Media Luna Beach

Media Luna Beach
January 20th, 2015

If you’re a pretty active person, then the beaches of Puerto Rico will be right up your alley. You’ve got lots of great beaches for surfing and all its variations, as the waves can swell up nicely and they can suit all levels of surfers.

Snorkeling and scuba diving can also be a treat. You’ve got coral reefs scattered in the area, while shipwrecks dot many shores for the more adventurous divers. The marine life here is pretty diverse, and their numbers can really add up.

You’ll need to dive with a good camera, because the explosions of colors can be fantastic and you’ll need photos to drive your friends back home to the heights of envy.

But sometimes you just need to relax. That’s not always easy to do, especially when you brought your family along. If you have small kids with you, you’ll always need to worry about strong currents, rough waves, and hard rocks and coral on the sea bottom.

Or you can just head on out to Media Luna Beach, where relaxing and getting a suntan is the order of the day.




Getting to Media Luna Beach

Media Luna Beach is in Isla de Vieques, so it’s not really hard to get there. You’ll need a sturdy Jeep though as the road is filled with potholes. Lucky for you, it doesn’t take more than 5 minutes of travel to get there from Sun Bay Beach.

But the potholes do have one redeeming feature. It discourages many others to check out the place, and that means it’s very easy to find the beach deserted which is perfect if you’re looking for privacy and tranquility.

The Attractions in Media Luna Beach

Is it pretty here? Sure it is. The beach is shaped like a half-moon, which explains its name. There’s a bit more sea-grass here, but in reality that’s not a big deal. Most people who come here just fall in love with the place. In fact, no one who visits Media Luna Beach ever regrets the experience.

But if you have toddlers and small kids with you, then this beach is probably going to be your all-time favorite. That’s because the sand is nice and the water is shallow and calm. You can wade out up to 50 feet from the shore and the water is still going to be just a foot deep. There’s a rope marker ahead to tell you where the water gets deeper.

You can also wade in yourself, as the experience of getting your feet wet here is quite nice. To add to its charm, you’ll often find lots of fish swimming near you. Those fish will probably intrigue your little ones as well. They’re easy enough to see, as the water is very clear.

When you want to get out of the sun, you have lots of shade and you can just go hang out in a gazebo. Grab a cool drink in the shade while the little kids have fun. No worries for you here at all. Now that’s relaxing indeed.
