“Not the best beach”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

This beach is only okay as compared to other beaches on Vieques. Takes a long time to get there, although the road is better than some of the other beach roads. There were several large boats taking up the beach area.

“Green Beach”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

The best reef snorkeling on the island. Park in the center which offers the most spots. Enter from the sand beach and snorkel from there and towards the left.

“Great place to relax, ok snorkeling”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Drive to the further access points to get away from the crowds. There are usually boats from the mainland that come over and dock 10-20 feet off shore as well. Nice beach. Most of the reef is not too exciting, but you will see more stingrays and turtles here than at other beaches with a healthier reef.

“Meandering beach with good snorkeling!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The drive to Green beach is unique to many other beaches on Vieques, which adds to the fun. The beach is shallow, lined with palms and very picturesque. We found the area that we were at (towards the western end) to be somewhat stony, with great snorkeling!

“Great for snorkeling”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Quite a schlep to get there, but once there you might find your self completely alone, which is what you want! Great for snorkeling, so bring your gear.
