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.
Get some cultural insight at Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery and Puerto Ferro Lighthouse. Discover out-of-the-way places like Secret Beach and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Sun Bay, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, tour the pleasant surroundings at La Chiva, and take in the waterfront at Malecon.
