Even in our jeep, we could not navigate the road. The potholes were 4 feet deep. I ran ahead to see the beach but it was rough for snorkling so we turned around. We stopped at the closest beach Media Luna and got robbed. Not a good day at the beach! Our friends recommended the beach and it was pretty

First of all, it you don't have a jeep, you would have to walk to get to it, other car is not suitable to drive that path, you will ruin the car. The beach was beautiful. However it said no swimming, not sure why, everyone was swimming, so we did too. Water wasn't clear and BE AWARE of the robbers.... More

One of our FAVORITE beaches in Vieques. Calm, peaceful and quiet. Great for swimming, relaxing, hanging a hammock and just taking in everything Vieques has to offer.

This beach was hard to get to but amazing and worth the effort. It's about 3 mile walk from the Malecon. If you rent a jeep, you can get to Media Luna (a pleasant place in itself) and walk the last mile. If you take a taxi ($5/head regardless of distance) you'll still have to walk 2 miles. The trail...

The beach was beautiful. It has a couple of caves around the edge of the rocks. Water was clear and beautiful but had a strong current. It could be dangerous for small kids or non swimmers. The roads to get there are through the Sun Bay Beach. The road had a lot of holes and the branches of the trees... More

Amaziiing view. Not really for hikes but do explore as much as posible to the public. Everything was clean, so if you visit keep our beaches clean please.

You must have an umbrella or you will burn and you can't really swim at Navio because the waves and current are rough. This isn't a place to take the family. This is a place to take an umbrella, sit read a book and just stick your feet in the water.

Place: This is the thrilling beach, I think the most 'exciting' beach Vieques has in terms of its waves, drive, turtle nests' and poor parking space. It is BEAUTIFUL but not swimmable, at least my opinion by the amount and strength of the waves that were coming at us. I was sooo sad to resign myself not to get in... More

We enjoyed Navio. We visited as many beaches as we could on the island, but my teenagers wanted to go back to Navio for the wave action!
