Nature and places of interest in the Natural Park of Los Roques.
Sarqui is actually part of the recreation area, but due to its position it is to far away for the day tour tourist, therefore being extremely attractive for sail boaters since it has a very nice beach/beaches with a small and very beautiful channel between them.
The beach at Sarqui is very pretty, protected from winds by a barrier of mangrove; one can enjoy a landscape of quiet waters, with the boats anchored behind the Island. In the evening trawling on the leeward side of the Island with the dinghy you can easily catch the dinner by yourself using just a simple lure.
Among the attracting features of this key is snorkeling in the coral reef barrier next to the channel and on the south.
Close to these keys at about 15 minutes by boat is Cayo Fernando. It is an interesting place to visit because the most important of the fishermen shacks is found there. During the lobster fishing season up to fifty persons can live in one of these shacks built of wood. The majority are from Margarita Island that are out to catch lobster with nag nets and by diving. After the lobster season some of them remain for the fishing of shark. In this key one can observe the highest mountains of Botuto shells that there are in the park some of them invaded by the mangrove vegetation. This shell sites are a proof of the importance that this resource had a little more than a decade ago and today banned due to over fishing. In the 21st century Los Roques continues being a place of close encounter with nature, with only one requisite: To love light and silence.
