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 Secret Beach and Sun Bay. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Blue Beach and Green Beach. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Caracas Beach, take a leisurely stroll along Malecon, steep yourself in history at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and kick back and relax at Navio Beach.

There's lots more to do: step off the mainland to explore Culebrita Island, browse the collection at Culebra Public Library, enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Punta Soldado Beach, and enjoy the sea views from Culebrita Lighthouse.
