#2 of 30 in Outdoors in Margarita Island
Walk on the gold sand of Playa El Agua, or recline on a deck chair at one of many restaurants sheltered by huge palm trees. The 4 km (2.5 mi) long strand of sand, lined with bars, restaurants, and shops, remains the most popular resort on Margarita Island, favored by locals and tourists alike. Watch the local anglers or cool off with a freshly squeezed juice or coconut milk. If you wish to take a dip, note that the seabed is quite uneven and jagged in this area, where many undercurrents can interfere with your swimming.

  • It is one of the best beaches in Venezuela with important swell, you have all the services you need and a nice place selling gift items, the beach in general very good, a little annoying with the insistence of street vendors.

  • We arrived by public transport from the central area. It is one of the most famous beaches on the island. It is approximately 4 kilometers long and is located in the north. Fine sand, warm waters, palm trees and variety of restaurants. I liked it very much, but my experience was not good. I'm very careful with the sea even though I can swim. I was with the water at the knee level and suddenly I was away from the coast and i couldn't come back, the swell was very strong, in a matter of seconds. Luckily I was able to float without despair and they helped me out, as it was impossible alone. Very careful, the lifeguard told us that it is common to take several people out in a day. I'm never going to forget about Playa el Agua.
