Isla Nena

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.
Isla de Vieques is known for nature, beaches, and wildlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay Beach, stroll through Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, take in the waterfront at Mosquito Pier, and kick back and relax at Media Luna Beach.
