The best snorkeling on the island. Requires a 30-40 minute hike over the mountain from Flamenco Beach parking lot. It's not the first beach you come to. Keep walking to the right. Follow the single track path to the next beach, then walk down the beach. Eventually you will find the Carlos Rosario sign. Suit up. Explore. Lots to see.... More

The snorkeling here was the best that we experienced on Culebra. The coral was about 60% alive and there were a lot of sea fans. There were a lot of small fish, but not many large fish. We did see two medium size stingrays. The beach itself is nothing special. It is best to get here early in the day... More

Take a short hike from Flamenco beach and you have a lovely private beach all to yourself. The views are amazing and the snorkeling was really good. However, on the day we visited there were a ton of large jelly fish and it made us wary of being in the water. Other than that it was fantastic.

We were the only two on the beach around 9am then others trickled in. Snorkeled and laid on the white sandy beach while watching others swim and snorkel with excitement of the marine life they were experiencing! Pack a snack and water and you are good to go! Enjoy!

Arrived here by catamaran via East Coast Excursions who I highly recommend since they get here before any other boat traffic and the reef is yours. We docked offshore and had ample time in the water before lunch was served on board. The fish are plentiful and the reef is better than expected. Will attach photos. Getting here by boat... More

Incredible snorkeling and even saw a small nurse shark! Probably the best beach for snorkeling on Culebra. Hard to say for sure cause I didn't hit every single foot of coastline..but It is exceptional!

snorkeling was awesome here and very remote- it's liking you're swimming in a tropical fish bowl and just a 2 min walk from Tamarindo so you can hit both

the snorkeling once you arrive at the beach is 100% worth the easy 15-20 minute hike to get there. we came at peak season and stayed at least 2 hours and only saw about 6 other people the whole time, and none of them were snorkeling, so in addition to being the best snorkeling beach on Culebra, it is also...
