Los Roques image

Just 90 nautical miles north of Caracas, the Los Roques archipelago comprises around 42 reef-formed islands, the largest of which is Gran Roque, and many smaller islets covering a total area of 400 square kilometres. The turquoise water is crystal-clear and there are many exotic fish around the coral, so it is wonderful for snorkelling and diving. On the cayes themselves there are miles of pristine, white sandy beaches (and very little natural shade).
