Isla Nena

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 20th (Thu): take in the waterfront at Mosquito Pier and then explore the activities along Sun Bay Beach. On the next day, enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva, then stroll through Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, and then take a leisurely stroll along Malecon.

For other places to visit, maps, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Isla de Vieques trip planner.
