Lobster and kayak

Excellent place to relax upside the water, enjoy a Lobster and have some fun with kayak. I strongly recommend it.

It is hard to say which beach/cayo is the best in Los Roques, but Francisqui is definitely the best beach with a restaurant on it. We spent plenty of time in the water there, but when we wanted something to eat and drink we went to the little open air restaurant that is right on the beach. Cuba libres, cervesas,... More

when you get to los roques you have 2 choices. take a package tour and be crowded in with another 20-30 people per day or, rent a boat (with a skipper) and ask him to take you to a sand bank, leave you there, and return to pick you up at sundown. Most posadas, will organize this trip, and you... More

Here, this key, have the possibility to walk some meters with the water at your knees. You can take a chair with you and sit there while your kids are careless playing or simply stay talking with friends. If you snorkel, maybe can see some lobsters laying at the bottom between the algae. At the rear part of the key,... More

All the cayos I have visited in Los Roques are gorgeous and Francisqui is no exception. We went for a short-day on Friday because we were leaving for Caracas on a 3:00 flight. The short distance from Gran Roque make this the perfect cayo if you have less than a full day at the beach, but you may never want... More

Just 15 minutes on boat from the Gran Roque island, francisqui is a beautiful place to go and spend the day! The beach is ideal for swimming, doing kitesurfing or snorkeling. On one side there is what locals call "the pool" where you can snorkel around watching marine life. There is a restaurant where you can have lunch if it... More

The water is crazy (you can see 3 diferent colors in the same place) unbelivable!!!!.. is just 5 minutes from the gran roque, so is the best option if you have a tight schedule

One of the islands we visited from Gran Roque (10 minutes away by boat). It has a wind and kite surf school and rental service. Nice place also to rest or to snorkel. Bring sun block and mosquito repellant!

one of the closest beach/island options from Gran Roque - has a strip of beach and beautiful crystal clear turquoise water. Also a restaurant with great food. But be aware that biting flies and some other sort of really tiny biting insect start to appear in the afternoons (I was there in Aug, no idea if it's year-round). Sitting in... More
