Playa Medina, Cumana

4.6
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Cumana
Step onto the tropical beach paradise of Playa Medina, an area with golden sandy beaches, crystal clear azure waters, and a lush forest of coconut trees nearby. Relatively untouched, this beach boasts a palette of deep greens, pinks, and blues. The coconut trees offer abundant shade, so all you need to bring is a book and a towel. Pick up some souvenirs from the many locals selling handicrafts, and stop by one of the restaurants serving fresh seafood. A visit to Playa Medina represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cumana trip planning site to plot your vacation.

    My experience at playa medina was surprise and joy! a green mantle and shade of Palm trees cover access, where you can leave your vehicle... and it is forbidden to listen to music! that I thought was great because you can enjoy nature and the sound of the sea. The Bay is beautiful and calm, food services and the green mountains in the background. There is a posada very nice at one end, for those who like to wake up to the edge of the sea. The people are friendly and the calm sea! I recommend going out of rainy season to enjoy the Sun in his splendour.

    Sucre State, Venezuela, has a wonderful coastline. The Caribbean Sea bathes her and trimmed with amazing, crystal clear waters and clear sand beaches. A privileged sector, where live the nature to the fullest. Suitable for sport fishing. Friendly and welcoming people. I recommend it

    The best beaches of the Sucre State, must be quite manage to get and the road is something dangerous (mountain and dark) but worth it for such a magical place. Beach of cold water, and slight current.

    I consider it one of the best beaches in the country. It has all the services, is still "economic", their coconut walks are a beauty and the grass upon entering the beach as a green carpet welcomes you. All services offered are carried out by locals, who have a high respect for the beach and everything that she gives them. They have accomplished to pave the road, so it is now much more easy to reach with any vehicle. You can't go from the beach without tasting a good fried fish. There is plenty of space for parking and people who are responsible for caring for your vehicle
