Jun 25, 2009 - Los Roques - Madrisqui

Today was moving day as we were obliged to change posadas due to a lack of space. After a great breakfast and having moved our stuff over to the new place, we proceeded to the second island, Madrisqui, not unlike the first with a gorgeous white sandy beach on one side and coral reef on the other. Madrisqui had a little more action, due to a fun-loving group that set up shop down the beach a little way and who had come equipped with music and games. What was the same was the beautiful, sugar-fine sand, the gorgeous aquamarine blue water and...

Jun 25, 2009 - Los Roques - European Travellers

We have learned that Los Roques islands are especially attractive to Brazilians - which makes sense given that country's proximity and its large number of wealthy residents - and to Italians for some unexplained reason. Certainly the amount of Italian and Portuguese heard on the islands has been impressive. There are a fair few travelers from Spain as well. There are almost no North Americans, in fact I mentioned to Adrian the fact that two English-speaking Americans could be heard having a drink at an outdoor table - as if that is a great...

Jun 24, 2009 - Los Roques - Francisqui

After something of a late start, we decided to do what one does in Los Roques -- go to the beach! We gathered up our books and sunscreen, hats and water and headed down to the water taxi wharf where we added a large beach umbrella to our accoutrement. It was already blazing hot but the bone white sand and incomparably beautiful Caribbean blue water were very inviting. The water taxi dropped us at Francisquí's incredibly fine, white sandy beach. The temperature was scorching and although well warned, I somehow missed much of my neck and back...

Jun 23, 2009 - Los Roques

The main island of Gran Roque is the sole place to stay in the island group and day trips are made to other islands. We visited two: Francisquí and Madrisquí. There are no nice swimming beaches on Gran Roque although our posada (pension) and many of the others here are right on the water. The flight over the idyllic island and atoll group was gorgeous. Gran Roque (which is the main island but not, as its name would suggest, the largest) consists of a flat part and an uninhabitable mountainous part. The flat part has perhaps 6 x 4 streets...

Aug 20, 2007 - LOS ROQUES o EL PARAISO

Los Roques ens ha deixat de pedra, i mai millor dit. Hem estat 4 díes i 4 nits a la illa de Crasqui, una de les illes de l'arxipèlag de Los Roques. La gent acostuma a quedar-se a l'illa principal, Gran Roque, i sortir cada matí en barca cap a alguna illa petita. Nosaltres, ens vam anar directament cap a una d'aquestes illes, Crasqui, on només hi havia el Rancho Agua Clara, i un o dos cases que donaven menjar. En total menys de 20 habitants. La illa és un paradís, i poguer-hi ser als matins i a les tardes, quan ja no hi ha ningú a l'illa és...
