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, wildlife, adventure, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the activities along Sun Bay Beach, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, don't miss a visit to La Gran Ceiba de Vieques, and enjoy some diversion at Vieques Gun Club & Sporting Clays.
