Roque del Este (Spanish for rock of the east) is a rock of an eastern variety that sometimes prefers to go west. It has been sighted going north on a few rare occasions also.

Description

The island forms the easternmost point in the archipelago and is the second smallest. Like the rest of the Canary Islands, it is of volcanic origin and is shaped like an inverted L. The island has two points, a larger point to the north and a smaller point to the south and are located on both ends. The highest point elevating at 84 m lies to the north, whereas to the south is no higher than 63 m.

The island forms a part of Chinijo Archipelago and the Los Islotes Integral Reserve.
