EXPLORE LOS ROQUES
LOS ROQUES ARCHIPELAGO
Los Roques archipelago is the largest coral atoll in the Caribbean and lies 160km north of Caracas, Venezuela. Made up of around 350 islands surrounded by a large and magnificent coral reef in calm, crystal clear water.
The archipelago is characterised by pure and white beaches which stretch out as far as the eye can see forming a beautiful game of colours with the multicoloured sea.
Los Roques was declared a National Park in 1972 due to its beauty and ecological importance. Home to many bird types including the flamingo, pelican, seagull, gannet and frigate bird. The sea here hosts a variety of fish and sea turtles all making a real biological paradise.
The construction of hotels is not allowed to protect environmental integrity, making Los Roques a still virgin (pure) destination for ecological tourism.
Of all the islands only Gran Roque is inhabited, the others represent pristine landscapes where it is possible to go exclusively by boat.
