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.

  • Warm, clear waters. Even though the ferry and taxi areas were full, the beach was not very crowded and there was tons of space to pick from at the beach. They rent umbrellas but very limited stock...

  • All I can say is the Flamenco Beach I knew over the last 10 years is now gone. It’s now covered with sargassum seaweed and littered with trash. No one is maintaining the beach now that the park...

  • 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
  • Words nor pictures can do this beach justice. Water is so beautiful, calm, and clear. Sand is amazingly soft and white. Cliffs and hills surround you on all sides. Simply breathtaking. We flew over from Ceiba and the aerial view was surreal as well. Come early in the day when its not busy. There are excellent reefs all the way to the right by the old pier that are easy snorkeling, we saw a countless number of different fish. Put this place on your bucket list. Truly amazing day and a half!!
  • Flamenco Beach was VERY NICE early in the morning. Took a taxi for $5 per person at 6.a.m. from the ferry port area & from 615 to about 830 a.m. the beach had about four to eight people on it and the water was BEAUTIFUL! I heard they been trying to charge people to enter the beach but at 6 a.m. I just walked in and enjoyed the beach. I do have to say if they are going to charge for the beach.....1) They better clean up the seaweed & 2) They better repaint that tank to the U.S. flag or Puerto Rican flag for photos! But it was a WONDERFUL BEACH to enjoy!
  • One of the best beach in Puerto Rico. Ferry from Ceiba to Culebra also provides amazing view. This beach is Clean, blue & turquois color water! From certain point of entries to beach, they do ask for 2 $ entry fee per person ( as of Apr 2022) to enter to the beach. Not a lot of restaurant around this beach, so bring your own food. Chair and umbrella rental is available. You can also do Shuttle/Taxi from Culebra ferry port to reach to this beach. Crystal clear water. Nor Crowded during weekdays! It rains on and off but it dries out pretty quick. Not a lot of options for Water sports at this beach. Best Views.
