  • You climb quickly and get a 360 degree view from the most high of el Gran Roque, you appreciate how wonderful this place from the top.

  • view is a beauty from the lighthouse, you can see all the gran roque, the only downside is that the Venezuelan Government has not finished repairing the lighthouse which is broken on one side of the rest all very good

  • THE path that leads up to the lighthouse already gives you a beautiful view, and when you get to the lighthouse, the view is dreamed, panoramic view of the island, and the sunsets are beautifully magical.
