Best snorkeling on the island and more tropical fish than you can count. Swimming out just a few hundred feet leads you to reefs with coves housing 50-60 colorful fish in one place. Incredible! You can even find schools of little fish in knee-deep water. We brought beach chairs to keep off the sand and had no problem with bugs.... More

Beautiful but buggy as always. Good for snorkeling but gotta get off the beach by the afternoon or get eaten by the bugs

We hit Green Beach early- the locals said to be done by 3 because of the bugs (no-see-ums) are out after that. The bugs were a little bothersome, but the snorkeling was good. We had kids with us, ages 8, 12 and 15 and felt very comfortable letting them snorkel by themselves. There was very little surf and sea grass/reef... More

It takes more effort to get to this beach but it is worth every giant pothole in the gravel road. When we arrived there were several giant yachts anchored offshore so we knew this had to be good. My family enjoys snorkeling and there is an outcropping of rocks where the fish are and there are also a lot of... More

By far the best beach on Vieques! The trick is knowing the layout of the beach from top to bottom. People either love Punta Arenas or hate it for the simple fact of not researching the beach. I found my way around by using the information on viequesbeachbums.blogspot.com for getting around the island and they have awesome pictures of Vieques.

This was a hard beach to find a good spot on. One of the places we initially ended up had us not wanting to be in the area as it warned of an underwater sea cable. We went to the other end of the beach via the poorly-kept access road. We found a nice point in which to access the... More

An adventure to find but what a beauty...the most intrepid of our group decided to have one last beach day and we stumbled upon this beautiful little bay. Clear waters, great temperature, wonderful view of PR and we had it all to ourselves!

This was our favorite beach on Vieques, due to a balance of beautiful sandy areas, palm trees for shade, and great snorkeling. When you arrive at the beach there is an informational sign and a small parking lot. If you stop there and use that launch point, the snorkeling area is to the left. If you follow the road to...

We got to this beach based on reviews from other travelers. The beach is nice but we got there close to about 5pm and while there was still light out, we were among perhaps one other family there. We didn't stay past 6mins or so because the mosquitos were literally out in bunches. I wasn't really all that impressed by... More

A kind of shallow snorkeling spot, and a rocky, jostling drive, but beautiful, with a view of the southeast coast of mainland Puerto Rico and great snorkeling. During my trip, I saw an octopus, tons of fish, and even found a few great little empty conch shells. Worth the drive!
