One of Vieques Great Beaches

There are so many GREAT beaches in Vieques. The day we visited Media Luna the water was a bit choppy but such a relaxing beach.

This is the best beach in Vieques for kids. The deepest part of the beach is perhaps knee length. No waves. It's just like in a swimming pool. There are places with tables but you want to be near the water and is best you bring an umbrella to protect you from the sun. It's kind of secluded since you... More

We only passed through on our way to Playa Navio but my teens loved seeing the wild horses nd calfs roaming along the beach and the shady wooded area the lines it. They aren't too skittish so you can walk nearby without scaring them.

Media Luna is part of the Sun Bay beach area (you have to pay $4/car to enter). It's farther off the beaten path... down some dirt roads. But it's a very pretty little stretch and worth the drive.

Rent a kayak for the day or a paddle board - the water is quiet and there's lots of room to play!!! Fun snorkeling too!

this beach is great, you can find some shade or laze in the calm shallow water with the fish! getting to it is a bumpy ride but its worth it! no bathrooms or civilization though so plan accordingly

Media Luna is a cool beach because it is shallow and really warm. You can go out a couple hundred feet before it gets deep so it's perfect for younger children or lazy, fat dudes that want to "rest" in clear, warm water. There are no facilities (Sun Bay is for you), but a unique, beautiful setting to spend a... More

Easy to get to. I used a publico to Sunbay and walked 15 minutes to get here. Bring water and snacks. Plenty of beach and shade available. Bay is shallow, great for the little ones

Nice protected beach a short walk (15min) past Sun Bay. A Favorite of the area, especially when Sun Bay has the waves up from the wind.

We checked it out but did't stay. It's very scenic but we wanted more of a swimming beach and the water stays shallow for quite a distance. Could be great for family with small children
