Pretty beach, but too rough waves for us to go in, much preferred other beaches in Vieques. It was neat how you could park in the little bays and have an area all to yourself.

Playa Caracas was our favorite beach of the trip! It was so relaxing and fun to watch people. The waves are great to play in - or go futher out and float in the crystal blue water.

AKA Red Beach, this beach is pristine! Off white fine sand, shallow calm waters. There's a little bit of snorkeling on the left side of the beach. A little bit of coral but mostly just a short seaweed. We did get to see some pretty cool fish though. Little to no shade and the gazebos are all taken early so... More

Beautiful beach, considerably high concentration of salt in the water, compared to other beaches. There is a beautiful set of rocks at the end of the beach stretch that made for a cool photo opp.

I hesitate to share because I don't ever want it to become too crowded. The only thing it lacks is limited shade to relieve you from the hot sun. There are 6-8 pavilions but they're usually taken by 11 a.m. Only toilet is one port-o-let but it's not too bad. No food or drink vendors, so be sure bring what... More

A beautiful beach! It was perfect for spending the day & relaxing! They even have gazebos, so you can ward off from the sun or just chill out of the water for a bit. :)

No crowds, white sand, paradise. The water is gin-clear and warm, the surf gentle with the occasional breakers. Snorkeling nearby. Our favorite on an island with plenty of options.

Great view, but no facility there. You`d better bring your own food and beverage. As other tropical beach with a close bush/grass field, many mosquitos after sunset.
