If you are staying in Vieques, I do recommend this beach for snorkeling. It is remote for a car to get to. It is also challenging for families with children or cautious swimmers because there are dangerously spiny sea urchins near the beach so getting...More

Amazing. We were the only ones at the beach. Very quite area. There is a small reef. Easy location kids to go snorkeling. Just make sure they don't touch the reef.

We loved this beach. It was a little difficult to find, but worth the effort. We found lots of beach glass. The view was beautiful and we had a great time swimming and snorkeling.

My family of four just returned from a week in Vieques, PR. We snorkeled every day while on the island. Green Beach (Punta Arenas) is a great spot to begin learning to snorkel. It is a rough muddy road to get there but a beautiful...More

Untouched beach, if you are looking to relax and enjoy a tranquil water this is the place. Pack food and drinks, no need for an umbrella, plenty of trees for shade. A hidden gem!

Vieques has a number of beaches to choose from, but Green Beach has been our favorite since 2004. You will need a Jeep to get to most of the beaches including this one. Please do not leave anything valuable in the Jeep - there is...More

Vieques has no shortage of great beaches, and Green Beach is no exception. Great for lazing on the beach and swimming. Snorkeling is good, but the biting flies will tear you up, even with bug repellent.

Punta Arenas or Green Beach is at the western most end of the island. It's a bit of a drive over some rough roads but definitely worth the trip. SUV'S no problem, may be difficult with a low vehicle/car. Take Route 200 past Mosquito Pier...More
