Overall: This is a beautiful beach that we basically had to ourselves. Worth making it a destination. Access: This is one of those Vieques beaches that is fairly remote, accessible only by a poorly-maintained gravel/sand road through the woods. We did it in a minivan so you certainly don't always need a Jeep to get there, but I would be... More

Getting here is fun, and if driving in on the road you will need a jeep for sure. This beach ,as are many beaches in vieques, is beautiful. There is a cave that you can sometimes see wildlife. The surf is strong at Navio beach.

This is a neat beach, it's a little remote, you probably want to have a 4x4 to get here but, it's worth it. There's a cool little cave on the East end of the beach and some underwater caves around the point further to the East (a cool snorkeling /shore dive spot) Like all remote beaches: watch your gear, I...

Definitely one of my favorite two beaches on the island. Water is crystal clear and aqua blue. Unlike othe beaches Navio has waves (small waves). A few places for shade, but better to bring an umbrella. It is a small beach blocked in by rocks at cliffs at either end. This is quiet and secluded. Get to it by driving... More

This is an incredible beach and if you can get there (jeep, scooter, UTV) it is well worth it. We got robbed though - only $50 but still sucked. Don't bring a lot of stuff and keep it close to you!!

It takes a bit to get here, but it is a beautiful beach. You take a dirt/gravel road for a couple kilometers passed Sun Bay. It gets a bit rough and after a rain the depressions fill with water so it is best to have a four wheel drive to get here. The remoteness means that sometimes you will have... More

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
