This park, which is located part in land and part in the sea (Golfo Triste), has a large number of small islands or keys like: Borracho, Pelón, Sombrero, Sal, Playuela y Peraza. Morrocoy´s beaches are excellent. But also, underneath, the corals and fishes show all their beauty to all divers.
To enjoy Morrocoy, you must visit the keys (cayos) in a boat. It can be a private boat or you can get a ride in a "peñero", a small boat that you can share with other passengers or that you can hire to take you and pick you up where you prefer. For a description of all the keys, please use this link: Interactive map.
