The Beach at Tamarind
20 March 2012
Tuesday, Mar 20
Today we up anchored and headed around the point for the national park on the western side of Culebra. After a Biig trip of perhaps 6 miles, we picked up two moorings off Tamarind beach. A pretty spot with what seems to be good snorkeling, a few people on the limited beach and just a few boats on moorings here.
We jumped in the water to check out the bottom and found a few squid lingering around. In general there seem to be few fish here, but the coral heads are nice and the live coral is quite extensive on the northern part of the beach…Unfortunately we enjoyed a leisurely float toward the end point which meant a stiff current heading back….we had to work for it heading back to the boat!
It appears that you can take a 20 or so minute hike from here over to Flamenco beach, on the north side of the island…so that will be our event for tomorrow!
