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.
On the 10th (Mon), enjoy the sand and surf at Media Luna Beach, then take some stellar pictures from Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and then kick back and relax at La Chiva. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 11th (Tue): take in the waterfront at Malecon and then explore the activities along Sun Bay Beach.

For more things to do, photos, maps, and tourist information, go to the Isla de Vieques trip planning app .

Calgary, Canada to Isla de Vieques is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Mountain Standard Time to Atlantic Standard Time, which is usually a 3 hour difference.

With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Start off your visit on the 12th (Wed): kick back and relax at Playa Punta Soldado Beach and then stroll through Flamenco Beach. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: kick back and relax at Zoni Beach, then step off the mainland to explore Culebrita Island, and then visit a coastal fixture at Culebrita Lighthouse.
