Culebra is an ocean paradise. Spending time on the water in Culebra is a must! The energy of this island is derived from the sea. Exploring the coastline and the water are a very special way to discover the true energy of paradise. You will find white-sand beaches, coral beaches, cays, shallow and deep coral reefs and many rocky points surrounding Culebra.
Please use common sense and show respect while on our beaches and in our waters. The Marine Reserve prohibits fishing - it's a complete "no-take" zone. No chasing, harassing, feeding or touching the wildlife. This includes the coral. "If you must stand... stand on sand." What looks to be rock is most likely hard corals that are hundreds of years old but can be damaged or killed in mere seconds. Even outside of the reserve, these are good rules to follow. Please also take all your trash with you and dispose of it properly.
Please respect our home, our environment!
