Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Blue Beach

Blue Beach
February 27th, 2015

Blue Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Vieques, and no, you won’t feel blue here at all. While the local name of the place is Playa Chiva or simply La Chiva, the Navy boys who used to stay on the island named it Blue Beach because the place shines with various hues of blue. When you get there, you won’t believe how pretty it is when you’ve got these shades of blue in a natural setting.

Getting to Blue Bleach

First you’ll need to reach Vieques. You can take a ferry from Fajardo, but you should remember that you can’t take your San Juan rental car on board the ferry with you.

You can also take a short flight from San Juan International Airport (SJU) and Isla Grande Airport (SIG) in San Juan or from the Ceiba International Airport if you’re coming from the east coast.

Once you arrive in Vieques, the first thing you’ll need to get if you plan on going to a beach right away is to rent a Jeep with a high clearance and 4-wheel drive. The roads to the beaches aren’t what you would call smooth highways.

For Blue Beach, the parking is somewhat limited so you may want to go there early. The beach entry points are assigned with numbers, and for the best areas go to #7 to #15.

There are no facilities in Blue Beach, so make sure you bring all your provisions including your towels, suntan lotions, and food and drinks. You may be lucky enough to get a gazebo with a picnic table. Just make sure you dispose of all your trash properly by throwing them in the trash bins.

What to Do in Blue Beach

This is a very long beach, so it’s not hard at all to find the perfect spot for you and your group. You may want to pick a spot in the shade. It’s rarely crowded, so you can find some peace and quiet.

Because of the size of the place, sooner or later you may want to go exploring. Walking along the beach can be an adventure, but because of the length of the shore you may want to keep it short so you know you’ll still have the energy to get back.

But the water is truly great. The temperature is just right, about as warm as bath water so the kids will love it. There are lots of shallow parts too, and the water is very calm. And the best part of it all is that the water is very clear, so even when you walk in the shallow parts you can see lots of schools of fish around you. For swimmers, the best areas are near the #7 entrance.

The clear waters is the very reason why snorkeling here is a very popular pastime. There are stingrays and sea turtles here and there. Sea fans are plentiful too. For snorkeling, try to get the areas near the #10 entrance. These are the areas near the points and rocks.

After just a single visit, chances are you’ll become a fan of Blue Beach as well.
