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.
Visiting Sun Bay and Media Luna Beach will get you outdoors. Get some cultural insight at Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery and El Hombre de Puerto Ferro. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at La Chiva, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and visit a coastal fixture at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.
