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.
We've included these beaches for you: Caracas Beach and Sun Bay Beach. Explore hidden gems such as La Chiva and Stand-Up Paddleboarding.
