About Isla Culebra

The island of Culebra -- the smallest of the Spanish Virgin Islands -- is just seven miles long and 3.5 miles wide and exudes an entirely different vibe than its popular neighbor, Puerto Rico, the commonwealth to which Culebra technically belongs. Some 2,000 people call this U.S. territory home and adore Culebra's quiet quirkiness.

People flock here in search of solitude, nature (birds and sea life) and beaches. In fact, those in the know commonly refer to Flamenco Beach as one of the world's best. But there are a number of gorgeous beaches on Culebra, with many affording privacy (sometimes you won't see another soul on the sand) and spectacular views.

Cayo Luis Pena, an islet that's part of the Culebra National Wildlife Refuge, has plenty of tucked-away beaches that can be reached by rented kayaks. After you work up an appetite, enjoy lunch at one of the many restaurants in Dewey, the island's "capital," such as Dinghy Dock (seafood), Mamacita's (burgers, sandwiches and fish) or Zaco's Tacos (incredible carnitas, beer-battered fish and tuna tacos).

Why go to Isla Culebra?

Pros:

Home to some of the world's best beaches, Culebra offers scenic views and a bit of seclusion

Cons:

Don't expect Culebra to be much like Puerto Rico's capital city of San Juan -- it's much more laid-back

Bottom Line:

Culebra is an experience in and of itself, especially if you prefer unspoiled beaches to commercialized ones

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

Currency is the U.S. dollar. Local banks and ATMs are readily available in the town center, Dewey, as well as at the Colmado Costa del Sol grocery store near the airport.

Language?

The official language of Culebra is Spanish, but most residents also speak English.
