Most likely it will be just you! That alone is worth it on this westernmost beach in Vieques. We went by boat and that is highly recommended!

There is hardly any sand on this beach, which take a while to get to because of the long road leading to it that is not in great condition. But we were rewarded with perfect snorkeling conditions and saw some fun stuff snorkeling just a short way off the beach.

It takes a long and winding road to get to the Green Beach. It is also very bumpy. As such the beach is very secluded. (There was only one other car there when we went). The sandy beach is small but not far from it is superb snorkeling in beautiful turquoise water with a backdrop of the Puerto Rico Mainland.... More

It takes a bit to get to Green Beach, but stick with it, it is worth it. You take the highway out passed the airport and Mosquito Pier and just keep heading west....the pavement turns to gravel/mud and eventually you come to a T. Go left and you are soon there. The beach itself is not that wide, but there... More

Don't let the bad road keep you from here. Get a jeep and Head out 200 to the park sign and go left. 3rd or 4th pull off on the right and you are set. It's the pull off after the covered area on the right. Keep going for more beaches, etc. There are drop offs and coral formations about... More

Visited Green Beach yesterday and very glad we did. Jeep makes the trip easier, but we saw another couple in a Kia Soul. When you get to the sign I've attached, turn left. If you go to the right, you'll end up at a power station and there's no swimming there. After you make the left turn, we went to... More

The roads to green beach are a disaster, be prepared for very bad roads. There is very little beach, but we did get into the water and found lots of conch shells.

Punta Arenas is beautiful, but would not be my first choice. That said, beaches come in so many different "flavors" it's really just personal preference. If you're looking for fine white sand, wide beach and turquoise water, there are lots of places on Vieques to find that...this is not that beach.

This beach is at the very end of the island of Vieques and it's a little drive getting to it. We were the only ones there. It has great snorkeling and diving if that is what you are looking for. Also the beach is that beautiful golden sand with many palm trees. There is absolutely nothing around for miles so... More

Hidden Beach on the north-western side of Vieques Island, Puerto Rico. After swimming in the clear blue water you can explore the many trails and historic sites on that side of the island.
