One of the top three most beautiful balnearios in Puerto Rico…


Looking east of Sun Bay Beach – VIeques, Puerto Rico

This beach is the whole package…half moon shape, clear turquoise water, tall palm trees moving to the wind, lush tropical landscape.  Sun Bay is the most accessible and family-friendly beach since it offers a few facilities.  If you stay in Esperanza, it is an easy walk from Esperanza beach.  When you enter the parking lot, you’ll be greeted by Paso Fino horses that elegantly graze on the grounds.  The sand is soft with a light ivory color. Calm slow waves make Sun Bay a great beach for swimming and playing on the water.  During the winter months, the waves get a little more playful, the far east side stays calm and clear.  

Sun Bay Beach - Vieques, Puerto Rico
The scenery is worthy of a postcard, it’s a great beach to hang your hammock and forget all your cares.  From your lounge chair you can enjoy views of the offshore cays, Monte Pirata in the distance and sailboats gently swaying to the gentle Caribbean wind. The beach is naturally landscaped with coconut palm trees, Noni plants, and flowering trees. 

There is plenty of sand to claim a perfect spot under a tree, even on a “busy’ day there’s plenty of space for visitors without ever feeling crowded.
