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.
Visiting Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Sun Bay Beach will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like Media Luna Beach and Navio Beach. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva, get great views at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, stroll through Caracas Beach, and view the masterpieces at Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery.

To see where to stay, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Isla de Vieques trip planner.

Newark, USA to Isla de Vieques is an approximately 10- hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Newark to Isla de Vieques. While traveling from Newark, expect somewhat warmer days and much warmer nights in Isla de Vieques, ranging from highs of 85°F to lows of 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Wed) early enough to travel to Culebra.

With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
You'll get in some beach time at Flamenco Beach and Tamarindo Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Zoni Beach and Playa Punta Soldado Beach. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Carlos Rosario Beach and stop by Zinkowski Art Studio.

To find traveler tips, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Culebra driving holiday planner.
