Vieques Island

Vieques is a Caribbean island off Puerto Rico’s eastern coast. It’s known for boat tours of Bioluminescent Bay (or Mosquito Bay), where microorganisms give the water a blue-green glow. It also offers secluded beaches and snorkeling. Vieques has “not much luminic contamination, and is not pole lighted like Puerto Rico.”
