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.
Isabel Segunda and Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get outdoors at Sun Bay and Blue Beach. Step out of Isla de Vieques with an excursion to Fish Market in Isabel Segunda--about 56 minutes away. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Media Luna Beach, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, identify plant and animal life at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, and stroll through Black Sand Beach.
