Where Is Vieques?

Vieques is an island paradise located seven miles southeast of Puerto Rico. Also called “Isla Nena,” Vieques is the little sister island of Puerto Rico. Vieques Island has the Caribbean Sea to the south and the Atlantic Ocean to the north, and you must travel by ferry or plane to get here.

Vieques is a mostly undeveloped island with a year-round population of only 9,000 people.

With miles of secluded beaches and countless ecological wonders, Vieques is a paradise for those looking for tropical beauty and island relaxation.

About Vieques

Vieques has a rich cultural history dating back more than 4,000 years. The island has been inhabited by Taino Indians and was occupied for a time by France and Spain.

For 60 years, a large portion of Vieques was a U.S. Navy training location. In 2003, Vieques won a long struggle to remove the Navy and several of our most beautiful beaches were reopened to the public. The unspoiled beauty and uncrowded beaches attract people from all over the world.

Vieques has abundant natural beauty, dozens of amazing Caribbean beaches, and countless ecological wonders – including the brightest bioluminescent bay in the world. There are wild horses roaming freely on the beaches and the roads. You will not find a traffic light anywhere here! Vieques has topped numerous charts at Travel and Leisure over the years including Top 15 islands in the Caribbean, Bermuda, and the Bahamas for 2018.

Over two-thirds of Vieques is a federally protected Wildlife Refuge, offering beach and nature lovers the perfect chance to experience a subtropical Caribbean ecology.

Sip on some coco frio, take a walk to Playa Negra (black sand beach), swing in a hammock by a secluded, white sand beach, experience Vieques underwater while snorkeling with Abe’s, and see the magical biobay by kayak while you’re here. Be careful, though, because many people who visit never want to leave!
