Isla de Vieques

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.
Isla de Vieques is known for nature, beaches, adventure, sightseeing, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay, kick back and relax at Blue Beach, stroll through Media Luna Beach, and visit a coastal fixture at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.

To find maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Isla de Vieques itinerary planner.

St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands to Isla de Vieques is an approximately 1-hour combination of flight and taxi. In July in Isla de Vieques, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 30°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to travel to San Juan.
