Little Island

With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Step off the beaten path and head to Zoni Beach and Carlos Rosario Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Flamenco Beach and Playa Punta Soldado Beach. There's much more to do: step off the mainland to explore Culebrita Island, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and enjoy the sea views from Culebrita Lighthouse.
