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. Make Isla Coche a part of your Margarita Island vacation plans using our Margarita Island trip itinerary planning app .

  • It is a very quiet beach, snorkeling can be done, the cost of the tour is $15, on the way the dolphins surrounded the catamaran and play. Very nice to observe within the path of the car Island to isla margarita. I recommend that you go it's full day

  • We went with my boyfriend and we loved it. We arrived by boat and we stayed at the hotel SunSol Punta Blanca, particularly played us cute daily. The island is quiet, but you have many activities to do, either trip to salina, tour of the island, the people, boat ride (with Alejandro and women, are a few geniuses! don't miss it) diving, etc. The beaches are very extensive sand fine and white, the Sun is very strong and there is much wind, but there are canopies for you can take shelter. The sunsets are incredible. It is ideal to rest and relax.
