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.

This was my favorite of the beaches. Again we got here around 9am and were the only ones on the beach except for wild horses. So peaceful it's erie. Water was calm without rocks in the ocean floor. Picture perfect.

One of my favorite spots in Vieques , beautiful water , sand and they also have areas for camping , you can also go thru Sunbay beach to get to the bioluminicent bay areas as well as to media luna beach and Navio. There's a fee to go in with a vehicle but it's worth it because you get to... More

One of our favorite beaches. The beach is a long beach and absolutely beautiful. What makes it even better are the palm trees located all over that provide great shade during the heat of the day and the fact you can park your car right behind where you are on the beach. Also, near the entrance are restrooms and an... More

I was at first a little turned off by the fact that this beach is on a park, with everything that comes with that (lifeguard stalls, parking lot, etc.) However, it seemed (at least while we were there) that the lifeguards were no where to be found and during the week, we had the place mostly to ourselves. The beach... More

This beach had more people at it than the others but the water was more calm and relaxing. You could just float around all day!

It's nice and close to the downtown area, but it cannot be compared with either red or blue beach. Quite noisy. Water is not so clear because it was quite windy around that area. I did see so many wild fishes though.

This lovely stretch of beach was mostly deserted; we felt like we had the entire mile long crescent shaped piece of heaven to ourselves. The water was beautiful, Took pictures of my teenagers under a curved palm and it looked like a Victoria Secret Swimsuit Photo shoot it was so picturesque. We pulled our rental car right up to beach... More

Sun bay is just beautiful, watch your step going in as there is a natural sand bank but then it's great...best to have a special picnic catered or on your own, lot's of space for large groups....I just love it here, so scenic !
