La Pelona de Dos Mosquises

(Diving in Los Roques) # 12 on map.

Level of experience: beginner to advanced

Parting from Dos Mosquises approximately one mile towards the south, we find La Pelona de Dos Mosquises which is a sand key with a coral reef of great coral mass which due to its dimensions could well be hundreds of years old. Visibility is not more than 20 meters due to the dark but nutrient rich waters of the inside sea surrounding the area. It is perhaps why the marine life is so rich and abundant fish species can be found. At the bottom of the reef anemone and lobsters decorate the bottom. Depth here goes from 8 to 15 meters.

Level of experience: beginner (B), beginner to advanced (BA), medium to advanced (MA)
