The Worlds Best Beaches - Flamenco Beach


Flamenco Beach is a magnificent strip of sand on the Puerto Rican Island of Culebra. It is nearly a mile (1.6 km) in length and situated in a picturesque Caribbean cove fringed on either side by coral reefs. The clear, shallow, and calm water makes it an ideal spot for swimming and snorkeling.

"A mile or so of striking white coral sand is juxtaposed by turquoise waters and well covered hills. But this beach offers more than the best stretch of coast in Puerto Rico - it offers solitude. Though the area was once used for naval exercises, it has now been given the status of a Marine Wildlife Reserve." (PuertoRico.com)
