This island is about a 20 minute boat ride from the main island of Grand Roque in Los Roques. The cost is about 180 BsF for the boat ride including umbrella and chairs. It has gorgeous white sand beaches, extremely clear blue waters, some restaurants (apparently there are 3 but we only saw 1) and some snorkelling areas. You need to reserve your spot on the boat the previous day which you can do at the Oscars store right near the airport and the boat will leave around 5:30 and return around 4:30 or 5pm.
This was definitely one of the nicer islands we visited and was much less crowded and quieter than Fancisqui. I would advise that if you're visiting this island that you arrange to have some food and drinks in a cooler which can be transported out with you. Since you're stuck there for the whole day it's nice to have some icy drinks on hand!
A note on the snorkelling. I've read websites that describe Los Roques as having some of the best snorkelling areas in the world. You should do some research into where those areas are because we were told that Crasqui and Noronquises had the best snorkelling areas and when we arrived at Crasqui we were told to follow a path to the other side of the island which has great snorkelling. We followed the instructions and found the path, but I found the snorkelling to be quite average. There's definitely fish, and a tiny bit of coral, but don't expect to be blown away by the variety of life. Maybe we just didn't find the right spots or I've been to too many other amazing places for snorkelling :)
