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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse and Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery. You'll get in some beach time at Sun Bay Beach and Media Luna Beach. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at La Chiva, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, take a memorable tour with Tours, and explore the ancient world of El Hombre de Puerto Ferro.
