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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Sun Bay Beach and Media Luna Beach. For shopping fun, head to Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery or Isla Vida. There's much more to do: view the masterpieces at Gallery Galleon, kick back and relax at La Chiva, enjoy the sea views from Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and identify plant and animal life at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge.
