Laguna de la Restinga, Margarita Island

4.4
#2 of 41 in Nature in Venezuela
Tour through the various marshes connected to Laguna de la Restinga and get an intimate look at the abundant indigenous wildlife. Set out on the salt lagoon in a boat, or join a kayak group. The cleanliness of the water makes it especially easy to spot starfish, jellyfish, and other creatures below the surface. Pelicans frequent the area, and the tours can take you up close to them. As you pass through the mangrove forests, you will likely stop at a sandy beach for a chance to explore on land. At the end, several locals peddle their wares of jewelry and snacks. Put Laguna de la Restinga into our Margarita Island trip itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • A successful change offers the ride a water taxi through the mangroves by the intricate waterways. The Laguna is a nature reserve and we saw different native birds and pelicans, starfish and the Declaration by our friendly driver Pedro. You can settle on the Shell Beach, just as one wishes. We have totally enjoyed the ride and then we shopped at the market stall tshirt and shorts to low price. Was a nice change.
