Culebra vs Vieques

We are spending 5 days in San Juan and I would like to spend 2 of those days in either Culebra or Vieques, however, I can't decide which Island to visit. We are looking for an unspoiled island where we can relax and enjoy beautiful beaches and a day of snorkeling and a quiet, romantic evening. Any recommendations or preferences between the two? Thanks for any advice!!

Well if you want more to do, Vieques is your island.

Its larger and has more of a town on it and more tourists that STAY there also. Vieques also has many great beaches, restaurants, and the biobay. Two days here can go either way, active hiking around beach hunting or just mellow and doing nothing.

On the other hand, Culebra is less developed and in my opinion has one spectacular amazing awesome top notch beach, Flamenco, and a few good beaches (less than Vieques). On Culebra there is less to do and nights are very calm. If you are at Flamenco staying the night, it is awesome to walk on the beach at night and see the stars, I have NEVER seen so many stars at once. Its amazing. And an easy way to get a few free wishes because you get to see sooo many shooting stars also. lol

Complete isolation from the rest of the world - Culebra

Resort feel - Vieques
