World's Best Islands 2013

World's Best Islands: Culebra

Hemis / Alamy

No. 19 Culebra, Puerto Rico

Situated just 20 miles east of Puerto Rico, but sans high-rise hotels and flashy tourist spots, Culebra is beloved for its low-key Caribbean vibe. The island’s Playa Flamenco, cited as one of the world’s best white-sand beaches, is just the place to kick back and sip a rum punch cocktail.

Where to Stay: Tamarindo Estates, set on a private 60-acre estate where the cottages have roofed verandas with Culebra coastline views. tamarindoestates.com
