I was at Margarita Island in March. It is a beautiful place; turquoise beaches, white sand, warm tropical climate. It also has all the services and attractions that you would expect from a major capital city, so you can enjoy shopping, nightlife and take advantage of bargains to be found in a free port, such as Margarita Island is.
Playa El Agua is one of the most famous beaches on the Margarita Island. It's famous firstly because it is huge, secondly because of the many entertainment options for all ages and finally because it is undoubtedly the "meeting point" for many people. The best time to go is during Holy Week, when they have concerts on the beach, surfing competitions (when you must be careful of the waves and not go in too deep) and finally, in the summer when the beach is full of young people across Venezuela and other parts of the world and becomes a "big party". Although, you have to walk almost to the end of the beach to avoid being among families and children running around.
As for food service and restaurants, there are many at the top of the beach where you can eat the typical "fried fish with tostones" (the green plantains fried plantains are sliced and fried and flattened and puts them over a salad of cabbage with carrots, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard and grated white cheese). There is also the option of carrying a cooler (or champagne) with food or drink that however ultimately depends on the shops that carry water, beer, soft drinks, a drink called "cocada" made beating meat coconut milk, sugar and crushed ice and much that is simply exquisite. If you fancy something sweet, the best is the "canned coconut", but there are other options like "back to life", the "broken mattress" etc . On the web page that I have there is a list of hotels near this beach ... but I can't comment because every time I went I stayed home with family of friends.
This is a pretty little beach in Costa Rica. The experience becomes a desire beyond what one seeks. It's an exquisite place for beach lovers. It's a very cozy beach with a breathtaking view, where a sunset captures all the love of creation, and where the sun, the breeze and the beautiful scenery unite in the ideal place full of the universe's beauty. I also think it's ideal for writers or readers because it's full of inspiration where you can create your own world among the unparalleled beauty. You will fall in love with the breeze, the sun and the sea view.
Determined to find a better place to start over I came to the island of Margarita and asked a friend to show me around it. Over one day we walked around the entire island with our children. One of the greatest gifts God has given me is to see sunset at Juan Griego, from the Fort, built in 1811 to protect the island, its history and its pearls. Since then, its colours, its lights, its smells and its history have seduced me to the point that I now live on the island and every step I take it confirms that I made the right choice, I let its influence guide me and here I am.
Parguito Beach is a beach where young people love to go to surf. It's the most popular island in the area. It has restaurants with awnings and some vendors are there selling things, too. At one end of the beach there is a small hill where you have a beautiful view of the beach. Make sure you enjoy the pretty seashells! ;-)
Here I have added some pictures of sunsets in the island of margarita (Venezuela). I think they are the most beautiful and interesting sunsets I have ever seen, these sunsets invite you to visit the island of Margarita.
Venezuela is charming, friendly, cheerful and welcoming. The La Restinga, has an unique landscape which you can travel through on a small dinghy, through the beautiful mangroves where you will find small tunnels . A beautiful journey through nature.
This evocative name is a natural park of 1,670 hectares about 11 km from the [poi = 72204] Laguna de la Restinga [/ poi]. It consists of dry forest, semi-desert landscapes and mangroves (since it has three saltwater lagoons that are named Punta de Piedra, Boca de Palo and Laguna de Raya). "Tetas de Maria Guevara" are two twin hills in this park, considered a Natural Monument, 135 meters tall, protruding from the vast plain, visible from anywhere, shape reminiscent of a woman's breasts. Maria Guevara was a very pretty mestizo popular with local fishermen.
The Tyrant is one of the beaches of Nueva Esparta state in Venezuela, specifically on the island of Margarita. The very bright sun and the clear water are the framework of economic and cultural activity. Island fishermen moor their boats on the beach while counting the hawl of fish and octopus.
The Macanao Peninsula is located on the west side of the Island of Margarita, attached to the large sand tongue [poi = 72204] La Restinga National Park [/ poi]. It is the most unspoilt and less populated part of Margarita Island, but there aren't roads, just unpaved dirt roads, so it is common to do a road tour, hiring a guide from one of the many companies. I had fun, we went in several jeeps, and the drivers were very excited young boys who made the trip very enjoyable, even making competitions between them, to see who got more difficult paths or beat the others. The jeeps were convertibles which was great because with the potholes it was almost impossible to stay seated. This tour isn't recommended for people with back problems. One of the most beautiful views I remember was a pristine beach that contrasted with the semi-desert landscape that was behind it. The tour ended in a break of a couple of hours at the[poi = 72211] Punta Arenas Beach[/ poi].
After a day in the boat we sailed by the [poi = 72204] Laguna La Restinga [/ poi] and by 4x4's [poi = 72207] Macanao Peninsula [/ poi], we end with a short break at the beach Punta Arenas. This is not easily accessible, located in the extreme southwest of Macanao, we were able to access it by jeep. It is a pristine beach, but now with tourism, there are sunbeds and parasols and a snack bar with toilets. It is considered one of the most beautiful of Margarita. It measures 1.5 km long, and has fine white sand, with abundant sea shells, corals and starfish. Its waters are clear and shallow.
An hour by boat from Playa El Yaque is Cubagua Island. Site of the first city founded in Venezuela. New Cadiz, thrived on the exploitation of pearls but ended due to overexploitation and an earthquake. Today it's amazing place to walk in peace and contact with nature.
This pier, called "Indian Marin" is the starting point to visit the La Restinga Lagoon National Park. This is where the tours are contracted by the waterways of the lake, which are made in small picturesque wooden boats with capacity for six to eight people. There are about 90 boats, the crossing takes about 45-50 minutes in which mangroves are travelled over five channels, two tunnels and two seats, which have been curiously christened with names like "Channel kiss", "Garden of my love "," Love Paradise "," Square Bella Vista "," Channel Maria Guevara ", etc.. Opening hours are from seven in the morning until five in the evening. Prices are16 euros for the hire of the boat.
The La Galera Fort is a place where every evening seems magical. First you see the sun set slowly generating many colors and then turn around to the east and you see the lights reflected in the water bay and if the moon is coming out at the same time it'll leave you bewitched.
We went on the boat early to see the herd of dolphins, it is very difficult to capture images because they are very fast, but my friend managed to film a little. Beautiful creatures, They reminded me of Flipper, and that they were only there. Venezuela also has these beautiful dolphins! They come in droves as if they were in military formation.
