Owner description: This rather remote beach is scenic and breathtaking with a mildly rugged coastline and perfect waters for swimming and snorkeling.

All the beaches on Vieques are amazing, but this was my absolute favorite, and all of my friends agreed. It was quite the bumpy ride to get to, but once you're there, man, it's impressive. It's a small (maybe a mile from one side to the other) cove with calm turquoise water and beautiful white sand. We were lucky enough to set up our blankets and cooler in a little cut out in the trees, and had a beautiful palm tree giving us shade. The view from this beach is priceless.

I read multiple reviews about how the walk to the beach is long and rocky. Let me fill you in: from the parking lot it's MAYBE 40 feet to the beach, and by rocky they must have meant stones. It's covered in stones no bigger than 3" each... We walked it very easily in flip flops while carrying coolers and beach chairs, no problem.

Alas, the beach is not a secret, but it was the emptiest of all the beaches we went to. We had maybe 10 other people on the beach at any given time, and not a soul was near us.

We are already planning our trip
back next year!

Quiet, tucked away beach that is off the beaten path. It never gets busy and there is fairly good snorkeling on either side, but I think it's a little better on the righthand end of the area.

Great beach. True to its name it is a small beach that usually does not see too many visitors. White soft sand, some great spots under palm treas. Also wonderful snorkeling along the left side, off towards the rocks. Our favorite beach in Vieques!

It's not a total secret that this beach is by far the prettiest on the island of Vieques. It's a snug little cove beach with calm waters, great for swimming and snorkeling (though we didn't see anything on our snorkel). We were the only souls on the beach for at least an hour before others showed up, but it never got crowded. Note that it's only accessible with a four-wheel drive vehicle and there is a short rocky path to walk through to get to the beach.

Calm water low wind-pretty views. Great for swimming no rocks.
Not to hard to find. Rent a jeep to get there-road a bit rocky.
