TREASURED ISLANDS Your Guide To Tropical Bliss

Just 15 miles north of Venezuela, this tiny island’s northwestern coast is where you’ll find choice locations for a retreat. Soft sand beaches and secluded coves complete this inviting picture. Be sure to plan an island tour to see the fantastic Ayo Rock Formations and picnic in privacy at Andicuri Beach near the Natural Bridge.
