It's a picture-perfect little beach, where you can sit in the shade and look out on the bay through the trees. No waves, so pick a seaweed-less spot and sit out on the water with a cold beer.

Beautiful. Calm, clear, shallow waters. Places for shade. Only draw back was a stench close to the parking lot. Not sure if the smell was from trash or what but if the wind blew just right, it was really stinky!

This beach was amazing. We got there around 9am and were the only ones on the beach except for a few wild horses. Truly an awesome experience. The water is about a foot deep for 30 yards which makes this great for little ones that can walk. Very calm waters too.

This beach is a pretty beach and very shallow with little to no surf. It is a great place to go with kids- bring a float of your own too! There was a tropical storm during our visit to Vieques, so there was a lot of seaweed on the back of the beach, but I attributed that to what the... More

Easy to get to, convenient. Lots of shade. Tried to find Navio Beach (with rocks and caves) which was adjacent but never figured it out. The sand here is super fine almost like talcum; we were rubbing it all over our arms and legs for the exfoliation.

This was an absolutely beautiful beach with palms, white sand, and clear/turquoise water. There were no waves, so good for just floating around. It is literally shaped like a half moon ("media luna"), and the landscape surrounding the little cove is hilly and beautiful.

Beautiful beach, relatively easy to get to. Calm, blue waters the day we went. Enjoyed passing the horses along the road on the way. It was quiet on a Friday, just a couple other people.

Media Luna is a small quiet beach where the only way to get there is by renting a SUV or Jeep. Since the only way is with your own rented vehicle, this beach makes it a not so busy and all you find are few people at the beach. Nice Spot.

We had the beach to ourselves for most of the day. It is really calm and shallow. Very relaxing. We love this beach! It is the definition of peaceful!
