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.
Puerto Ferro Lighthouse and El Hombre de Puerto Ferro will appeal to history buffs. You'll get in some beach time at Sun Bay and La Chiva. There's still lots to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, take an in-depth tour of Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum, and paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour.
