The 2015 Vieques Travel Guide

Vieques has its own special charm. With nothing on the agenda, every day offers something new–and different.  An island embraced by nature, Vieques is a playground of the wind, the sea, the sun and the light. Nowhere else in the world can you see so many shades of green and blue together on such a tiny island.  There are no movie theaters, traffic symbols or fast food. No bright lights or big city here, in contrast Vieques is a beacon… a magnetic, magical island. It makes you want to cut all ties and make a fresh start. Here you can be really free.

The Bioluminescent Bay shines in the night–the Caribbean’s natural wonder. The lights are breathtaking. Hello twinkling lights. Where am I? Vieques.

The World's Best Beaches

Vieques has the world's best beaches. Peaceful and tranquil, no buildings in site just plenty of white sand and turqoise water awaiting beach lover's to dive in. You could spend days exploring them all, but you'll want to save a day for driving around the island sightseeing and exploring.

Enjoying year round average temperatures between 80-90 degrees F and boasting the Caribbean’s largest wildlife sanctuary (Over 70% of the island is protected) Vieques Island is the ideal place to experience island life.
