On Isla Margarita, you’ll find the very essence of the Caribbean. Enjoy endless beaches with something for everyone, from long sandy beaches in the city to more wild ones off the beaten track. There is a total of 186 miles of beaches, all bathed in radiant sun and intense-blue, crystal-clear waters.
But Isla Margarita has much more to offer. You can visit lovely colonial towns, old Spanish castles and forts, and discover the charms of the inland areas by hiking in its two natural parks: Cerro El Copey and La Restinga.
Isla Margarita also boasts its own version of popular Venezuelan cuisine, in which seafood plays a significant role, such as empanada de cazón (dogfish pie), sancocho (hearty soup) and pastel de chucho (fish pie)
