By noon it becomes quite crowded, but it is a lovely small beach with some snorkeling places. Easy to get in and out of the water.

Out of all of them, Prieta was our favorite beach, and the one we returned to a second time in our 9 day stay. It was just deep enough to be able to go in gradually, it was so pretty - stop and take a picture as you go down the little hill from the parking lot - it's worth... More

It would be selfish not to post about this beautiful not-so-secret but certainly far from crowded spot. Spend a day here - you'll love it!

Secret beach is easy to get to and very pretty. Nice swimming and we found some decent snorkeling there, despite it being a bit windy and wavy. There aren't many spots with shade, so get there early. Our spot had quite a few sandburs.

There is little shade here so come prepared. There is great snorkeling but you have to swim way our almost to where a reef goes across the opening to the bay. There are some old sea encrusted pipes teaming with fish on the shore side of the reef but if you go on to and over the reef you can... More

The beach is not a secret; hasn't been in a long time. It was alright - but really, IMO, not as nice as many other beaches in Vieques.

Every beach we tried was full, but this one still had some private little spots to enjoy. The sand was perfect, and the water was clear. Still, seemed more crowded than when we were here 7 years ago.

My wife sat on this beach for several hours and only had two other couples there. The walk from the small parking lot through the trees was only a couple minute walk and then you come out of the woods to a great beach. The water was calm and had a couple good areas for snorkeling. Definitely would recommend.

This beach was my favorite on Vieques. It has turquoise water and powder like sand. There are little shaded nooks between the palm trees and beach vegetation if you arrive early.
