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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Secret Beach and Blue Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Gallery Galleon and Puerto Ferro Lighthouse. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Sun Bay, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and enjoy the sand and surf at Caracas Beach.
