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.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva, tour the pleasant surroundings at Media Luna Beach, and then shop like a local with Gallery Galleon.
