The dazzling, ethereal beauty of Punta Soldado’s turquoise waters make it an indispensable stop for visitors to Culebra.
Hidden away at the southwest corner of the island, getting to this beach is part of the adventure. The dirt road that leads visitors to this secluded cove can be a bit bumpy, but once you get there you’ll know it was worth it.
Punta Soldado is well known as a playground for amateur divers because of its crystal clear waters, gentle lapping waves and an abundance of reefs and corresponding marine life. The coast – littered with coral, rocks and seashells – gives it a distinct characteristic from the rest of the beaches on the island.
The arid environment and surrounding vegetation complete the setting, making it fit for a postcard. And as if that weren’t enough, views of the nearby island of Vieques and the eastern coast of Puerto Rico are possible during clear days.
