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.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Mon): contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay Beach and then take a leisurely stroll along Malecon. Keep things going the next day: stroll through La Chiva, then add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and then take a leisurely stroll along Mosquito Pier.
