Area Attractions

 

HIKING TOURS

Keeping it simple and still getting to places on the island rarely seen by people. Vieques offers hikes to breathtaking vistas and incredibly pristine beaches. Whether you want to see the historical ruins buried deep in the tropical jungle or beaches not accessible by vehicle, our hikes take you to where nature is in control.

 

 

 

Playa Grande Beach

This coastline hike incorporates climbs over rocky outcroppings between multiple stretches of shell filled sandy beaches. Rough surf typically prevents swimming, but small pools are good for frolicking or a quick dip, and a constant ocean breeze are sure to keep you cool.

 

Playa Grande Ruins

From the picturesque beach we’ll trek to the historical sugarcane plantation ruins deep into the tropical jungle. Don’t worry, snakes are extinct on Vieques!

 

KAYAK TOURS

What better way to experience a Caribbean island than by exploring the diversity of its shorelines. Paddle on crystal clear waters between pure white sand beachesand enchanted mangrove lagoons. Contact Black Beard Sports to arrange your kayaking nature excursion.

 

 

 

 

Puerto Ferro

This is an easy going paddle that incorporates a visit to the 110 year old lighthouse ruins. It then continues into the bay and through the diverse wildlife of a mangrove forest.

 

Kiani Lagoon

Explore the mangrove habitat on a very easy paddle through calm water that takes you into a natural sanctuary for birds and fish, with palm trees and mountains as your backdrop. Especially relaxing during sunrise! (4 hours total time)

BIOLUMINESCENT BAY

The 'Bahia Fosforescente' (Bioluminescent Bay) at Puerto Mosquito should be listed as the eighth natural wonder of the world. The microscopic organism responsible for the glow in the water when agitated is a protozoan of the family dinoflagellata, a unicellular organism with two flagella that allow it to move through the water. The most common protozoan in Puerto Mosquito's waters in the Pyrodinium bahamense. The Bay has a narrow exit to the sea allowing for the organisms to concentrate in its shallow refuge. It is the incredible concentration of these organisms what makes Vieques so unique. One of the world's most stunning natural sights, the largest bioluminescent bay at Puerto Mosquito is a perfect after-sunset activity*, also home to an amazing array of native wildlife.

*Please note, due to light sensitivity, Bio Bay tours are not offered in the days surrounding a full moon, please refer to a moon calendar when planning an excursion to the bio bay.

 

MOUNTAIN BIKE TOURS

The Complete Island

This is the most comprehensive bike tour of the island and requires a higher level of physical fitness. Although this is a moderately paced ride over moderate terrain, the Caribbean sun and humidity are the biggest concern.

HORSEBACK RIDING TOURS

Vieques is a true horse paradise, as Paso Fino horses roam free the island. One of the best ways to see Vieques is on the back of a horse. There are two great tour operators available.
