Punta Arena Beach, Margarita Island

(3.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Spend a day in the warm waters at Punta Arena Beach. This long and wide beach remains popular because of its secluded nature and lack of crowds. Warm waters that remain calm most days make the beach a nice place for families. Umbrellas and beach chairs are available for rent, and you can bring your own food or grab some local fare at the stands near the water. You'll find a pinguinera on private land near the beach, so wander that way to see penguins resting on rocks.

  • It is a beach that are visiting within the route of beaches on the island since it has its charm. It is very good to have a good time, enjoy the waves, wind and its landscapes.

  • Amazing Beach located a bit far from the center of Margarita. The path is an attraction where you pass beside the crystal-clear sea for almost the entire route. On the Beach offers stalls and restaurants with varied menu. With small waves and water fun! Super recommend.
