Isla de Vieques

Isla de Vieques ©
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, adventure, nightlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the activities along Sun Bay, take in the exciting artwork at Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, and kick back and relax at Media Luna Beach.

For photos, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read our Isla de Vieques day trip planning website .
