This beach is also called Playa Pata Prieta. The entrance to the water is not steep. Calm water. I tried snorkelling on the left side but didn't see any fish. Nice beach for walking. No public facilities, but some shady trees.

Nice but watch for a drop off right by the life guard station. Plenty of picnic tables and shade. Locals selling their wares along the road.

Vieques has no shortage of great beaches, and Secret Beach is no exception. Great for lazing on the beach and swimming. Snorkeling is just OK.

The water is really warm and clean. There were about a dozen people on the beach which left plenty of room to set up our umbrella. There is a long strip of seaweed that runs the length of the beach. This beach is good for...More
