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.
On the 11th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take a leisurely stroll along Malecon and then contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay Beach.

Norfolk, USA to Isla de Vieques is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Norfolk to Isla de Vieques.
