The Venezuelan Isla Margarita is one of the Small Antilles and was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1498. This Caribbean island is an insider tip for sun-starved, this includes the sandy beaches of the island as the worlds most beautiful. Those who decide for a vacation on Isla Margarita decide for a beautiful coastline, picturesque town, an excellent cuisine and nice variations of landscapes and everything on Caribbean flair!
The sandy beaches of Playa El Agua and Playa Parguito in the northeast of Isla Margarita are a paradise for leisure willing sun-bathers, but also active sportsmen can be pleased here, because of the wide range of well-developed beaches including water sports like jet skiing, waterskiing or motorboat rides. For surfers, however, El Yaque in the south of the Eilands is a good address, and it is considered as one of the leading Windsurfing spots in the world. The famous beaches of Juan Griego in the north of Isla Margarita are beautiful sunsets. Juan Grigo is a small town with few good restaurants, directly on the beach. In each small beach shop or boutique a little holiday gift from the Isla Margarita could be found.
Absolutely worth seeing is a very attractive scenic Laguna de la Restinga, which also is located in the west like the desert-kind and only sparsely populated peninsula Macanao. Actually, the landscape and nature of the small island is fascinating: Meager landscape intersperses with jungle, plus cliffs, palm trees and vegetation bays throughout the white sandy beaches.
Who wants to discover Isla Margarita, can most easily do it by package tour. Perhaps you can find a good last-minute offer! Because the infrastructure of the island is well developed, an exploration is easy.
