Welcome to Archipiélago Los Roques
Almost all the islands are uninhabited and can be visited on day trips from Gran Roque. Indeed, while Gran Roque has a wonderful stretch of beach itself, it's taken up by fishing boats and other vessels along its whole length, meaning that visitors have little choice but to go on day trips to other islands in order to enjoy the alternatives. The surrounding waters are known for their sea life, which attracts divers and snorkelers, while also meaning that there's excellent fresh seafood on most menus.
For sunset views at Gran Roque, climb the hill to the remains of the Faro Holandés, an 1870s lighthouse. Do bring a flashlight to Los Roques in case of power outages. All visitors to Los Roques must pay a US$0.75 national-park entry fee upon arrival.
