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: explore the activities along Sun Bay Beach, take a tour by water with Vieques Classic Charter, tour the pleasant surroundings at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, and kick back and relax at Media Luna Beach.

For traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Isla de Vieques driving holiday planning site.
