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.
Kick off your visit on the 24th (Wed): get interesting insight from Tours and then enjoy the sand and surf at Sun Bay. Keep things going the next day: visit a coastal fixture at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, explore the ancient world of El Hombre de Puerto Ferro, then enjoy the sand and surf at Media Luna Beach, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Caracas Beach.
