Whether you want to walk, sunbathe, swim or find a nice shady spot for your hammock, this easily accessible beach has something for everyone. Drive through a herd of grazing horses and find your perfect spot. On weekends you have to pay $2, but if you pull out a $20, they'll just wave you through because they have no change!!!

I don't normally use that word, but it's the perfect word to describe this beach. I had doubts when I originally heard that this is the most easily accessible beach yet still one of the most beautiful. Sounded like an oxymoron to me, but I'm glad to say I was proved completely wrong. Plus, it's in walking distance from town,... More

This beach was by far my favorite! I arrived in the early afternoon and there were (2) other families there. The view and the water was AMAZING. Loved it!

Our first time on the island we did not visit Sun Bay, instead spent a lot of time a La Chiva, Puntas Arenas, and Navio. However, this past time we went La Chiva was closed for cleanup. We also stayed for two weeks this time instead of one. So, we spent at least 4 days at Sun Bay this time.... More

We walked there from our hotel room at least once a day. It is very accessible for snorkelers, great for swimming and has a park with horses walking around grazing in an open field. Palm and coconut trees along the banks. Tasty coconut if you can get the darned things opened.

Everyone raves about Flamenco Beach, and it's rating as one of the best beaches in the world, and we visited Sun Bay as well as Flamenco Beach while visiting Puerto Rico, and I have to say that Sun Beach was just as beautiful if not more. I feel that it was cleaner due to the less traffic of people all... More

this is one of the many beaches you can enjoy in Vieques. Take your snorkel and get lost in the water. It could be perfect if it had more sandy area to out your towel and bag but the trees make up for it since you need some shade to hide from this perfect weather.

If you arrive before 10am or after 5pm (I think) you don't have to pay to get in...but it's only $2/car anyways. That goes to keeping the place nice, which it is very nice. It's a huge beach, where most the locals go. But the beach is so big, that you do not get the crowded feeling. Great snorkeling to... More

One day, we drove past this beach on our way to Navio and Media Luna. It was gorgeous and I got out to take pictures. We were short on time so we didn't stop to enjoy. We did make it back a few days later for a beach party that was planned for the day after the wedding we were... More

Excellent large beach, with some shade. Wonderful bay and great for kids. Not much snorkeling in the area, water was very warm and color was great.
