The famous Pirate Island
The Island of Tortuga, which in fact is one big Island and 3 smaller ones, is located some 50 miles west of Isla Margarita.
This Island used to be a hide out place for Piratas during the 17th. century, but today it is uninhabited with some fishermen living here in the fishing season. It is a beautiful Island with long white sand beaches and lots of interesting bays and places to visit.
This map was found in the Archivos National de Venezuela, it shows a Dutch fortress from 1668, well protected on the high plain, with its natural harbor in front.
Tortuga has some of the most beautiful bays on the south shore only a few persons have been there. A calm day and a good dinghy is important since there is no anchorages for bigger boats.
In the revolution time with Simon Bolivar, treasures was hidden by rich Spanish families here, in an attempt to save their most valued treasures, many big anchors can be found here and a wooden chest was found there 5 years ago with silver plate by the local fishermen, its the only Venezuelan Island where sweet water can be found in natural caves.
