Secret Beach was really secret. On the drive through the National Refuge past Blue Beach there is a small road down a hill which most people will fail to see as they are on their journey towards La Plata Beach. This beach was narrow and secluded which was beautiful, but beware there was a ton of seaweed on the beach... More

This is a lovely little beach. It is a little inconvenient, as you need to park and walk down a steep embankment to reach it. Lots of mosquitos on that short walk. The beach itself is gorgeous, but there are tons of gorgeous beaches on the island that are a little more convenient. But worth the trouble if the main... More

I say Average, because for Vieques, you can do better! But it would be an amazing beach by any other standards. I just found it funny that in 5 days in Vieques, the ONLY beach that we ever saw other people was here on Secret Beach. Guess it's not so secret.

This beach is out of control... the contrast of walking through the forest and at the end find the amazing view it just unforgettable. Plus, you can be there by yourself, all that place is just for you!

My wife and I found this to be our favorite quiet, romantic beach for our 25th wedding anniversary. Great views and white sand all to ourselves!

Love this beach, second favorite to #10. It was a quiet time (early November) and we were totally alone. Just beautiful. Buggy late afternoon but totally worth it!

Secret Beach is a beautiful, quiet beach. It does require an almost half mile walk through the jungle from the parking lot to the water. Once there, there is a lot of seaweed on the beach and some in the water, but the shallow water and beautiful colors made it worth while. There is also some snorkeling on the edges... More

This beach has great waves and the water isn't freezing..it's clean and a good place to hunt for sea glass. It's family friendly...you may notice a lot of seaweed washed up on shore and a bit in the water. Of 7 people in our group, 4 were stung by tiny hydroid jellyfish (who apparently love to cling to seaweed). Most... More

Secret Beach is also called Pata Prieta (this is the name you'll see on all the signs) though it's not exactly secret. It just feels more secluded. Like all the beaches on the Caribbean side, the water is clear blue and the sand is soft white. Very pretty.
