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: stroll through Sun Bay Beach, kick back and relax at La Chiva, take a leisurely stroll along Mosquito Pier, and take some stellar pictures from Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.
