One of the most peculiar beaches in Margarita is El Yaque. It is located behind the Margarita Airport, approximately 5 minutes from it. Windsurfers and families with little children are very common there. It has a lot of wind, calm waters and not very deep.


We could really say that El Yaque is divided in two beaches. The first one you find is the Eastern Beach, one of the favorite of the families with little children, because it a safe beach, no waves and very calmed. In one of the edges of the beaches there is a dock where kids like to jump and where the banana trips start.
