Green Beach, Isla de Vieques

(3.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Coast over a reef and undersea cliffs when you snorkel in the calm waters along Green Beach. This small beach has a short sandy stretch with palm trees lining the back of it. Right off the beach you'll find a reef, some short cliffs, and some man-made items that the marine life has adapted to, each of these makes for good snorkeling sites. Be careful entering the water, as small red urchins sit on the rocks and can pierce flippers. Also be sure to apply sunscreen and bug spray before going to the beach--many travelers complain of sand fleas.

  • We love snorkeling here and always see a great variety of sea life. Head out straight from the beach then turn left toward the rocks and go along the rocks until you get to the next beach.  more »
  • Gorgeous beach. The snorkeling was good - a ray, hundreds of conch leaving sand trails on the ocean floor, sometimes turtles. It's on the west end so it's protected from the east trade winds.  more »
