Great place to snorkel or take a long walk

We visited Mosquito Pier several times and snorkeled it on the last day of our trip - fantastic snorkeling! We watched beautiful sunsets there as well and truly enjoyed the views!

You wouldn't swim here... you would however get an amazing view of the open ocean. You will drive down a road that will lead you to a pier.. on that road, there will be water on both sides of you, kind of exciting and scary all at once. Nice scenic drive. This wouldn't be a day trip, more like just... More

Had the chance to see lots of sea life from this pier including a sea turtle. The pier goes out about a mile and you can drive out and park walking to the very end where locals are fishing

We saw sea turtles and huge schools of fish under the pier. You must be a fairly good swimmer though because the water is very deep under the pier -- you can't see the bottom, so I guess it is 40 feet deep or more. The pier is worth visiting at least once while on Vieques

If you walk all the way to the end of the pier you will find locals fishing, and if you wait long enough you will likely see sea turtles surfacing. This is also a great location to snap pictures of the sunset and sunrise.

This was one of my favorite destinations for snorkeling on Vieques. On the left there is a small staircase to get into the water so it's a pretty easy place to enter. The snorkeling was great, and we even saw two hawksbill turtles right under the pier.

we went in the afternoon so the water was churned up a bit, maybe in the morning it'd be better. anyway, we didn't have a guide so just went to the drop in point near the pier. there's plenty fish to see around this area where it might get to 20 feet deep. we had a 10, 12 and 66... More

One of the best beaches we visited for snorkelling. The base has great areas to see fish nurseries and starfish, while the pier is were you'll see the larger fish and sea turtles. Do this!

We went to Mosquito Pier because we heard it was a good place to snorkel. There really wasn't a good place to enter the water so we didn't snorkel. From the cement pier we did see 2 sea turtles.

We just happened along Mosquito Pier as we were exploring the island. The US actually built it during WWII as an attempt to connect Vieques to the main island attempting to cut off passage, but they stopped at about a mile. The palm trees and open access give this stretch of land in the sea a surreal effect. When the... More
