Mosquito Bay (Bioluminescent Bay)
Come and visit the wonders of the Bioluminescent Bay in Vieques! Officially declared the world's brightest bay since 2006 and one of the 7 wonders of the world. Come and take a tour with one of our local kayaking tours or by electric boat to enjoy the magical and unique adventure that awaits you!
These rare ecosystems happen when microscopic, single-celled organisms called dinoflagellates grow in quantities big enough to produce a “glow-in-the-dark” effect when stimulated by movement. So, when you paddle or splash the water, these organisms light up in a neon blue-green color, and so does everything they come in contact with, giving a star-like reflection to the water.
Dinoflagellates can be found throughout the ocean; however, it is very rare for them to be live in concentrations high enough to be noticeable. To put this in perspective, there must be thousands and thousands of these single-celled organisms to make a gallon of water light up.

Rompeolas Vieques, Mosquito Rd, Vieques, Puerto Rico
Rompeolas (Mosquito Pier)
Mosquito Pier is a one mile long road that was built by the U.S. Navy in 1941. The construction began with the idea of connecting Vieques with Ceiba, Roosevelt Roads where the Navy base used to be located. They wanted to build a massive base to house the U.S. and British flees, but the stopped the construction in 1943 after the Pearl Harbor attack and when there was also the Second World War. The project was never finished, but some locals hope that in the future the area may be used as a new ferry terminal, to create a shorter route from Ceiba, Roosevelt Roads. It is a nice breezy area, but careful going swimming because it drops in very deep waters right away.

Bunkers Road, Vieques, Puerto Rico
Just after Mosquito Pier and the Crab Island Rum Distillery, lay hidden on the West side of the island the U.S. Navy's Bunkers. The Bunkers were built by the Navy in 1941 during the WWII. They bought 2/3 parts of the island to built a training facility on the East and West side of the island, leaving only the middle for civilian use. The Bunkers were built into the nature contours so that anyone viewing the complex from the air would not be able to visualize them. Inside the Bunkers, the Navy used to store live weapons and ammunition, but after the WWII ended, they continued to use the island to store munitions and test their armaments, causing terrible damage to the ecology and community of the island. It wasn't until 2003, that after all the repeated protest that the locals made, that the U.S. Navy finally decided to leave the island. Although they had left the island and abandoned permanently the Bunkers, they still left countless un-explosive munitions (bombs) and others on the East side of Vieques that are now being managed and cleaned by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Refuge. The Bunkers now remain empty and abandoned. Although, some of them are still locked, many lie open exposing tons of computer monitors and other remnants of their operations.
