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, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, deepen your knowledge of military history at Camp Garcia, and enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva.
