Casa Mamey is a beautiful architect-built home with spectacular Atlantic ocean views .
On a hill directly above the ocean, views and cool breezes abound on this private spot(over 2 acres of ridge top meadow) From the hill up to the property there are views to El Yunque rainforest in the West all the way to St. Thomas U.S.V.I. in the East. While the house is imbedded in a densely forested ravine next to meadows, it is just minutes from incredible beaches, shopping, and restaurants.
The owners have added this house to their planned avocado farm with active plantings of a variety of tropical fruit trees, undertaken to foster Vieques' agricultural renaissance.
Bastimento Beach lies below w/ a vast tidal pool behind a coral breakwater. To the left is beach glass, to the right is magnificent snorkeling, leading on to ten miles of Fish and Wildlife Refuge coastline with no road access. Walkers or kayakers, knock yourself out! The trade winds will drift you back home

BASTIMENTO (PURPLE) BEACH: Casa Mamey lies above Bastimento Beach with it's 100 yards of natural coral breakwater for wading and shallow childsafe swimming, with a treasure trove of beach glass the to West. To the East, 16,000 acres Fish and Wildllife Refuge coastline is completely innaccessible to vehicular traffic of any kind. On land that was occupied by the U.S. Navy in 1945, you can walk nearly 10 miles of entirely uninhabited coastline untouched by human development until your reach land's end where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean. For the more active and adventurous snorkel enthusiasts, a coral reef only 45 yards offshore teems with red snapper, yellow fin tuna, conch, angel fish, and an extraordinary variety of oceanic life.
Kayakers, knock yourselves out reassured that no matter how much exploring you do... the trade winds will gently drift you back home. Stay put right where you on Bastimento Beach, and you can watch the sun set over the Big Island of Puerto Rico over half the year.
VIEQUES IS BEACHES!!!: Starting with the Western end of Island, Punta Arenas is the farthest, and one of the prettiest, with great views of the Big Island. The Rompeolas (breakwater), for serious fishing and spectacular sunsets, is also out that way. The most accessible swimming beaches are in the Sun Bay Balneario. It is just east of Esperanza on the south side of the island and has 3 very different beach experiences, one of which is Media Luna, the best toddler beach on earth!. This vast Parques Nacionales area also has the bioluminescent bay. We recommend going on moonless nights with the BioBay Conservation group's pontoon boat and biologists, or another organized group. Many deserted beaches are on the East end Fish and Wildlife Refuge. The road to the main beaches is good, but feel free to explore off the beaten path. Other precious experiences are feeding wild horses, losing yourself on long walks through tropical hills and dales, and weekend nights at the NASA...dancing on the strip in Esperanza.
