Pirata elev. 936 feet. The tallest point in Vieques, this peak is
where the pirate lookouts would search the seas for ships to prey
on and fleets to run from. ( Seen in the background).
Esperanza Waterfront is on the South Coast. The tiny 'town' is the
Tourist Center with shops and restaurants. There are places to stay
across the street, but the good beaches are still some distance
away. It is advisable to rent a jeep to truly enjoy the variety
of beautiful beaches in Vieques, however 'one nighters' and those
who for some reason will not be renting a jeep would be happiest
in Esperanza, where you can walk to beaches and restaurants.
