Culebra, Puerto Rico
Datiles Beach is one of the best kept secrets of Culebra. Until a few years ago, the road to climb the mountain, which protected it, was a dirt road and only a 4×4 could get there. Now the road has been paved, many tourists have been there, enjoying the low and calm waters that make it an unforgettable place.
This beach has very shallow water, so it is ideal for young children, kayaking and floating in the water. The water is crystal clear and in normal weather conditions and very calm and without waves. You can walk 140 feet and still have water at your knees in the deepest part. Grass beds allow banks of small tropical fish to play in the water, so young children will love the experience. The sunsets are also spectacular from the Datiles beach.
The beach is a quiet place to enjoy the simplicity, beauty and magic of Culebra.
Datiles Beach is also very popular for campers, occupied by few families mostly during the holiday weeks and in the summer months.
