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.
Bring the kids along to La Chiva and Caracas Beach. We've included these beaches for you: Sun Bay and Media Luna Beach. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and take a leisurely stroll along Malecon.
