#1 of 124 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.

  • It is a beach enough withdrawal from porlamar but worth a go, it is super quiet, ideal temperature and the atmosphere is divine. I recommend 100% go to the yaque Beach!

  • During a business trip, I gave myself a hiatus to spend 2 days in Porlamar but had not given me chance to go to the beach and given that my flight was leaving at 4 pm, took advantage of the morning to buy and make scales in Playa El Yaque justito beside the airport. A quiet, without waves, ideal beach for water sports where the wind, with services of tarpaulins, food and drink in all the border takes advantage. There are possibilities of lodging in very colorful guest at different prices that is adapted to all budgets. There is also a service of shuttle bus from the Centre of Porlamar. I had a divine day!... regretting having to back me and realized me the hour, was going to reach the airport, site which I almost got that by distilling sea water, oiled, in shorts, swimwear since... hurry and delayed with some delay , but happy to have spent a beautiful day ⛱

  • The wind is what describes this beach, ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing, from that you get to see it, and is recognized precisely for the ideal for the practice of these sports. There are several hotels and you can spend the day there perfectly, because they sell what you need. Is via the airport

  • Of the six beaches we visited in Margarita Island this was my favorite. The beaches were clean, service was friendly and the ocean wasn’t too rough.
  • Great beach but lacks security
  • A very beautiful and pleasant beach. The atmosphere is very sport but also to pass u rich day at the beach. The breeze Penza is strong but there is no strong waves
