We did 3 days of snorkeling on this reef and was amazed on each day. The reef was dense and had so many different types of coral growing next to each other. Culebra is a snorkeling Mecca.

Best snorkeling since Bonaire and that says ALOT from us. Was less than a mile from VRBO and definitely a hidden gem. Many retired locals start their day snorkeling here... its that good!

Went to snorkel with Aqua Adventures and had a blast. Swam with fish and enjoyed the quite beach. Have to point out that it said that it was a nudist beach. But thankfully nobody was naked! Good place for the kids!!

You reach the beach through a locked gate in the parking lot of Flamenco beach, you ask any local and they will show you the gate. It's about half an hour hike, some of it uphill. There is nothing on the beach so take lots...More
