I hate to review this beach because it's so beautiful, and deserted and I don't want people to find out how great it is. We went during the low season, which might have accounted for how quiet it was. It is located in a national park and had good parking spots at the edge of the beach. Nice palm trees... More

What a great beach! Endless gorgeous sand, shallow areas for the little kids, snorkeling for the older ones, so beautiful! Not much shade, so definitely bring an umbrella or pop up tent for cover. Lots of angel fish in water. Watch for trumpetfish and others there too! The parking spots are numbered: 1&2 are less sandy areas, rest are great!... More

Perhaps our favorite Vieques beach - and that's saying something - Playa La Chiva, or Blue Beach, in simply breathtaking. The various hues of blue are simply stunning, and there are palms galore to shade you from the intnse sun. There are man-made shelters, too, with picnic tables, but they're on the inland side of the beach, so they don't... More

Beautiful beach for swimming and bobbing in the waves. Colors are amazing, water is warm and sand is white, powdery and fine. We spent several hours here lost in the colors.

This is one of the several beautiful beaches that Vieques has to offer. Not crowded on the weekday. The only way these beaches stay so beautiful is if they are protected. Try Blue Lizard sunscreen - it protects you and the environment (and it goes a long way so the $$ is worth it). Bring waters, food and snacks because... More

This beach is a favorite of our family. The long stretch of turquoise water over pristine and rock-free white sand is a postcard all by itself. The shallow water near the beach is a vast area for wading and bathing. There are usually no waves or at least no breakers, so it's great for kids. My 6 year-old great nephew... More

This beach has everything, and even decent snorkelling if you go to the right place. Drive to entry 10 or 11. Empty you car and have someone stay on the beach with your stuff. Walk or snorkel the sand bar and then straight across the sea grass covered channel to the islet off shore. Shortest route to decent snorkelling is... More

We had this beach to ourselves our last morning on vieques. Spot #10. Your own Palm trees for shade. Swim in waist deep water to reef area at right side of the little island.

We enjoyed snorkeling around the islet just off the coast. Like many places in the Caribbean the sea grass in encroaching on the coral but we still saw quite a bit of fish. The sand and the shells were a delight for the kids. There are a number of thorns stuck in the sand (at least at this time of... More

Great beach! Very shadow waters. Water is clear and warm. No food establishments nearby, so pack food and please don't liter. 15 minute drive from the W hotel. Highly recommended and a must see.
