    El Yaque is recognized worldwide as one of the top 7 spots for the practice of Kite and Windsurfing. The wind is steady and parallel to the beach. The beach is wide, the water is shallow and the air has on average a pleasant temperature of 30 ° C. These conditions are mixed on the island of Margarita and offer us the perfect spot, both for beginners and for experts.

    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
