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.

Amazing beach. Adventure to actually get to it. Drive sloooooowwww on the road to the beach---large holes, take a jeep, not a car. Careful when driving that you don't scratch up the jeep too much, just drive slowly. There is a small on one side of the beach that you can walk into. The surf here is quite active, but... More

The drive had a couple of scary moments but if you have the right car it is fine. We were there on a very rough day and the waves were huge and close to shore. We were wanting a relaxing time and this beach just wasn't for us. It was very beautiful and is great for pictures. Worth the short... More

I love this beach. I love the rocks on the side that are fun to scramble on. I love the caves you can swim into. I love the cliff we were diving off of. I love the crazed road that we had to bike up to get here. I love that there are only ever a few people. I love... More
