Vieques Info

Vieques (Pronounced VEE-ay-case or as the letters sound “B-A-K”) Island along with the neighboring Culebra Island make up what is oftentimes referred to as the Spanish Virgin Islands.  Measuring 21 miles long by 7 miles wide, Vieques is substantially bigger than Culebra and distinctly different in ambience.

Vieques is an island-municipality of Puerto Rico, located seven miles southeast of the main island.  The name ‘Vieques’ is a 17th-century Spanish colonial corruption of the Taíno name bieque (small island). Over the years, residents and visitors who share affection for this place have come to call Vieques ‘Isla Nena’ – a term of endearment meaning ‘Little Girl Island’.

After the destruction of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, Vieques continues to rebuild with a sense of community and excitement. Our “Isla Neña” is Paradise, once again!
