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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Stand-Up Paddleboarding and La Chiva. Kids will enjoy Mosquito Pier and Caracas Beach. There's still lots to do: take a leisurely stroll along Malecon and contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay Beach.

For more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Isla de Vieques trip itinerary maker website.
