It's an adventure getting there (4x4 only), and when you finally do, it's kind of a let-down: a small beach, mostly overrun by seaweed and vegetation.

We spent 2 days at this beach. Day 1 was very crowded as it was during a local holiday and on a weekend. But the water was so warm and inviting and the surf was great. Day 2 was much less crowded and we practically had the entire beach to ourselves. My favorite beach on Vieques.

One of the busier beaches we went to in August, a little tight to lay out in my opinion, some opportunities to snorkel, don't miss out!

Navio beach is tough to get to, but that means there is almost nobody there. Most people stop at sun bay, but keep going to get to this beautiful spot. the waves are fun to swim in. the caves are beautiful. The and is nice. The one downside is there is a higher level of seaweed on the actual beach.... More

This beach was beautiful, the surf rough. Great beach to body surf or boogie board on, but I would not recommend it to families with young kids.

This beach was amazing. Sure, it's hard to get to, but worth the trail to get here. The water is perfect, the sand is softer than most of the sand in Vieques and the beach is generally quiet. This was my favorite beach in Vieques.

I'm sure this changes depending on conditions, but there was unfortunately a lot of seaweed floating around in the swimming areas at Navio beach. The waves were awesome, though, and we didn't let the seaweed stop us.

You need a 4WD vehicle to reach this beach. Please read that sentence again. You will not reach this beach in a normal car. Once there, it's worth it. Quiet, but the waves roughed us up a bit.

We had to visit as many beaches as we could, so we trekked down the bumpy, pot-holed road to Navio. Just a short visit since it was a less protected beach - larger waves. We prefer the calmer waters, but it was beautiful. Less crowded since it's harder to get to.
