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 7th (Sun), take in the waterfront at Mosquito Pier, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Media Luna Beach, and then enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva. On the 8th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the waterfront at Malecon and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Sun Bay Beach.

Walled City
