“Magical tableau of lush greenery and warm waters, ringed by sandy , exquisite beaches”

Buceo en la Isla Margarita
Reviewed 20 May 2015

Sounds like the name of the ancestral home of the famous drink, but spelled differently, doesn't it?
I had heard weather reports from La Asuncion mentioning this island so while flying over the Caribbean, we see beneath us a collar of islands lush with green interior ringed by the whitish-yellow of their beaches and an outer circle of light turquoise where the sand is visible through the shallow waters of the sea.
Isla Marganta is the 'biggie' of the Minor Antilles, although at its longest it only stretches a mere 62 km, but what a bustling, exciting and beautiful place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We chose the lux Hesperia Playa el Agua as our playground on the beach.... kinda like having your own sandbox to play in to get away from the duty-free port.

It doesn't take long to shed your garb and relax in the warm waters with a cocktail at the bar, preceding and following a brisk swim. We took a day to explore Macanao and its unspoilt beaches then were driven to Manzanillo to watch amongst other things, the local fishermen unload their catch. there was terrific wind-surfing at El Yaque Beach with an excellent surf running at Parguito.

Next day we took a boat trip to Coche and Cubagua islands which was a full day of ogling the beautiful terrain while splashing about in the gentle waters, followed by a group of coral reefs, 42 to pick from, and gorgeous sandy beaches.

On our last day we boarded a penero, a small wooden, traditional local fishing boat for an excursion to the mangroves of the national park, teeming with sea and bird-life, in a magical tableau that was the crowning highlight to our Margarita Island visit
