Carenero Island, Los Roques National Park

4.7
#4 of 7 in Nature in Los Roques National Park
Swim, snorkel, or do some sport fishing in the calm, azure waters of Carenero Island. Sunbathe and stroll across the island's white sandy beaches and sandbars. If you work up an appetite, head to the island's simple restaurant--arguably the main attraction here--where you can try fresh fish and lobsters caught by local anglers. With half of the walls and all the furniture painted blue, and decorative strings of white fish bones hanging from the ceiling, the eatery blends with its natural surroundings. If you take a longer walk along the shore, you might stumble upon wooden crosses marking the place of a shipwreck. Start your trip to Los Roques National Park by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • This key is very nice but the best of all was to meet those who live there pain and Paina are the best of places too splendid to tell the truth. They have a restaurant and they cater to you with all their love!

  • Long, narrow island. If you can cross over to the back side of the island to dive. A few meters from the beach there is a blue immensity where you can appreciate much of the marine fauna.
