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.
You'll get in some beach time at Media Luna Beach and Secret Beach. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery and Puerto Ferro Lighthouse. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay, enjoy the sand and surf at Caracas Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Navio Beach, and surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.

With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Take a break from the city and head to Playa Punta Soldado Beach and Zoni Beach. Visit Tamarindo Beach and Carlos Rosario Beach for some beach relaxation. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Flamenco Beach and stop by Zinkowski Art Studio.
