Life’s a Beach

Vieques Island is not a large tourist destination compared to many Caribbean Islands. That means the beaches here are uncrowded and often you will have an entire beach to yourself.

In the South side Barrio of Esperanza there is a small beach that locals like to gather at especially on weekends.

There are plenty of palm trees to allow some shade.

Of Course in Esperanza there is a Shack on the Beach serving up ice cold local beer.

I’ll leave you with one more photo. It’s time to head home, wash the sand and salt off in the outdoor shower and make a cocktail.

  1. In the future we need to talk, my wife keeps trying to get my pale irish body to a beach and the only thats going to happen is if there are palm trees like the ones I see in those pics giving copious amounts of shade.

  2. James, Let’s talk when your ready. Preferably we’ll both be on a beach under the shade of a palm tree with a chilled coconut filled with DonQ Anejo.
