Isla de Vieques

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: tour the pleasant surroundings at Sun Bay Beach, take a leisurely stroll along Mosquito Pier, enjoy the sand and surf at Media Luna Beach, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
