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.

First let me say just came back from my first trip to Puerto Rico and i fell in love with the island!! Vieques really has nothing to envy from Culebra, cause that is all everyone talks about but let me tell you Playa Caracas was amazing. Nice paved road to get in then all you see is the clear teal...

Long stretch of beautiful beach with almost no one ever there ! Calm waves with powder sand.....perfect for swimming and snorkling. One of the best beaches in Vieques.

Of the beaches that were available while we were there, this was my favorite there was a cabana and the snorkeling was pretty okay. Water was clear and very warm.The waves were very low making it easy to snorkel

Beautiful teal water . Clear and clean. A perfect beach. Has tables and palapas at one end . White sand soft and powdery. Depending on weather can be waves or just clam . great beach for families

Drive right up to a beach hut with a bench (forget about it on the weekends), and you have a large beach with good sand and some wave action on the corners. Popular with the locals on the weekends.

Beautiful beach, light surf. Fairly easy to get to... some of the other beaches along this way are easier accessed by a jeep. Highly recommend it families... bring an umbrella, not a lot of shade!

You really can't go wrong with any of the beaches on Vieques in our opinion. This one is very easy to get to, but it was also one of the busiest we visited on a Saturday during the summer. We decided not to stay long since it was so busy, but kept going to Playa Priata which was smaller and... More

This beach is surreal - the sands are white and soft and there are at least 5 shades of blue in any direction you look at :) Get in early to catch a cabana, or find a tree - but you WILL need the shade, because you won't be able to spend less than a day out there :D

The water looks like liquid glass. The sand is fine and white. The beach is the most crowded you will find on Vieques. If you are a park and drag a ton of crap to the beach, this is your place. Too many people for us.
