Sun Bay was a great place to hang hammocks between the palm trees and enjoy the view and the families and friends on the beach. The locals come down and barbecue- You can tell the Viequens enjoy family day there. Very popular spot. A must visit.

Lovely long beach with a bit of a drop off as you get in the water which makes it a little trickier to get out. If you get there early enough you might not have to pay the $2.00 entrance fee.

The water was crystal clear and I love that you could walk forever on this beach and it's quite. The people you do run into are super friendly and enjoying the beach as well.

Sun Bay's long stretch of beach offers plenty of space for doing whatever beach activity is your favorite. One can hike along the beach until almost alone, lay out a blanket and nap under the shade of palm trees, read a book, etc. Or, set up near others where music is blasting, families are playing, kids are boogie boarding, etc....

The only downside of this beach was navigating the ruts and potholes in the road leading back to the beach in my rental car. But once we arrived, all cares and worries disappeared. We took Valerie's yoga class here on Monday morning. Never have I done yoga with such a gorgeous view. There is a $2 parking fee but its... More

Good public beach, but certainly not like Flamenco beach on the island of Culebra next door, or the beach of Culebrita. But this was the best of several we visited on Vieques. It is not the most secluded, but seeing people around on the long beach was nice. There were food & drink stalls as well. It was clean. Sand... More

Rivals Au Train Bay beach on Lake Superior in the UP of Michigan for beauty - but the water is 25 degrees F warmer!

We didn't know anything about Vieques except that it is beautiful when we decided to get married in Puerto Rico. Weddings in Vieques set us up with a wedding at Sun Bay beach and I was at first skeptical that there would be crowds and gawkers and it would be too commercial. NOT! The beach actually looks like the pictures... More

all the south beaches have south sand and clear water. enter the sun Beach area, turn left at parking, and drive around the parking lot and then back on the dirt road by the beach, easier parking and beach access

Absolutely my favorite beach.... Spectacular views, clean.... Beautiful water. Not crowded! Able to totally enjoy the Viequan climate! Only concern is that you cannot leave possessions un-guarded.
