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.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the activities along Sun Bay Beach, stroll through Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and kick back and relax at Black Sand Beach.
