Top 5 beach of my life... Red Beach was incredible blue water waves powder white beach. Hidden gem in the Caribbean for sure. Get there early and bring food and charcoal like a local. People are friendly and it's freeeee! What a joy.

Really beautiful beach! It was almost completely secluded when we visited, with only two other people on the entire beach. Calm waters are great for swimming. Soft sand. The wild horses hang out in the park.

This little gem is easier to get to than most of the park beaches, right off of paved road. Has a large paved parking lot, with beach pavillions and grills. Calm water for small children and great snorkeling by rocks! Enjoy - our favorite spot.

It is a pretty beach, with an accesible entrance and parking compared to other beaches. It was kind of crowded and noisy but it very pretty.

All the beaches on Vieques are great for swimming, but our family loved Caracas "red" Beach the best for its wider stretch of sand, fun waves and horses grazing nearby.

You will need a vehicle or transportation to the beach as it is not in "town" but not necessarily a jeep. There are paved roads right up to the beach.
