  • Quiet beach with not too many people. There is a place where snorkeling equipment is available to rent. We were able to see the turtles, different species of fish and corals.

  • PLEASE DON'T GO HERE. You should only go to Flamenco beach. I say this because this nice little beach was the best place we went in Puerto Rico. The beach was nearly empty, the waves were gentle and the snorkeling was AMAZING. We had such a great day and the sea life was beyond our expectations.
  • Great place for snorkeling! Saw some sea turtles. The beaches are beautiful. No chain stores, authentic.
  • Loved the snorkeling. Saw 4 turtles too the left side in the grassy area. Water was clear and calm.
  • A beautiful beach, right by the nature. Definitely a different experience than Flamenco and Zoni. More rocks, less sand. Beautiful trees to camp under & fantastic sunset view. Totally worth checking out.
  • Probably the best all around beach in Culebra. Not crowded but the water is just as nice as Flamenco and you can see a lot more fish. Just lots of rocks so be ready!
