On a weekday you could probably have your own piece of this long and beautiful beach. When we visited it was not as clean as Caracas but it was still very nice!

This beach is quieter than Sun Beach, and just as nice! The water is very clear and full of little fish.

Spent 2 afternoons here. Beautiful beach. Water was stunning. I suggest you take a picnic lunch and cooler with drinks. Loved this beach.

I would definitely get a car on the island if you can, you will need the 4-wheel drive.
