Flamenco Beach

Flamenco, Culebra, Puerto Rico
14 Kudos
Flamenco Beach is listed as #6 of the top #10 beaches in the world by TripAdvisor. It is the main attraction of the island of Culebra. One of the neat things about this beach, after the shallow clear blue water and the white sands would be the abandoned army tanks that have been turned into art work. I'm not sure how many there are total but we found two of them. One was on the beach at the far left end of the horseshoe coast that makes up Flamenco, the second sits back a 100 or so yards from the sand on an elevation. This is a popular spot for snorkeling and scuba further out and swimming and sun bathing. There are a few shacks near the parking lot for food, lockers, alcoholic drinks, phone chargers and some other small things, the funny thing about the shops is that they are only open a few hours each day, I think Mon-Fri was until 2 pm.
