Located at the far western end of Puerto Rico, this narrow beach gets high ratings for diving the offshore reef in 10 to 30 feet of water, which features sloping valleys and huge coral.

Amazing. We were the only ones at the beach. Very quite area. There is a small reef. Easy location kids to go snorkeling. Just make sure they don't touch the reef.

We loved this beach. It was a little difficult to find, but worth the effort. We found lots of beach glass. The view was beautiful and we had a great time swimming and snorkeling.

Untouched beach, if you are looking to relax and enjoy a tranquil water this is the place. Pack food and drinks, no need for an umbrella, plenty of trees for shade. A hidden gem!

Nice beach, and easy acess for snorkeling. Snorkle to the right for Turtles in the grass and left over the reef for rays, and an array of tropical fish including cuttle fish, and cool trunk fish. It is a 15 or 20 minute drive, but...More

The sand is a coarser than the other Vieques beaches, but the views and isolation are amazing. This is also a great snorkeling spot. We went for hours and saw some great fish as well as a friendly sea turtle that entertained us for a...More

We took our morning adventure to Green Beach - it was so beautiful and peaceful - very quiet. We were hoping to go back to snorkel, but there were so many places to snorkel that we didn't get back there. Road through the Wildlife Refuge...More
