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.
Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum and Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Sun Bay Beach and Media Luna Beach for some beach relaxation. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva, tour the pleasant surroundings at Caracas Beach, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and get great views at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.
