La Chiva, Isla de Vieques

4.7
#2 of 48 in Outdoors in Isla de Vieques
Take a trip down to La Chiva, a quiet and scenic stretch of coast looking out on the Caribbean Sea. The still, clear waters offer great conditions for swimming, particularly for those looking for a safe place to let children splash around. Colored an inviting blue, the waters complement the white stretch of sand, backed by palms and shrubs. The rocky areas of the water provide excellent snorkeling spots, so bring your gear to admire the schools of colorful tropical fish. Put La Chiva into our Isla de Vieques tour itinerary builder app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
