The beaches on Vieques have distinctive personalities. Visit Blue Beach for calm, gentle surf that’s best for snorkeling. Red Beach is the most popular spot for people-watching, socializing, and unobstructed views of the vast sea. Enjoy romantic scenery at the small, crescent-shaped Secret Beach, which is protected by dramatic rocks and a quiet cove.
