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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Secret Beach and Sun Bay. Explore hidden gems such as Blue Beach and Caracas Beach. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Navio Beach, get engrossed in the history at Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum, view the masterpieces at Gallery Galleon, and steep yourself in history at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.

For traveler tips, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Isla de Vieques custom trip planner.
