Vieques island

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Vieques - island in Puerto Rico - not far from the Big island. The island has excellent beaches and bioluminescent bay where the water shines at night. For a long time a large area of the island was occupied by the U.S. military base, so tourist development has been delayed. Therefore, the island has well preserved nature. Some parts of the island are closed to tourists due to the risk of bomb explosion. Beach and seabed: sand. [edit]
This island ranks #14 of the "Best islands in the Caribbean"

Hotels [edit]

The island has several hotels and guesthouses, most of which are not presented in international booking systems. Also near the Sun Bay beach there is a campsite where you can settle in your tent.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to San Juan airport (SJU). Next get to Fajardo ferry dock by taxi or by bus. Boats to Vieques island run several times per day.

When to go [edit]

Feel free to visit Vieques island any time of year. There is a small chance of hurricanes in the summer, but sea water is warmer. Winter is considered to be a high season, and there are a lot of people that time.

Useful information [edit]

The best beaches are located near a southern Esperanza town. There are several shops in a town with a poor choice of products. Good supermarket is only in Isabel Segunda town, which has ferry port serving boats from the Big Island.
