What to do on Margarita's Beaches
Beaches are, were, and will always be Margarita's first attraction. Whatever your expectations. From a calm, crystal-like extension of peaceful waters, to the curved-wavy tided, perfect for surfing, windsurfing and other groovy water sports. Lonely or crowded, all of them with white sand, beaches for everybody from the whole wide world.You can journey through winding canals and lagoons on wooden boat tours throughout these waters. You will see schools of colorful fish and a variety of shore birds including pelicans wading for their meals.
Organized tours are available to take you through the small towns and villages throughout Margarita. Spanish churches and forts, colonial castles, beautiful beaches and tropical valleys dot the countryside. For a change of pace, visit Los Roques National Park for snorkeling and swimming and don’t forget to experience the speed sailing along the beach at Coche Island – a day trip from El Yaque by boat. You can also get hairbraiding done at Playa el Agua and at most other beaches. Ladies are always sitting by with a chair and their signs with their prices listed.

Top less or top free, Nude sunbathing .....

Isla de Margarita is frequented by European visitors, so topless sunbathing is common here. Topless sunbathing has been seen often even on the decks of cruise ships visiting the islands. Nude beaches are plenty ...especially up in the Macanao area too. Many tourists on Margarita are perfectly comfortable with going topfree on the numerous beaches. The beaches are not especially designated as 'topless', and in fact, the locals usually use the top, but people don't think anything special about topless tourists - nobody seems to be bothered by it. Many do so at Playa el Agua. And, of course breastfeeding in public is a no-big-deal type of thing also. You will often see local people nursing their babies in buses, in waiting halls, stores, beach, etc.
