The beach was pretty covered in seaweed when we went, and a few times we got caught in some nasty seaweed swells. It also smelled weird, kind of like rotting vegetation, which I think may also have been the seaweed. Despite that, it's a lovely, large beach with pretty blue waters and decent waves, and exploring the cave was really... More

Nice surf for body surfing! Beautiful! Bring a boogie board. Only problem - road is so bad that car rental place said we couldn't drive out. Had to walk. It's worth it. Second trip had seaweed.

Luna beach very calm. Navio beach was just down THE WORST ROAD I have ever driven in my 35 years on the road. I am not kidding there are car parts along the road from people who did not make it. Park at Luna beach if you are weak of heart or car and walk. The beach has large waves,... More

This was my favorite beach in Vieques. You definitely need a jeep rental to get there and it is quite the hike to get to but ABSOLUTELY worth it. My family and I brought beach chars, a cooler and snacks and had an amazing day on the beach. The sand is white, there are shading spots, and it is an... More

Really nice walk to Navio Beach. It was nice getting away from the crowds, nice waves the day we went for body surfing. And there was no one there! We brought lunch, water, and beverages in a back pack. It was a great walk!

A lovely beach to explore. There are caves to the left and a sink hole cave on the right. Not as visited as other beaches but worth the trip.

take the drive here, just don't eat anything right before. Lovely beach, but very windy and wavy when we were there. It was nice to just hang out on the beach, although I was hoping to actually swim.

Our preteen boys loved this beach the most out of all the beaches on Vieques, for the big waves. The road there is awful, though- even though we had a jeep, we would park at Media Luna and walk the rest of the way (only 5-10 min) due to the crater-sized potholes.

I went with my friends to Vieques for the first time and this beach definitely made the trip worth it. It's so beautiful I think I haven't gone to a beach as beautiful as this. I can't wait to go back!!!! Also, I see a lot of people didn't like the bumpy ride to get there but it's definitely worth... More

The road to this beach is bumpy and muddy, but it is worth it for the adventuresome. Rock caves and jumping. Beautiful and quiet beach.
