Isla de Vieques

Isla de Vieques ©
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.
Isla de Vieques is known for nature, beaches, and wildlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay Beach, take a leisurely stroll along Malecon, tour the pleasant surroundings at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
