With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
On the 2nd (Thu), kick back and relax at Playa Punta Soldado Beach and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Flamenco Beach. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: kick back and relax at Zoni Beach, head off the coast to Culebrita Island, and then enjoy the sea views from Culebrita Lighthouse.
