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

This review is intended to actually express my utter joy not just in this one island but in all of Los Roques. The place is unbelievably lovely and deserves to be more visited but in many regards it is the limited amount of tourists that come here that keep it rather charming. The streets are all of sand, there are... More

Lovely key but at a certain time in the afternoon you are bitten by very tiny green insects for quite a while

Generally this is the most visited cayo for daily trips to los roques. It is very close to gran roque (the island where the airplanes land). It has a restaurant and also a coral reef for snorkeling. If you have only one day for los roques, this could be a good choice, If you have more time, the best cayo... More

Repellent is very necessary in Franciski. But is a very nice island, with bar and restaurant. Good place to visit in the day you arrive or leave Los Roques.

We came here 3 times during our time at Los Roques and cannot recommend the restaurant enough. Lovely people and a great setting for a beach lunch. Thanks to the owner for sorting out our lift back after a boat did not return for us. Fun having lunch with the gecko's too.
