Culebra is known for beaches, wildlife, nature, outdoors, and adventure. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: kick back and relax at Flamenco Beach, stroll through Playa Punta Soldado Beach, head off the coast to Culebrita Island, and find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
