Venezuela is one of the best Wind- and Kitesurf destinations in the world. Especially Margarita Island’s Playa El Yaque, Coche Island and Los Roques National Park with its crystal clear water.
El Yaque - Allround Zone
Playa El Yaque in the south of Isla Margarita offers delicious all year surf experience, no matter whether you are a skilled master or beginner.
North-east trade winds (Nov-Jan: 5 Beaufort, 17-21 knot; Feb-May: 6 to 8 Beaufort, 22-40 knot) will push you out of your bed in one of the hotels at the beach onto your board. Small waves invite for jumps and loops into the carribean sky.
The surf spot is divided into zones for windsurf and kitesurf. Kitesurfers reach the bay located at 2.5 km luv of the windsurfers with shuttle boats.
Isla Coche - High Speed Zone
From El Yaque on Isla Margarita you can reach Isla Coche - which is located just 6 km in the south - by speed boat. This small island offers ideal conditions for skilled wind- and kitesurfers. The surface of the sea is like a mirror, the shallow water is warm, the wind ist steady and strong.
Isla Coche offers no possibility for rental of kitesurf equipment, so you should bring your own equipment for your daytrip to this marvellous surf spot.
Los Roques - Kitesurfing in a Marine Park
Stunning aqua marine waters, powder white sands, deserted beaches and steady, although not very intense, wind. Los Roques is not a high wind destination like Margarita, instead offering a much more interesting and varied experience.
The wind blows with average 18 knots consistently year round.
Playa Parguito - Surfing on oceanic waves
This 1000 m long surfbeach located in the northeast of Isla Margarita offers beach breaking oceanic waves for beginners and experts, especially for bodyboard surfers. Courses are held by surf champion Colin Saunders and his team.
