Beaches, Venezuela

Many attractive, white sand, palm-packed beaches await sun worshippers in Margarita, Venezuela's largest island. Playa El Agua, on the east coast, is the most famous beach on the island. The almost 3 miles of palm-covered, white sand stretch is ideal for sunbathing and strolling, has a wide range of hotels, restaurants and food stands and every known kind of water sport is available, plus parasailing, bungee jumping and ultralight flights. The picturesque bay of Juangriego, on the north coast, is very well known for the incredible sunsets while the shallow, safe waters of El Yaque, on the south coast, is one of the five top spots in the world for windsurfing.

The lush and rarely visited Paria Peninsula in Sucre hides beautiful, isolated and not very easy to access beaches, famous throughout Venezuela because of their clear crystal waters and gold sands. Located on a former coconut plantation and boasting good snorkeling, the irresistible bay of Playa Medina is said to be Venezuela's most beautiful beach. Adjacent Playa Pui Puy is rougher and good for windsurf. The tiny and delightful, yet to be discovered by the mainstream village of San Juan de Las Galdonas is surrounded by endless white sand, palm-fringed, crystal clear water beaches in this forgotten stretch of the Caribbean Sea.

Easily reachable thanks to its closeness to Puerto La Cruz and Cumana, beach goers will be highly rewarded by one of Venezuela's most beautiful landscape in the Mochima National Park. The numberless islands, sandy coves and protected bays teem with outstanding above and underwater marine life (playful dolphins included) and contain lovely white and red sands beaches excellent for a myriad of watersports, particularly scuba diving and snorkeling, but also for sailing, yachting and kayaking.

North of Caracas, the coral islands of Los Roques Archipelago National Park offers pristine, white sand beaches of turquoise and emerald waters, the cleanest in the nation. Complement your stay with a wide range of activities like scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, yachting, fishing and kayaking.

Traverse the bio diverse cloudforests of Venezuela's first national park, the Henri Pittier, thanks to a spectacular 28 mile road to reach one of the country's most beautiful colonial towns, Choroni, and the fishing village of Puerto Colombia, from where it is possible to visit unspoiled, white sand, very attractive bays like Cepe and Chuao surrounded by coconut palms and lush hills, most of them only accessible by boat in this cocoa-growing area in which there are still haciendas and where it is still possible to experience expressions of the African-Venezuelan culture like the heart beating drums or "Tambores". Scuba diving and snorkeling tours are available. Hotel Hacienda El Portete is our preferred guesthouse.

The beautiful Morrocoy National Park, with its palm-packed coral keys, secluded beaches and calm, shallow turquoise waters is a not to be missed place in Venezuela. The sheltered waters are excellent for all things "ING": Swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, yachting, sailing, kayaking and water skiing. The adjacent Cuare Wildlife Sanctuary is a birdwatching paradise.

The quiet and laid-back Adicora, in the east face of the Paraguana Peninsula, is world renowned for its windsurfing and kite surfing and also a good starting point for excursions to the 2,674 feet high Santa Ana Hill, the only one in the peninsula, and to the Cabo (Cape) de San Roman, Venezuela's northernmost point.
