About Vieques

Vieques gorgeously typifies the small, Caribbean island experience. It's just five miles across and 21 miles long, many of those miles including wide stretches of unspoiled sand, and there's little traffic - and in fact no traffic lights. So it's not just peaceful, it's paradise for cyclists. Vieques isn't uninhabited though, there are plenty of beach bars in which to sip your cocktails, decent restaurants and some very nice choices when it comes to the best places to stay in Vieques.

The highlight of the island has to be Bioluminescent Bay, an ethereal lagoon which is home to millions of tiny little organisms which glow a strange green after dark. This is surely one of the world's great natural wonders.

While Vieques is considered very peaceful by mainland standards, it actually hots up quite nicely after dark, with regular music nights in the two towns, Esperanza and Isabel II.

Our pick of the best places to stay in Vieuqes are perfect spots for an idyllic off the beaten track Caribbean holiday.

For an idyllic beach break

  • The W retreat is a gorgeous five star resort right on the beach, with colourful detail and enormous bathrooms and sun decks. There are just 15 rooms, but between them they share an outdoor pool, gym, spa, tennis courts, a library and a private beach. The restaurant is very Puerto Rican.
  • The Blue Horizon Boutique Hotel is a plantation style hotel, with just ten rooms, right on the beach. The decor is Caribbean boutique and the restaurant serves Caribbean cuisine. There's great facilities considering the hotel's size and a grown-up ambience.

For total relaxation

  • Hix island House is a square, granite affair with slick decor and outdoor showers surrounded by jungle. Stunning and secluded, these 19 rooms also have their own full kitchens, so you can hideaway from everyone if you so choose.
  • The Crow's Nest is a charming, rural B&B with beautiful views and family-friendly seclusion. The decor is colourful, to match the bright pink bougainvillaea surrounding the house, and you're a short stroll from Bioluminescent Bay, Fort Conde de Mirasol and Isabel Segunda Harbour.
