El Yaque beach is very popular amongst people who like kitesurfing or windsurfing. The beach is windy enough and there are plenty of renting stores offering the equipment for a fair price. When you arrive there are "sharks" welcoming you and offering parasol and sand chairs for an ok price. Then is time to force you to order a "servicio"... More

Excellent place to base yourself in Margarita. Stay at Hotel El Yaque, eat there, sun bath there. It has the best service in the whole of Venezuela. Safe with all the facilities you need.

Playa El Yaque is the beach in Margarita if you're with children (like me) or if you want to practice kite surf or windsurf. I'm from the island, but I currently live abroad and I must say "Playa El Yaque" is one of my favorites. There is a great environment, it has plenty of restaurants and small nice hotels to... More

If you are looking to practice Extreme beach sports, this is the place!. This beach is located very close to the Margarita Island Airport and because of its location, makes it the safest choice on the island. If you plan to be there, choose to stay at Hotel California and ask for Jean Paul. He is the owner of the... More

I went to Margarita Island after having gone to the Morrocoy National Park and, although the beaches are different from those of Morrocoy, are really beautiful too.
