Great pics here and this is a shallow beach with little waves good for children. However, with so many other choices we choose to go somewhere where there was less seagrass.

Not only is Media Luna a great beach for children, it is good for opera singers too. When I was there, a woman with a classically trained voice waded into the surf and starting singing opera aria. Seriously. This island is always a surprise.

Great for small children. Absolutely beautiful! Not a busy beach and the waves are small so it's perfect to wade around in.

great beach to be alone, but not so great for swimming as there is a lot of seaweed. still, good for a walk amongst horses and very picturesque.

At the end of Sun Bay there are some trail and one of them will take you to Media Luna (Half Moon), and if you keep going it will take you to Navio. The day we went we could not reach Navio because of the trail, so we stayed at Media Luna, and like every beach in Vieques is gorgeous.... More

This is my favorite beach in all of Vieques. Every time I go to Vieques, this is my go to. It's serene, the ocean is calm and it's just absolutely beautiful.

An interesting experience we had while visiting this quaint place was the sound of galloping horses in the evening. We look out from our balcony and there are horses cavorting on the beach. Very unique.

Secluded. Nice warm clear waters. Perfect for relaxation, reading a book, and swimming. It's the beach prior to Navio which I also highly recommend!
