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 Caracas Beach will get you outdoors. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Navio Beach and La Chiva. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Media Luna Beach, take a leisurely stroll along Malecon, admire the striking features of Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and take in the exciting artwork at Serenity Point Yoga & Visionary Arts Space.
