Mosquito Pier, Isla de Vieques

From the end of Mosquito Pier look back to stunning views of Viques and the Puerto Rican mainland. Built in 1941, the pier stretches out a mile off the coast, with deep tan, golden sand beaches and vibrant blue waters flanking each side. Snorkel with sea turtles, who often appear in the waters underneath and around the pier. Take a relaxing turn along the pier, then pop your scuba gear on and enjoy the excellent snorkelling conditions.

  • Great views of the big island. Snorkeling is rest for turtles. Local people love fishing here. I enjoy it at sunset. There are always turtles out under the pier.  more »
  • We stopped at Mosquito Pier after seeing the 375 year old Ceiba Tree. It was a rainy morning and we didn't feel like climbing in to snorkel but we could tell the snorkeling there would be awesome.  more »
  • My family went to Vieques earlier this summer. We got the opportunity to snorkel every day for eight days! One great spot to dive or snorkel is the old navy pier, Mosquito Pier, or Rampeolas. If you f...  more »

  • Make sure you arrange the transportation since is a remote area. Most cellphone don't work. Make sure you study the wind direction. Usually the left side towards the west is the best spot to see sea turtles and at the beginning you can appreaciate the little and vulnerable startfish and sea cucumbers.
  • Pier drops down to about forty feet with lots of amazing life underwater. Neat diving and snorkeling spot.
  • In A Nutshell: -The Mosquito Pier is located close to the airport. -You will fly over it if you decide to take a plane to get to Vieques Island. -When you drive to Mosquito Pier, you will see a large sign that says, "MOSQUITOS" (see pic below). -After passing the sign, you will approach a small park, which has a really cool looking tree. -Don't be surprised if you see a lot of wild horses roaming around (just like the rest of this super-awesome island). -There is a beautiful secluded beach that no-one was on near the park, jump in! -Keep going down the road and take the first right and you'll end up driving towards and onto Mosquito Pier. -Nothing too special about Mosquito Pier. Drive it all the way down and take some photos. Overall, this a good place to go if you want a very quiet place to have a picnic and there was an area w/ calm water where we saw people snorkel.
  • Great place for snorkeling and diving with amazing marine life. Explore it!
  • Went snorkeling here and saw a ton of fished near the tip of the pier. Also saw a sea turtle! It was an awesome experience.
