Geography[edit] The federal dependencies are composed of 600 islands and smaller formations; many have an area of less than 10,000 square metres and are essentially simple rocks. The largest island, La Tortuga, accounts for almost half of the territory of the federal dependencies. Dependencias Federales stretch for 900 km (560 mi) along the coast from Archipiélago Los Monjes in the west at the Gulf of Venezuela to Isla de Patos southeast of Isla Margarita at the Gulf of Paria in the east. Los Roques Archipelago Biogeographical area[edit] The World Geographical Scheme for Recording Plant Distributions groups the islands, excluding the abyssal Aves Island, into an area it calls the "Venezuelan Antilles" (Level 3 code "VNA"). Principal islands and groups[edit] These are set out below: Los Monjes Archipelago (Archipiélago Los Monjes) La Tortuga Island (Isla La Tortuga) La Sola Island (Isla La Sola) Los Testigos Islands (Islas Los Testigos) Los Frailes Islands (Islas los Frailes) Patos Island (Isla de Patos) Los Roques Archipelago (Archipiélago Los Roques) Blanquilla Island (Isla La Blanquilla) Los Hermanos Archipelago (Archipiélago Los Hermanos) Orchila Island (Isla La Orchila) Las Aves Archipelago (Archipiélago Las Aves) Aves Island (Isla de Aves) Political Map Federal Administrative Agencies numbering based on the table of islands Nr.
