Los Roques archipelago, the largest coral atoll of the Caribbean,
is situated 160 km north of Caracas in Venezuela. It is comprised
of around 350 islands protected by a long and magnificent
coral reef creating still and crystal clear waters.
The immaculate white beaches stretch as far as the eye can see,
offsetting the ever-changing colours of the sea. Inhabited by innumerable
birds and an incredible variety of fish and sea turtles, the archipelago
was declared a natural park in 1972.
Only 4 islands of the archipelago are inhabited (by fishermen),
and only the main island, Gran Roque, has a small village which
is very characteristic.
