Flamenco Beach is as pretty as a postcard. This idyllic location is on the north side of Culebra, adjacent to the Wildlife Refuge. This stretch of coastline has one solitary hotel and very few tourists. If snorkeling is more to your liking, travel further north to Luna Pena Beach, another Culebra Beach. But if true seclusion is what you are seeking, the remote beach of Playa Resaca should be selected.

Also known as La Isla Nena or the 'Little Girl Island.' Located off the east coast of Puerto Rico, this 21-mile-long island remains largely undeveloped.
