Choose from a number of beautiful beaches, each with it's own unique characteristics. This was the highlight of our trip.

In general my trip to Vieques was disappointing. Getting gasoline for a car required hours of waiting. Going to the beaches we were warned to leave the car windows open and leave nothing inside - theft was common. While the beaches were beautiful, on the beach you had to guard your belongings. One person stood guard while the other went... More

The beaches were a little cleaner than some of the others on Vieques, a little more crowded at the first couple beaches you come to, and a little rougher surf than Green or Mosquito peir which had much better snorkeling.

There are a variety of beaches in the wildlife refuge, each with its own appeal. whether you like seclusion or prefer people, like waves or calm water, snorkling, or just sunbathing, you can find your perfect spot. Just driving along the road to end of Bahia La Chiva is a must do for the beautiful views.

Most of the island is the Wildlife refuge. I would suggest renting a car and exploring new places. Beautiful Place.

Most of Vieques consists of this refuge. Flora, fauna and beaches of unsurpassed beauty create an resource of unlimited value for Vieques ! Rent a jeep, experience the rough terrain and bumpy roads. Can't beat the experience ! B&B

If you like horses, and beaches and rain forest this is a wonderful place to come. My family came and spent the summer and we enjoyed each day we were here.
