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.
Attractions like Caracas Beach and Media Luna Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Take a break from the city and head to Sun Bay Beach and Kayaking & Canoeing. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Secret Beach (Pata Prieta), kick back and relax at La Chiva, take a leisurely stroll along Mosquito Pier, and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.

To see photos, ratings, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Isla de Vieques day trip planner.
