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.
Relax by the water at Caracas Beach and Media Luna Beach. Get some cultural insight at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse and Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at La Chiva, take in the waterfront at Mosquito Pier, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and stroll through Navio Beach.
