Los Roques National Park is a Venezuelan archipelago around 160 kilometers north of the capital Caracas in the Caribbean Sea. The protected area contains more than 300 islands and cays surrounding a 400-sq.-km lagoon. The archipelago’s coral reef is popular with snorkelers and scuba divers. The park is renowned for its isolated, white-sand beaches, windsurfing, fishing and sailing.

Not much here but heaven!
