From town (Isabel II), take 200 toward the east about 1 1/2 miles. Go past the baseball park and look for the Vieques Humane Society on the left. The beach access is 1/2 mile past VHS, past Ababor Suites, where the road starts to take a sharp turn to the right, away from the water. The electrical equipment and power lines inside the fence gives this beach its name.

From here, you can enjoy and explore or walk left down the long beach toward Bastimento.

Playa Voltio is a northside beach with views of mainland PR to the left and Culebra to the right.

Toward the west, it is a nice long strip of sand for walking, beachcombing, etc. Foot protection is recommended though because most of the “sea glass” here, and there is plenty, hasn’t been tumbled smooth. In a few hundred yards, after you pass Ababor Suites, you will reach Bastimento Beach. There is good snorkeling at both of these beaches, depending on wind and waves.

There is some shade along the shore from the bushes and palm trees.
