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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Sun Bay Beach and Caracas Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Media Luna Beach and La Chiva. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, kick back and relax at Green Beach, take in the waterfront at Malecon, and get great views at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.
