I dont care too much for black sand, it just looks dirty to me or polluted. The trek to get there is interesting sand the beach itself is different. I think worth the experience but not a number one pick.

Look for Treesha B's review on how to find this place, they're perfect, near KM 7.0 on Route 201. This is a very easy hike unless you're on a wheelchair, 5-10 minutes from start to finish. You'll get some excellent pictures not only at the beach, but on your short trek there through the dried riverbed too, as there are lots of crabs, birds, horses, and other forest critters. The black sand is very thin. I was told afterwards that it is magnetic, so bring a magnet to test it out! Fun activity that doesn't take all day.

Great beach!! This was a tough beach to get to but worth it. The hike down the dry riverbed was pretty easy to traverse and the view that met us when we reached the beach was worth it. There really isn't much black sand left but that didn't trouble us. It was totally deserted - just me and my husband and a few horses walking down the beach. The sandy area was quite long which allowed us to take a nice walk. There were some dramatic cliffs which enhanced the view. Out of all the beaches we visited on Vieques, this was our favorite.

Black sand beach is by no means a beach you would spend the day swimming and soaking up sun, but it is a nice destination for a morning hike. It is a fun trip down the tropical dry creek bed with lots of lush plant life surrounding you. If you are into Geocaching, there is a cache in the area that is fun to find.

Hard to find make sure to turn by the gallery. It was a wonderful hike down a dried up river bed. This beach is very secluded and beautiful!! Wild horses ran right by us on the beach!! This beach was worth the search!!
