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.
Start off your visit on the 3rd (Fri): take in the waterfront at Malecon and then explore the activities along Sun Bay. On the 4th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, look for all kinds of wild species at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, and then enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva.
