usually open until late at night during weekends.

Forget Golf, the Casino or the Usual Theater Entertainment

The island is really for vacationers who want to enjoy a quiet time sunbathing on white powdery sand and engaging in water sports so some people may find Isla Culebra too tiny geographically to explore but that doesn’t mean non-aquatic enthusiasts will be left with little more than wading in the blue waters.

You can have a gastronomic feast too. Order “fish pizza” and “hot pockets” at The Traveling Chef or the shrimp po’boy at the Homeless Dog Café and you’ll understand why a lot of people come here for the food.

Don’t leave Isla Culebra without visiting the Dinghy Dock to experience a bounty of the freshest seafood and have fun watching giant tarpon swim right up to you at the deck while you feast on the day’s catch.

Okay, so there’s no golf or casino or theater entertainment on Isla Culebra but what this island offers is a far more enjoyable holiday surrounded by nature’s beauty and this beats swinging a putt or a Royal Flush any day.
