It is one of the closest cayo from Gran roque and is by nature quite packed as everyone goes there! The water is lower than other area so you wont be able to swim. I would recommend it for the pictures and few hours but not for the day

Francisky is one of the two nearest island to Los Roques. It takes about 10 minutes by boat. If you have booked a posada all including its usually includes the transport to two islands Fransisky and Madresky. The water is cristal clear and the sand is coral white absolutely and the snorkeling at the lagune is amazing.

To get to the key you must travel in a boat typical of the place is charming, the waters are clear, clean, warm, you see the little fish swimming in your environment, very beautiful.

One of the closes beaches to Gran Roque in Los Roques is Francisqui and I have to say is just magical, the colors of the water and the location makes this particular beach to be a place to enjoy

There are few places in the world that match the beauty of its white sandy beaches, blue emerald waters of los Roques. Small islands with no one, reasonable $ prices and one hours flight from mainland Venezuela. Bone fishing, kite surfing and great snorkeling, plus very few cloudy days make it a sports/sun seeking paradise. Be careful with sun exposure... More

I close my eyes, and I feel the sun gently touching my skin, and the wind refreshing my soul at this beautiful island! You have to go to the natural pool at the back to do some snorkelling!

It is hard to say which beach/cayo is the best in Los Roques, but Francisqui is definitely the best beach with a restaurant on it. We spent plenty of time in the water there, but when we wanted something to eat and drink we went to the little open air restaurant that is right on the beach. Cuba libres, cervesas,... More
