Playa La Chiva #3


Alternate name:
Blue Beach (Navy name)
Good for:

Bathroom at #4 and another one on the main road before it turns to gravel
Sand Type/Color:
No sand, only sharp rocks
Water Quality: 
The water is usually crystal clear and beautiful.

La Chiva is a very long southside beach accessed off Route 997. Enter the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge at Garcia Gate and drive straight until the road changes to gravel, then drive some more. Eventually, the road will fork to the right and come up over a rise where you will see the water and the numbered signs on the right, starting with #1. These are entrance points for parking and access to the beaches. Find one that suits you and enjoy.

Not really a beach, #3 is a very rocky shoreline, only suitable for fishing (if you can keep your hook out of the rocks). The views of the Cayo and La Chiva’s sandy beaches are beautiful though.

There is no shade here so plan accordingly.
