Like everyone else I agree that this really is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. The sand is super soft and the turquoise water is calm and clear. I'm not a big fan of going into the water but my boyfriend loved the snorkeling. Not as great as Hawaii but still outstanding. He went on and on about the fish and all the coral he saw. There were some vendors who served sandwiches and kabobs at the parking area. I think would have been neat to camp on the beach.
Now the ferry. We easily waited for over an hour and half to get tickets for the 9:00am ferry on a monday. The 9:00am sold out, but luckily they decided to run another ferry at 11:00am. We found this out by asking spanish speakers because the announcements were not in english. Lucky us!
No round trip or advanced tickets are sold. They will only begin to sell tickets one hour before the ferry is scheduled to leave. We got to the Culebra dock an hour before the 5:00pm ferry and we still weren't able to get tickets for it! They told us that another one would run at 9:30pm. However they wouldn't sell us tickets for that until the 5:00pm ferry had came and left. It was running an hour behind and it took an hour to board everyone. During this time we found out that they were not going to be running another ferry after all. However the captain let the 30 or so extra passengers who were unable to get tickets onto the ferry. I counted at least 5 extra seats around us! Nearly 5 hours later we were back in Fajardo and on our way home.
Side note: i noticed a sign saying that the government was going to spending $2,000,000 on renovating the fajardo dock. They really need this!
