Noronqui islands and its coral reef make up to brilliant blue
lagoon of deep waters surrounded by several pristine beaches. In
the north coast of the western most there is a sunken ship. Sail
towards the southern side of the islands to enter between lower
Noronqui and mid Noronqui. Following the reef in mid -
Noronqui’s north coast, the depth is approximately 15 meters.
The most peaceful place is in upper Noronqui’s west side. There
are excellent beaches and the area is good for snorkeling water
To enter Crasqui from the north, pass through the sand key’s
west side which is in the northwest of Crasqui. If you come from
the southwest go around Espenqui’s south side, avoiding the reef
between Isla Agustin and Espenqui. There are several shoals
between Espenqui and Isla Larga, the best route being the south
coast of Espenqui; there the shoals are visible and you may
choose your route from among these.
In Sarqui the best anchoring ground is at the north end of the
island. There you can do bird watching or snorkeling. A ride in
dinghy up to the inside lagoon is highly advisable.
