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!

The literature and media seem to point to Media Luna as a more secluded getaway than Sun Bay. This was not the case during our visit. All of the seclusion-seekers headed to Media Luna, resulting in a "crowded" experience (by Vieques standards, that means we saw 4 other Jeeps parked in the small bay). There were large amounts of grasses... More

Great for kids. Super shallow. Crazy picturesque. Nice for sitting in the water, staring out and sipping on a cerveza too.

We had already paid the $2 entrance fee so we decided to drive over to this beach. The water is very calm and sallow. There were many small kids on the beach and out in the water. If you are looking for a very laid back beach this is it.

This was like a swimming pool, super calm water to float and drink in! Waves are nice, but sometimes you just want to float and chill, THIS is the spot for that!

Medium size beach, less crowded than others... Is a pool.. Very calm water... a light turquoise blue. The left corner, is really amazing. A cozy spot surrounded rocks, like a private pool. This beach is fantastic!
