Playa El Yaque, Margarita Island

4.4
#1 of 90 in Outdoors in Venezuela
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.

  • Go to this beautiful beach at 1eras in the morning, between 8 and 10 in the morning is certainly a luxury that many should give us. At that time you have the beach in splendor and with an intractable peace. A walk with your partner or with your pet, you would be great, I recommend it for your mental hygiene...

  • Perfect point for kite and wind surfers. A very international spot also
  • Nice windy beach
  • Nice beach, lots of activities and restaurants. Relatively safe. Friendly staff.
  • 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
  • Great Place to spend a Week end
