“El Malecón” is favorite hang out for visitors in the charming coast of Barrio Esperanza – located on the south side of Vieques. Visitors can choose from a variety of restaurants ranging from casual to fine cuisine with the bonus of a great view of the Caribbean waters with a background of offshore cays and Monte Pirata. Bring your camera to capture memories with the perfect background of the sun setting behind Monte Pirata.
You can often find local artists selling beautiful unique crafts. Please take a look and support the local artists. Looking left of “El Malecón”there is a beautiful beach perfect for snorkeling, bathing, and very kid friendly. If you prefer not to rent a car during your vacation in Vieques we encourage you to choose an accommodation in Esperanza since you can basically walk to great beaches and great restaurants and you can get access to public transportation easily from Esperanza. You can often find young boys proudly riding their horses along “El Malecón”, especially on Sundays.
Vieques is by no means a vacation destination for those that love a busy nightlife, but if you want some evening entertainment and good food, “El Malecón” is a great place to be.
