    Bio-Bay / Island Adventures

    by emeseye Written Apr 30, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Absolute Must! A guided trip to the Bio-Bay will be one of the highlights of your trip to Vieques. Practically indescribable, it is an opportunity you should not miss! We highly recommend Island Adventures (www.biobay.com) where Frank and Sharon share their knowledge of and respect for this phenomenal ecosystem. We were fortunate to visit the bay on a moonless, cloudy, drizzling evening which made the bay come alive with the raindrops. Be sure to swim with the dinoflagellates, like swimming in stars!

    Snorkeling/Scuba diving

    If you like snorkeling or scuba diving, go to Green Beach.

    It has the most amazing coral reefs in the caribbean. And walk around the beach. You will probably find yourself walking completely alone, just listening to the birds in the palm trees, and to the wind whisteling through the leaves.

    Old Navy Base - The whole West End of the island used to be used as an ammo storage facility for the Navy. All the ammo has been removed, the land given back to the Vieques Govenment, but remnants still remain. Here's a photo of one of the storage bunkers that can be found thoughout the old base.

    Bio Bay- Bio Bay!!!
    Go with Island Adventures, they are the best and they really know their business. These people are researchers, and they use the money they made in their tours to pay and finance their research. Captain Sharon is the best !!!! She teaches you about the organism that creates the glow on the water and takes
    her time explaining to people how important and delicate is the Bay and why it is so crucial to saved it.
    Kayaking with Elena, Scuba Diving, deep sea fishing and Horse backriding is highly recommended. You can also rent bycycles, scooters or chart a sailing trip.

    MUST DO: TAKE A BOAT TOUR TO MOSQUITO BAY AT NIGHT.
    THIS IS ONE OF THE WORLDS BEST BIOLUMINESCENT BAYS.
    WHEN YOU GET THERE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE GREEN LIGHT COMING FROM THE WAKE OF THE BOAT, WHEN THE BOAT COMES TO A STOP YOU WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO SEE THE FISH SWIMMING AROUND THE BOAT W/THE SAME GREEN LIGHT. FINALLY JUST JUMP IN AND EXPERIENCE THE BIO BAY!! ITS
    ALMOST LIKE A DREAM.

    Fortin Conde de Mirasol

    by eduar68 Updated Nov 30, 2005

    This little fort looking over tiny Isabel Segunda has the honor of being the last fortress built by the spaniards in the Americas. Contruction started in the 1840s. The main building and most of the ramparts were built but it was never fully completed. It was used as a garrison for the island to protect it from danish, british or smugglers attacks. It was also used as a jail until the 1940s. Currently there is a historical and anthropological museum, an art gallery and a gift shop.

    Admission: $2

    Playa Media Luna

    by eduar68 Updated Nov 30, 2005

    This beach was used as the set for the movie "Lord of the Flies" back a while ago. Indeed it has a "lost island" feeling. You can access the beach by a dirt road following the public beach "Sun Bay". Once there you will be welcomed to powder white sands and shallow waters for hundreds of feet. Ideal for families with children. One problem. No bathrooms. Recently a few concrete picnic huts were built.

    The Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust

    by eduar68 Updated Nov 30, 2005

    Such an imposing name!! Actually you can pass this little place right on the middle of the "strip" of Esperanza and wouldn't notice. It was established in 1984. There is a little museum with some history and archaeology of Vieques' Pre-Columbian inhabitants, the Taino Indians. A little gift/crafts shop with also some books and in the back, the so called "tiniest aquarium in the world". It has some local fish, coral and other sealife.
    There's also wi-fi access and cybercafe in one of the rooms which also fuctions as a library. Here you can also experience classes, films and Bioluminescent Bay information.

    Open Daily 8am-4pm (gift shop 11am-4pm)

    Free Admission

    Glow In The Dark

    by jag17 Written May 20, 2005

    We went to Vieques to experience the bioluminescence mangrove bay. An incredible experience of swimming in microorganisms that contain both plant and animal cells. When disturbed by any movement in the water, a bright blue glow can be seen. Often described as swimming in fairy dust, or swimming in the stars. It really must be experienced. Check out the web site for the best days (no moon) to view.

  • Snorkeling along Mosquito Pier

    by GeorgeJabin Written Feb 25, 2003

    The west side of this mile long pier serves as a great site to see lots of fish. The water tends to be calmer compared to other beaches on the island.

    Drive around the island! You'll see lots of 'wild' horses. They don't look very wild, just not owned by anyone!
