Day Trip to Culebra Island and Playa Flamenco
Culebra island is a short ferry ride from mainland Puerto Rico and is home to Playa Flamenco , a beach known for its white sand and stunningly turquoise water. The beach itself doesn’t offer many services outside of the overpriced drinks at the entrance, so it’s best to pack a cooler full of snacks and drinks for the day.
Extra sunscreen is a must as well, as the UV rays are extra strong in this area and tend to catch tourists off guard. The fast ferry leaves from a port in Ceiba, Puerto Rico three times daily (at 6:00 am, 10:30 am, and 3:00 pm), and the trip takes around 45 minutes (the last ferry returns at 4:45 pm).
There are no reservations, so if you want to make sure you catch a ride, arrive in Ceiba early and purchase a round-trip ticket to ensure your spot on the return ferry.
