A friend and I visited Pata Prieta beach in mid-Feb. There were only 5-10 other people on the beach. Very peaceful and a few shade trees. I tried snorkeling but there wasn't anything to see. This is a beach to relax on and swim a...More
This beach is also called Playa Pata Prieta. The entrance to the water is not steep. Calm water. I tried snorkelling on the left side but didn't see any fish. Nice beach for walking. No public facilities, but some shady trees.
The place is pretty overcrowded, even in the low season. The drive is bumpy and almost impossible for some island cars. When you finally reach the parking area, its probably so crowded it'll be like trying to shove an elephant into a very small box....More

Four Day Trip Report (3 Replies)
Just returned from a four day trip to Vieques. Here are a few highlights. 1. Lodging - four of us (two couples) stayed in two casitas on the Atlantic side near the W.

Downside was that the Atlantic side was quite windy while we were visiting compared to Caribbean side. 2.

Hi, Dusty; Thanks for popping back here with your report! Sounds like you hit a lot of the highlights in 4 short days. Re: your point #4, it's too bad some folks don't know about the forum. Even if one doesn't participate, just reading & researching current & past posts can give one TONS of valuable info. Hope you'll be back!

Take the main camp Garcia road past the turn for Red Beach. About a mile or so past Red Beach you'll see a road on the right with a blue trash barrel. Turn there and follow it down to Secret Beach.
