Isla de Vieques

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.
Bring the kids along to Sun Bay Beach and Vieques National Wildlife Refuge. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Media Luna Beach, take a leisurely stroll along Mosquito Pier, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva.
