For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Media Luna Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at La Chiva, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
