We only had a late afternoon at Brava but I sure liked what I saw. Long sandy beach, rocky at one end. The walk down through a forest with butterflies and flowers was a highlight of our trip. It's a little hard to find the trail but worth it. We saw four other people while we were there. Surf was... More

Playa Brava is reachable via a mildly strenuous 30-minute hike down through a lush, low coastal forest. The trailhead, with a small parking area, is at the following coordinates: 18.320507, -65.277875. Almost nobody seems to visit this beach--great spot to get away from everything. The surf was pretty rough the day we visited, which is apparently typical, but still not... More

It was quite tricky to find this beach and honestly a little scary! The map showed that you turned between the cemetery and the museum, but that was not accurate. You actually turn up the road past the museum and follow it to the end of the roadway. Then begin hiking. The hike itself was not all that bad, but... More

Short 30 minute hike through a canopied trail to get to this beach. We are experienced hikers and were able to easily carry a bag of beach supplies and navigate the trail in flip flops. Hike was nice, payoff was huge! We walked this beach and climbed the lava rocks for at least 2 1/2 hours and saw one couple... More

Brava is a great expansive beach, secluded, and you will encounter few people if any. The water can be a little rough in some spots depending on when you go, and can even vary along different spots on the beach. Just use some common sense and be aware of possible currents and rip tides. My wife and I went in... More

This beach had a well earned name of BRAVA. If you want to relax and swim definitely go to the other beaches in culebra.

On our last day on the island we asked our local friends what else we needed to see. They said to go to this beach. Up the road RIGHT past the small history museum, all the way to the end of the road. The trail to the beach extends from the end of the road. Not a tough hike -... More

This is the most beautiful beach we found. We hiked the whole length of the beach and spent the whole afternoon here. I would recommend packing bug spray for the hike, water and a lunch!
