Isla Coche, Margarita Island

4.6
Discover your own beach paradise at Isla Coche, first discovered by Western explorers in 1498, when Christopher Columbus landed ashore. Settled by Venezuela in the 19th century, the island is now a great destination for visitors looking to enjoy tropical beach life away from masses of tourists. Keep an eye out for wildlife like donkeys, horses, and pelicans roaming the beaches. Bring plenty of sun protection, as much of the sparsely vegetated island offers little shade. Plan your visit to Isla Coche and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Margarita Island vacation generator.

    It is a beautiful beach with sand as white as the color of sugar. The water is warm and calm, ideal for bathing with children.
