Information about Flamenco Beach

Information about Flamenco Beach
Flamenco Beach is a seaside resort in Puerto Rico, United States on the Island of Culebra.
Geography

Flamenco is located on the western shore of Culebra. The beach lies on a half-mile-wide, horseshoe strip of coast. The beach is bordered by the Culebra National Wildlife Refuge, which is of itself one of the oldest wildlife preserves in the United States. Off the coast of Flamenco, approximately a quarter-mile, is a reef where the surf breaks.

Characteristic of Flamenco is the beach's white sand.

Flora and fauna


Located in the waters off of Flamenco are parrot fish, blue tang, multiple species of wrasse and other Caribbean sea fish species. Crustacean species such as Ghost Crab are also observed.

Tourism

Flamenco Beach is a popular tourist destination among mainland Puerto Ricans and Americans and has been considered by Discovery Channel to be the second-most beautiful beach in the world.

You can easily come to Flamenco Beach, spend all day here, and leave without seeing its fascinating landmarks. Rather than miss out, walk north along the beach and you'll soon come to a vivid relic of the now-defunct military presence on this island. A rusted tank, partly submerged in the water, sits on the sand. Colorful designs and symols have been painted on it, but it remains a completely (and intentionally) incongruous sight in this idyllic place. There is a second tank, not as colorfully painted and hidden behind the brush. To get to it, you'll have to walk along the sandy path through the campgrounds.
