Vieques is located about 8 miles east of Puerto Rico, and measures about 21 miles long by 4 miles wide. Its main town, Isabel Segunda is located on the northern side of the island.

Lately, the island has seen a boom in development of restaurants, galleries and small hotels.
What to do when traveling to Vieques:
A little Vieques history- Vieques is best known for its amazing beaches and wild life. For sixty years the majority of Vieques was closed off by the US Navy, and the island remained almost entirely undeveloped for tourism. The lands previously owned by the Navy have been turned over to the US National Fish and Wildlife Service and the authorities of Puerto Rico and Vieques for management. There are still numerous beaches that still retain the names given by the navy, including Red Beach, Blue Beach and Green Beach.
Beaches- Often listed among the top beaches in the World, Vieques’ beaches feel like a true Caribbean gem. In addition to pristine beaches, Vieques offers many marine activities such as sailing, surfing, scuba diving, and windsurfing, and paddle boarding.
Bioluminescent Bay- The main and most unique attraction in Vieques is the Bioluminescent Bay, also known as Mosquito Bay, considered the best example of a bioluminescent bay in the United States and is listed as a national natural landmark, one of five in Puerto Rico. The luminescence in the bay is caused by a microorganism, a dinoflagellate, which glows whenever the water is disturbed, leaving a trail of neon blue glow. A combination of factors creates the necessary conditions for bioluminescence; red mangrove trees surround the water, a complete lack of modern development around the bay, the water is cool enough and deep enough, and a small channel to the ocean that keeps the dinoflagellates in the bay.
