Playa El Yaque, Margarita Island

4.4
#1 of 21 in Outdoors in Margarita Island
Lined with hotels, shops, restaurants, and houses for rent, Playa El Yaque remains one of the country's premier spots for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Strong and constant wind, not very deep waters, and sunny weather throughout the year draw water sports enthusiasts from all over the world. If you wish to take a short break from surfing, hop on a boat and visit the nearby island. The east part of the beach with a small dock and banana rides, where the sea is calm, is popular among families with little children.

  • Near the Airports Santiago Marino is the shallow surf beach El Yaque. Wonderful for sports activities and to chill out. Numerous restaurants with excellent cuisine.

  • I went in low season and was the full beach of the island. Has several restaurants with wifi, I had the opportunity to eat in two places and the Shark was the best, with more variety of menus and the best price. The sea has waves well short and the water is not cold. Only downside is the amount of people offering products and services. On this beach you can buy the package to visit the island of Coche.

  • Awesome beach. It has strong winds which makes it great for practicing kite surfing and windsurfing, but the waves are quite tame and allow for a relaxing swim. There are many restaurants right next to the beach where fresh food and cold drinks are available until around 5 pm. All in all a truly enjoyable place
  • Best windy beach in the world.
  • Best place for kitesurfing!!!
  • Excellent beach for windsurf
