Reviews of Islas Los Roques

The archipelago of Los Roques is made up of over 50 islands and a main island called Gran Roque. It's located in North Venezuela.

My suggestion:
Don't forget your mask, fins and snorkel because the seabed of this national park is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. 
My review

While on holiday in Venezuela, I reached Los Roques archipelago by boat. This is definitely a sailor's paradise. It became a national park in 1972 and is home to many species of fish and birds.

We sailed from island to island. We met some fishermen who we bought some tasty fish and lobsters from, all of which we then enjoyed on the barbecue. It's a real treat for your taste buds, and you can accompany it with some potatoes cooked in the embers.

We strolled along the deserted white sand beaches and looked out for driftwood and seashells. Our exploration ended and we visited another one of the islands where the sea is always a transparent blue, like the sea around Crasqui or Francisqui for example. Unforgettable moments!
