Playa el Yaque, 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.
