Located on the north shore, Flamenco Beach is the only place in Culebra where it is permitted to camp; it has room for over 400 tents. The camping area is conveniently located a few feet away from the beach. This spectacular crescent-shape beach with clear water and fine white sand counts with food kiosks, showers and restrooms. The price per tent per night is $30 with a maximum of 6 people per tent. Open fires, however, are not permitted, and you may use one of the BBQ pits fit for charcoal or you can bring your own gas stove.

I just came back from 2 days camping there. It was really nice experience and I went there last year as well so I’m writing this information for people who are planning to go there. Because it was really hard to get information about it- someone wrote the bad review because of their bad experience which might be a rare case and someone wrote about good experience. So I"ll try to write the review and information with an objective opinion. Day rate is $30 for 1 tent(6persons maximum). Taxi/ bus from the ferry terminal-to the beach is $3 per person and also they charged the beach fee $2 per person (I couldn’t figure out if it’s a day rate or just one time, but I paid one time and got a wrist band.) all areas are available. There are several bathrooms, the one close to a basketball court is clean and open 9am to 7pm maybe. I don’t know the exact time when they close it. Also there are other bathrooms around each camp areas, it’s kinda dirty but you can use it 24H. Last year I struggled with mosquitoes at night but this year I didn’t find them, depends on season or date. There were a lot of ants on ground they didn’t come inside of tent if you close the entrance of tent tightly. They sometimes bite my foot but I didn’t care that much. Birds stole my Pringle’s even I put the rid on top, they know we have food. I saw an iguana and deers. Raining and strong sunshine back and forth this time, but last year, it was sunny everyday. Depends on the season maybe? Morning might be unstable weather. All kiosks are close by 4pm. There are 3 or 4 Kiosks, they sell Puerto Rican food, hamburgers, sandwiches, pizza, and drinks like a bar- hard to get healthy food like vegetables. There is one kiosk that is like a convince store where you could get anything that you need at the beach(it’s quite expensive though). Some of them accept credit cards and PayPal. I felt like it was a little bit expensive to stay there because when I went there last year(May, 2018) they didn’t work and camp site was totally free to stay because oh hurricanes. They said they re-open the office since August 2019, it is good news because Ive been wishing for early recovery and reconstruction. Local people said if you like the island, come back again and talk about the island to people around you, that will help people who are living and working in the island. I will definitely come back again. Not for the people, just I like the island. Super beautiful. And one more thing, the ferry from Ceiba to Culebra were little bit unstable. I couldn’t know if I could ride on or not until last minute because I arrived at terminal 30min before it departed. It’s better to be there earlier. And the departure time might be changed and local people first.

A stunning beach that is preserved and tucked away in Culebra. The sand is powdery and the scenery is captivating! It's a nature's paradise. Snorkeling, camping, kiosks for food, restrooms, locals renting beach umbrellas all make this a must experience!

They gate agent Yanita did not speak English. When we told them we extended our stay for two days we were told to pay on our way out. We spoke with them multiple times during these two days and not once was the two night fee mentioned. While we were at the beach Yanita seized all our belongings, completely destroying our expensive backpacking tent and several other items, locked them in her office, and left for the night. Despite knowing where and who we were and having our cell phone numbers and email addresses, she did this. We were left without any clothing, important medication, a tent, etc. She took everything. We waited hours in the dark and she never came back. We had to get a hotel late at night and have a different employee William allow us to retrieve our belongings. The Executive Director Maria Parrilla, who I contacted the next day, claimed that Yanita told her were were not paying them for two nights (they specifically told us to pay on their way out and made zero attempts to communicate this to us) and that she consented to the seizing and locking away of all of our belongings. Maria did not make any apologies or offer restitution for their destruction of hundreds of dollars worth of our personal belongings. We were treated HORRIBLY here and strongly recommend avoiding this campground. They treat the campers HORRIBLY. Beyond that, the main bathrooms were only unlocked for a couple of hours the entire week, the camping areas are infested with ants (covered from head to toe in bites), none of the drinking water canistwes work, and only one shower works. They really let this place go, unfortunately, as we used to love camping here. We recommend the hostel, which is $30 as well as has clean lodging, running water, and suitable amenities. As well there are several affordable airBNBs and camping AWAY from the Flamenco Beach staff.

The campground is "open," but the only working bathrooms (bring your own toilet paper) are near the kioskos at the parking area so you might want to set up in section A or B. Also, be aware that the kioskos close around 4:30 pm most days so plan your dinner accordingly. Beautiful and safe.

If your idea of camping activities consists of snorkeling, hiking, spear fishing, swimming, strolling on the beach, watching the sunrise/sunset or sleeping in a hammock. You must visit Flamenco Beach Campground! It's the best island camping you'll ever experience! When we visit family in PR, I tried to make time to visit Culebra.
