Los Roques is a collection of islands about 50 miles north of Venezuela. With lots of white sandy beaches it’s a popular day trip or weekend trip for Venezuelans. They are protected on the east side by a large reef, and small islands dot the eastern, northern and western side of a very large group of central islands which are entirely restricted as a wildlife sanctuary. The printed and electronic charts were not very accurate, but the Doyle guide’s sketch charts were excellent.
