This appropriately-named beach, curving like a half moon, is shallow enough to walk out 40 feet.

Nice beach with clear water. This area does not seem to have a breeze like many of the other beaches but still a cute beach to visit especially if you have young children. There were lots of clear fish to watch swim around you.

Once of the many beaches on Vieques but certainly not the best. If your staying in Esperanza then it's walkable and makes a change from the local beach.

It is a small beach, that forms a half moon shaped bay. No waves at all, really good if you go with small children. The sand was so fine, that there were some people using it as exfoliant.

We noticed this is a great beach for children as it is sheltered and has little waves. Really private if you're looking for a romantic experience. Second clearest water on the Caribbean side.

It's a really nice and a little isolated beach. It's not as big and you might be the only person there if it happens. The water is clean and doesn't go deep very quickly so it's suitable for children. The beach has no shops or...More

Media Luna is a very calm beach. A nice place to bring the family. Lots of shade. Lots of sand. Getting here is a little rough and if it has been raining, it can be muddy. Just about a kilometer passed Sun Bay. I personally...More

We were very careful but thieves stole our bags right behind our backs while we sat on the beach. Very brazen. One of us was running and almost ran up on them in the act. They dropped bags and disappeared into the jungle. Stole $20...More

Shallow dirty waters, poky seaweed, it was pretty, but that's all. Waters are not clear. Go to Caracas beach!!!

There are so many GREAT beaches in Vieques. The day we visited Media Luna the water was a bit choppy but such a relaxing beach.

Can you walk from Media Luna to Navio beach?

You could, but it would be a very unpleasant walk. Rugged road and it's hot. But if you're up for the trek with proper shoes and plenty to drink, you could walk it.
