Sandy beach at Tamarindo
Culebra, Puerto Rico

For the benefit of other visitors like me, I would like to make a correction to the post stating that there are no sandy beaches at Tamarindo. There is one small sandy beach many people do not know about.

For years I have been an avid sailor and come to Culebra as much as I can. Also love to visit town, where I have befriended some locals. While cruising near the Tamarindo shoreline I usually opt to anchor and sometimes stay overnight at Bahia Tamarindo (this is the official name in the NOAA Culebra chart). By the central area of this bay, better known as Playa Tamarindo by the locals, there is a pretty, sandy beach with usually calm pristine waters. Next to this is the old torn-down building used to weigh cattle in the old days. The beach is a third of a mile from Tamarindo Estates.

I found a posting of a chart showing the beach’s location at:

Playa Tamarindo is the sandy beach which many Culebra natives look for when the northerly Winter swells make it risky to swim at Flamenco beach.

You are correct but it is not close enough to Tamarindo to be easily accessable to the guests staying there ie. lugging chairs, snorkles and kids 1/2 mile down the road just doesnt cut it. But you are right about there being some sand on the stretch.
