With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Flamenco Beach and Tamarindo Beach. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Zoni Beach, stroll through Playa Punta Soldado Beach, browse the collection at Culebra Public Library, and visit a coastal fixture at Culebrita Lighthouse.
