Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Caracas Beach

Caracas Beach
January 20th, 2015

In the US and in most parts of the world, beaches for tourists are commercialized attractions. For the most part the beach is packed, and vendors flock the area hoping to make some money from tourists. Sometimes you feel like you’re inside a busy mall except now you’re allowed to wear a skimpy beach attire.

In Puerto Rico, and especially in Isla de Vieques, you can easily escape that kind of atmosphere. You can just go to Caracas Beach just outside of town, and all is right with the world.

What to Expect

First of all, Caracas Beach is never really packed. That’s one thing you can really expect here. But it is seldom deserted either, so there are some people most of the time. If people-watching is one of your pastimes, then you won’t have to do without. For total seclusion, you can always come here early in the morning. Or you can just go further out to Blue Beach, where there will be fewer people. Here is a YouTube video showcasing some of the beauty of Caracas Beach.




But people-watching may take a backseat when you see the place, because Caracas Beach is truly lovely. The sand is smooth and white, and walking along the shore in your bare feet is such a delight. The water is also very clear, and wading in isn’t a problem because the water is quite warm.

The waves aren’t all that strong, so swimmers here will really enjoy themselves. Snorkeling is also nice and for beginner snorkelers, there are reefs to explore that are very close to the shore. The more adventurous can always go further out, especially to the back side of the island.

But for those who love the waves, there are some spots with nice waves for boogie boarding and bodysurfing.

Preparing for Your Trip to Caracas Beach

In some parts of the beach you may find canopy areas with tables. But that’s about it for facilities and shops. There are no showers or bathrooms, no shops or restaurants, no kiosks or vendors peddling their wares. So if you need a bathroom break, it’s pretty much a trip to the wilderness for you. This is the very reason why crowds here in Caracas Beach is a rare sight.

So if you’re going to Caracas Beach, you’ll need to bring your own toilet paper and perhaps your own trash bag as well. And you’ll also need to bring in just about everything you need for a day at the beach. It’s best if you have a rental car, because you’ll probably have to bring in a lot of stuff.

First you’ll need to make sure you have enough food and drinks. Not even the beauty of Caracas Beach will bring a smile to your face if you’re starving or parched. Then of course there’s the requisite sunscreen. You may not always find umbrellas and cover there, so consider bringing your own umbrella. And if you’re planning to explore the waters, bring own snorkeling gear as well.

Yet despite all the stuff you need to bring, once you get there you will immediately fall in love with the place. Despite the lack of facilities, the sand and the water are so inviting that you may find it hard to leave, and you’ll promise yourself you’ll come back.
