Zoni Beach / Playa Soni - Culebra, Puerto Rico / Caribbean

Zoni Beach…a wide and long living canvas with dazzling shades of blues with views of the archipelago of Culebra and the islands of St. Thomas and Tortola in the distance.  Bring your favorite book, take a walk and claim a shaded spot under a leaning palm tree and relax to the sounds of the surf without crowds even on a busy day.  Zoni Beach is the second most popular beach in Culebra, an option for beach lovers wanting a more quiet and secluded feel than Flamenco.


In contrast with Flamenco, there are no facilities at Zoni Beach. Bring everything you will need at the beach, be sure to bring enough sunblock and water especially if you’re taking the walk down the beach.

If you love taking long walks on the beach…this is the one beach you don’t want to miss. Zoni Beach has it all for the perfect walk, scenery, the sound of the surf, light soft sand for ease of walking and another beach to explore at the north end.


During your walk you’ll get to appreciate just about every shade of blue on these precious waters.  You’ll hear the singing of birds as they fly above dancing to the soft ocean breeze. The surf gently washes ashore and invites you to go for a quick dip before continuing exploring this romantic beach.


On your way to Zoni Beach from Dewey, be sure to stop at the Museo El Polvorin to learn about the history of Culebra.  The drive to Zoni is very scenic and relaxing, you’ll pass the smallest boardwalk on the Wildlife Refuge, you’ll drive along Ensenada Bay and go up and down hills with gorgeous views of the coastline, the island of Culebrita and the rest of the islands on the archipelago.

Zoni Beach…A Turtle Nesting Site

Zoni Beach / Playa Soni is a Leatherback and Hawksbill turtle nesting site during the months of April through June.  Volunteers who find turtle sites will mark them as you see below. Please refrain from walking on / around the areas. If you happen to see any turtles please do not touch them or play with them.


Walking to the right side of Zoni Beach

As you walk towards the right, you’ll find cozy spots under leaning palm trees and sea grape vines where you can hang a hammock for that perfect dreamy tropical experience. The beach area is more narrow on the right side but feels more secluded and private.



Laying under the shade of a leaning palm tree with no one around…it doesn’t get any more dreamy and romantic than this.

At the end of the beach, you’ll find beautiful rock formations, crystal clear waters and the best vantage point to admire the breathtaking scenic beauty of this expansive beach.


If you want to get in the water and swim a little, this spot is the best.  Keep an eye on your children at all times, the waves are playful in the summer time, but in the winter they get rougher.




Think the waters are clear and the colors are gorgeous on the photo below?  Just wait until you’re here in person…it’s beauty is truly captivating and enchanting.


Walking the left side of Zoni Beach

The beach is wider on the left side of Zoni Beach.  On summer months you may find families playing beach volleyball and other beach sports on the sand.


Gorgeous even with storm clouds above it.


At the end of Zoni, sit on rock and enjoy breathtaking views of the entire length of the beach and the Culebra archipelago.



On the other side of the rocks, you will arrive to Tortolo Beach. The color of the water is tempts you to get in, but be careful, it gets deep very quick. Again, there are no lifeguards in the area or at Zoni Beach, everything you do here is at your own risk.
