  • Best place for kitesurfing!!!
  • Best windy beach in the world.
  • Excellent beach for windsurf
  • This beach is located between the 100 best of Venezuela, since when does breeze is ideal for water sports such as surfing, skite surfing, sailing... among others. It is also known for the nightlife by bars, restaurants and accommodations located near the beach. Hotels put reflectors on the night, pointing to the beach, so people stay up late and full moon there is no better place to be, addition to it is another Rumba super beaches of Margarita. Being a very touristy area, accommodation prices are high from our point of view. There are some restaurants in the area, offering rooms equipped by lower prices.

  • It is a warm and quiet beach, few waves, ideal for sharing family throughout the day. Is full of tourist services, hotels, restaurants, beach, Wind and Kite surfing, rental services and guest bars, etc. It is a beach with the ideal environment for sharing among groups of friends, however, it is important to arrive early since it is very crowded and after a while, you feel that all the people of the island are on the beach. The sunsets from this point are incredible!
