Al’s Mar Azul, Vieques

Sometimes the best thing about a beach bar is not the beach, or the food, or even the drinks, and even though the beach is beautiful and the drinks are good, there is something even better about Als’ Mar Azul in Vieques.

Al’s Mar Azul, Vieques

After spending a day exploring the beaches and sights on Vieques, we stopped at Al’s Mar Azul to enjoy a little grub and few drinks before catching the ferry back to Puerto Rico.

Warning sign at Al’s Mar Azul. Use of Rum and Tequila Authorized.

We were waterlogged, hungry and thirsty as we walked in to Mar Azul and were cheerfully greeted by the staff.

Al’s Bar

We made our way to the back of the bar and requested a table on the open aired deck that overlooks the ocean and the ferry dock – and wow, were we glad we did.

We ordered some sliders, a chicken wrap, a rum punch and a Mar Azul Special (a tasty green drink with rum in it) and settled in to watch the sun set from our choice seats on the deck.

Amazing sunset from the deck

We sat there until we saw the ferry arriving from Puerto Rico (white light in the middle of the picture), reluctantly said goodbye and walked back to the ferry dock for our ride back to PR.

Ferry making it’s way back to Vieques

Whether vacationing on Vieques or just spending the day there, we’d say it’s definitely worth enjoying a beverage and taking in a sunset at Al’s Mar Azul, Vieques.
