  • Great vistas of the entire island. Friendly staff and a nice hIke up from town. Great place to visit.
  • The small fort is a nice side trip while on the island of Vieques in the main town of Isabel II. Built in 1848 by the Spaniards to monitor the British boats leaving nearby British Virgin Islands. The fort sits on top of a hill with panoramic views of the ocean and nearby island of Culebra and Puerto Rico. On a clear day you can see St. Croix and BVI.
  • It's one of the island's pride and Joy...
  • Modern art and some old artefacts. Mostly in Spanish.
  • The end part of the 1986 film - Heartbreak Ridge - with Clint Eastwood was filmed here.
