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.
On the 22nd (Mon), kick back and relax at La Chiva, then take a leisurely stroll along Malecon, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Media Luna Beach. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take a leisurely stroll along Mosquito Pier and then explore the activities along Sun Bay Beach.
