The unique geology of Isla Larga attracts many visitors every year. This island off the coast of Carabobo forms part of the surrounding national park, and falls under special administration. The south side boasts white sandy beaches, coral reefs, and mangroves, while the north differs greatly with its rough waves and rocky volcanic surface. The island is also notorious for its shipwrecks, including a German freighter named Sesostris, which sunk in 1940, and an Italian cattle boat that still shows evidence of the wooden cattle stalls. Both popular diving locations, the wrecks have amalgamated with the reefs to form an artificial harbor and foster underwater life. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Puerto Cabello holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Isla Larga and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Isla Larga reviews
If you like quiet clear waters, no waves but don't want to drive a lot, go to Isla Larga. I don't like the parking place, looks insecure, but no problems so far, thankfully. The view is spectacular... more »
This is one of the best wrecks diving sites of the world. Two large ships at shallow waters where divers can do several dives with more than 2 hours to spend in a underwater adventure. more »
Warm water and very calm. So clear. Perfect for snorkeling, do it near the shipwreck, it is deep also. It is very close from Valencia like 40 minutes. During weekends is crowded.
