  • The eastern part of the small island of Vieques is a wonderful wildlife refuge with arguably the best beaches in the entire island and Puerto Rico itself. Soft white sand beaches with few people to crowd you out. There are wild horses through the preserve as well as colorful bids. Like most everything in Vieques, you will need to rent a car to get to this part of the island.
  • Las mejores playas
  • Beautiful beaches but roads to most are not well maintained. Jeeps are recommended. Quiet during week but somewhat crowded on weekends. Great area for "beach hopping".
  • Best beaches! Beautiful place! Perfecto para la familia!
  • Absolutely gorgeous beaches. Just go. Just go now. You will not regret it. Just make sure you're out before the automatic closes at night. Lol
