Owner description: A great destination for day-tripping windsurfers, fly fishermen and beach aficionados.

All the cayos I have visited in Los Roques are gorgeous and Francisqui is no exception. We went for a short-day on Friday because we were leaving for Caracas on a 3:00 flight. The short distance from Gran Roque make this the perfect cayo if you have less than a full day at the beach, but you may never want to leave. The water is beautiful, with views toward the open sea and gorgeous vistas of Gran Roque only 15 min. away. Do not miss snorkeling in the piscinita, the best we experienced in Los Roques. There are amazing good spirits among everyone on the beach so don't be surprised if, like me, you are greeted, in the water, by a party of gorgeous Brazilians who offer you a beer and food from out-of-a-dream their kayak-bar - gracias Ernesto all your Recife and Lisboa friends , if you read this let's keep in touch! The bar/restaurant on the beach is great and the beautiful Suni will make you the very best mojitos you have ever had and knows her way around a campari aquaquina, while offering many interesting thoughts on local life. I have been to many great beaches in my life but Los Roques for me is tops, and Francisqui distinguishes itself for a party atmosphere, a great balance to other cayos where you will be more seduced by tranquility and remoteness.

Just 15 minutes on boat from the Gran Roque island, francisqui is a beautiful place to go and spend the day! The beach is ideal for swimming, doing kitesurfing or snorkeling. On one side there is what locals call "the pool" where you can snorkel around watching marine life. There is a restaurant where you can have lunch if it is not included in the boat ride. The view is awesome, so don't forget your camera!!!

The water is crazy (you can see 3 diferent colors in the same place) unbelivable!!!!.. is just 5 minutes from the gran roque, so is the best option if you have a tight schedule

One of the islands we visited from Gran Roque (10 minutes away by boat). It has a wind and kite surf school and rental service. Nice place also to rest or to snorkel. Bring sun block and mosquito repellant!

one of the closest beach/island options from Gran Roque - has a strip of beach and beautiful crystal clear turquoise water. Also a restaurant with great food. But be aware that biting flies and some other sort of really tiny biting insect start to appear in the afternoons (I was there in Aug, no idea if it's year-round). Sitting in the water seemed to help
