Faro Holandes, Isla El Gran Roque

Ruin · Tourist Spot
For panoramic views of the coastline, head to Faro Holandes, an old lighthouse built by the Venezuelan government in 1874. The lighthouse sits on the highest point of the island, so wear proper shoes and take plenty of water for your uphill hike. Don't forget to bring some insect repellent, as mosquitoes can be rife in the area during certain times of the day.
