  • Small little beach that you have walk down a path to get to. Be@ch is not a swimming beach because there are tons of rocks and you can’t really lay on the sand because there is not much room! If on...  more »
  • This one is a bit difficult to get to as there isn’t really any parking. The end of the road goes right to the water. When you pull onto the road that leads you to it, there are a few parking spots...  more »
  • Unless you're STUCK in Isabel Segunda without a car, I wouldn't really bother walking down to Sea Glass beach. If you insist, head down the main drag of town, STRAIGHT- do not turn toward the ferry...  more »
  • There's a reason it's called Sea Glass Beach, but this beach is also amazing for snorkeling! You want to go after a night of rain because it seems to clear everything up and leave the water extra clear. Although it was pretty clear each day I stayed right on this beach. If you locate the yellow/green house, you'll find what looks to be a sunken pier (the tree on the right of my photo blocks it). Snorkel around that area and you'll see tons of fish! It does seem shallow in some areas, but if you swim out a little, it gets better. Warning: we encountered 2 moon jellyfish here. I don't know if jellyfish are common here, but it's good to be conscious of since they just go with the flow. You'll also find lots of medium-small crabs along the beach and at the rocky area on the shore.
  • Not that a sandy beach. Close to everything. Crystal clear water. Few visitors so you can enjoy everything. You can find sea snails, crabs, fish, sea slugs and sea urchins around.
  • Good beach close to the ferry, but was not anything breathtaking. Tried to snorkel around the wrecked boat, but was frustrated with how murky the water seemed to be on the day we were there. A good place to go if you're just on the island for a few hours, but if you're here for a full day, I would recommend taking a taxi to another beach.
  • Very clear water, clean. Love it
  • Snorkeling on right and left sides of the beach is pretty decent, where the rocks are sticking out at low tide. Of course it is a city beach and there is some trash here and there, but on a calm day, when sand isn't stirred up and visibility is good, it is arguably the best snorkelling experience on Vieques accessible for free from the shore. Beach is easy walking distance from the ferry and the restoraunts located around the main street. There are nice shaded spots in the afternoon and sunsets are picturesque in the evenings.
