Photographer's Note

The paradise exists, at least for the people that loves the beach. It's Los Roques, a small venezuelan archipielago, north from Caracas.

The Los Roques islands are a federal dependency of Venezuela, consisting of about 350 islands, cays or islets. The archipelago is an atoll located 80 miles directly north of the port of La Guaira, and is a 40-minute flight. Being almost an untouched coral reef, it attracts many visitors, especially from Europe, some of which come in their own yachts and anchor in the inner, protected shallow waters. However, development and tourism are controlled.

Because of the wide variety of seabirds and rich aquatic life, the Venezuelan government declared Los Roques a National Park in 1972.
