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.

There's still lots to do: take in the exciting artwork at Gallery Galleon, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, stop by Isla Vida, and look for all kinds of wild species at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge.
