In Vieques, there are a few gorgeous beaches, Caracas (the Red Beach) of course being one of them. When we arrived on the island, the locals and tourists alike said that La Chiva (or the Blue Beach) is the best beach there is. I beg to differ. Indeed La Chiva is breathtaking but I think it creates more hype because it is more authentic and wild, so to speak (there are many spots where the sand is not white and is covered with lots of branches and what not); so in that sense it is a wild beach. Not to worry, Caracas and La Chiva, along with other beaches, are only a few minutes’ drive apart; so you will get to see all of them. Caracas beach is a Laguna with beautiful clear turquoise waters; it is calm, almost no waves and you have quite a few steps to move forward before the waters get deep. It is not a very lengthy beach but there aren’t very many people (even in season, as per locals) so you will find a beautiful spot with no problem. Caracas is the only beach in Vieques with parking; none of the beaches have vending machines nearby so bring food and lots of water with you. Relax and enjoy; it is really a gorgeous beach.
