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: explore the activities along Sun Bay, take a leisurely stroll along Mosquito Pier, take an in-depth tour of Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum, and enjoy the sand and surf at Navio Beach.
