Playa Resaca is one of the most valued natural treasures of Culebra, an important turtle nesting site monitored by the Fish & Wildlife Service. Culebra offers many quiet, uncrowded beaches, Resaca is the most isolated due to the hike to get there, most likely you’ll have the beach all to yourselves.
We hate to break the secret, but surfers in the know carry their boards and take the hike to Resaca to ride the waves.
For hiking lovers… this is the most difficult hike on the island, the trail is narrow and steep. You’ll be walking across what is known as the Resaca Boulder Forest, making the hike more challenging and fun for hiking enthusiasts.
The reward is worth the effort, like Brava, Resaca is totally virgin, totally beautiful…
… and totally secluded with a striking landscape.
