  • My husband, dog, and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon on the pier. While walking out, we saw lots of fish and a beautiful turtle. We'd hoped to see more turtles. Many locals come to fish off the pier.....  more »
  • This mile long pier used to be home to Navy warships. Now used as place to fish and snorkel and catch the breeze. Stupendous views of the PR mountains.
  • Don’t was a little cloudy during the day we went here but was able to see the best snorkeling right here. Beds of Sea urchins,lots Tropical fish - crystal clear water.
  • Vieques is our destination every year!! The best vacation!! We love to take the roads less travelled!! On a golf cart or in a vehicle....... lots of carrots on board for the wild horses we see every day!! The breathtaking beaches and torquoise blue water are perfect no matter what part of the island you visit. Snorkeling is amazing. The most colorful fish, sea urchins, beautiful seashells and we swam with a baby sea turtle!! The people are friendly and always point out a new place to go. The local restaurants are great....... never disappointed!! And then theres the rum!! PUERTO RICO IS IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER!! β€πŸ‘πŸΌπŸŒ΄πŸŒž
  • Watch the sunset. Snorkel under the pier. Hang out on the beaches next to it.
  • The view from the end was good. But the wind was pretty strong.
