Overview of War Bunkers and Barracks

The history of Vieques is tied up with the history of the U.S. Navy. During its occupation of the island, the Naval Ammunition Facility (NAF) built a network of naval magazines in Vieques - hundreds of bunkers for ammunition storage, built into the hills, camouflaged beneath earth and grass on the western side of the island. They're a bizarre and eerie reminder of what once took place on the island. The older ones, built during World War II, are so well hidden that they can be easily mistaken for rolling hills. A few are unlocked, if you want to venture in. There are also housing barracks on the same road, and they are easier to view. The road is difficult to find, as there are no signs for it, so you might ask a local for help.

"It was pretty cool, but we had a really hard time finding the road to get here. One sign said Barracks, but it was pointing at the wrong road, and in the wrong direction. We went inside one of the bunkers, and it was partially filled with old TVs and computer monitors. It felt a little creepy to be there, as these have been abandoned for years. Strange, but worth the trip."

Vera H. wrote about Bubble Bay Spa:

"We stopped at the Bubble Bay Spa to have a picnic after snorkeling at Champagne Beach. Bubble Bay was a fantastic little natural hot pool. You get a great view of the bay & the mountains while you soak in the calm,warm waters. The water & the beach were very clean. I overheard other people talking about another hot pool farther up the mountain in Soufriere. But they said it was a bunch of cement pools that seemed dirty. I'm glad we went to the Bubble Bay Spa :D
