Welcome to our Vieques Beach Directory. We are striving here to give our personal presentation of the amazing beaches that Vieques has to offer. Note that this is ALL post-hurricane-María - the pictures and descriptions are real, taken from 2018 and after so nobody gets deceived by old, pre-storm pics. Vieques beaches are all-natural and as such, things literally change with the winds and the tides. We will update this part of the site as they do, and continue to add more beaches and pictures when we can.
But first, a request from those of us who love Vieques and its beaches: please do your part to keep the beaches & island clean. The beaches don’t clean themselves - real people like us clean them, sometimes in groups and sometimes we just do it when we visit the beach. Please pick up your own trash. If you want to be a hero, pick up an extra bit of trash as you leave, even if it is just a single plastic bag or a beer can. Thank you so much for your help! (PS. You can do this on any beach you visit, worldwide!)
If you need another reason to pick up trash, here's one: it harms our friendly sea turtles! In Vieques, there are three major turtle species: Tinglar (Leatherback), Carey (Hawksbill), & Verde (Green), all wonderful in their own right. The turtle nesting seasons run from March through September. So in addition to trash pickup, please stay clear of the nests, hatchlings, and nesting females. We thank you, and the turtles thank you! Please visit one of our favorite groups of people, Ticatove, for more information.
