We only visited a few beaches during our Vieques visit but we liked this one the best. We visited in June (the off-season) and had no trouble getting there or getting parking. It's a lovely curved beach and there wasn't any seaweed washed up on shore like there was at Sun Bay and the others. The sand was soft and... More

Wow. You haven't seen a beach until you've been to Vieques, PR! Playa Caracas was absolutely stunning! It was calm atmosphere with a refreshing beach. The sand was white and the water was blue and green. The beach was clean and well maintained. We stayed out there by a palm tree the entire day. Also great people around!

This is the same location as "Red Beach" and Caracas Beach. Just FYI. It's the best beach on the island in my opinion. The best water and seaweed free sands. Just magical and super relaxing.

Caracas is maybe the best beach to hang around in Vieques since there is not algae as there is in some of the other beaches. As many other beaches in Vieques you start to see people after 1030 or 1100am. Plenty of parking space

Playa Caracas or Red Beach is a beautiful. Very open and really easy to find. Me and my Wife enjoy almost a whole day in the beach. Although our favorite beach is La Chiva/Blue Beach Playa Caracas is great too.

This beach was really cool, not to hard to get to like some of the beaches on vieques, and the waves were really good for bodysurfing.

LOVED it. Love Vieques. You can drive right up to it and have it all to yourself. Simply amazing. Great snorkeling all along the beaches. You can beach hop up and down the beaches and get a unique experience at each one.

This was a beautifully protected beach with shelters, white sand, and warm ocean water! This was my favorite beach to visit because it wasn't over-crowded and we found many of the locals go to that beach as well. There was also ample parking. We stayed for about 5 hours and got a perfect golden brown tan. Enjoy!

Beautiful, wide and protected.....not too many people, easy to get to - lovely. This is a favorite of many people we talked to. Not a snorkel beach but great for swimming and lounging

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.
