Kite Surf Venezuela
pdf   print   email  

Located just off the Venezuelan coast Margarita has become renowned for outstanding kitesurfing with its reliable wind from November to June.

Ideal for groups of mixed abilities and those that just want to blast! Combine this with a Latin American ambience, tropical weather, a sandy beach and generally good value.Please note that during Semana Santa Holiday (April 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th) El Yaque Beach gets really crowed with local people who are partying in front of the center. Because of this and as well for safety reasons the centers will close on these dates.

The island itself has a varied landscape; the 10 minute transfer from the airport is through the dry scrubland that surrounds El Yaque. In the centre, the mountains rise to 900 metres and are covered in tropical vegetation. Around the north are pretty little villages, cliffs and more dramatic scenery. Over in La Restinga, most of the area is national park with mangrove swamps and long beaches.

The Kite Surf Spots:

EL YAQUE - MAIN SPOT: From the beach you can see Coche in the distance. If you like blasting on really flat water, then Coche is a dream! The wind blows off shore across the salt flats and beach, creating a perfect speed track that runs along the beach edge - it is like kiting on silk! There is a safety boat always on the look out should you start to drift too far offshore or have any problems so it is super safe. There are 4 to 5 boat trips per day between El Yaque to Coche, this can be a rather wet crossing, so be prepared! The very reasonable ferry ticket includes the cost of boat cover for kiters! Alternatively you can stay on Coche at the Coche Paradise Hotel - a very good standard relaxing all inclusive resort.

COCHE ISLAND: From the beach you can see Coche in the distance. If you like blasting on really flat water, then Coche is a dream! The wind blows off shore across the salt flats and beach, creating a perfect speed track that runs along the beach edge - it is like kiting on silk! There is a safety boat always on the look out should you start to drift too far offshore or have any problems so it is super safe. There are 4 to 5 boat trips per day between El Yaque to Coche, this can be a rather wet crossing, so be prepared! The very reasonable ferry ticket includes the cost of boat cover for kiters! Alternatively you can stay on Coche at the Coche Paradise Hotel - a very good standard relaxing all inclusive resort.

CUBAQUA ISLAND If you want to get away from the crowds then take the 1 hour boat ride to Cubaqua Island. Here you will generally have the spot to yourself with clean side / side on shore wind, relatively flat water, and most importantly, a deserted beach. Many of the centres run day trips to CubaAqua so just ask along the beach in El Yaque. We travelled with the Planet Windsurfing Centre which made for an excellent day.

LOS ROQUES: This must be one of the most beautiful places in the world - a plethora of tiny islands surrounded by turquoise water makes for a truly magical place. Los Roques is access by an hour flight from either Margarita or Caracas. The wind here is not as reliable as on Margarita with the best month being March to June. We recommend Los Roques for those seeking a romantic few days in a beautiful setting perhaps added to the end of a main holiday to El Yaque, Margarita. Please note that Los Roques is for intermediate to advanced kiters only as there is professional kite school here. Boat cover can be arrange as part of you daily trip to one of the main islands that make up this archipelago.

Other activities:

There are a hand full of beach bars in El Yaque and it is a very pleasant spot just to hang out although please be aware, apart from the locals that descend in their hundreds over the local holidays, this resort is set up just for the sport. Margarita is a good-sized island though and if you venture out of EL Yaque (rent a motorbike or take a taxi) you will find a busy local town with modern shopping malls and some good restaurants. Most centres also offer other activities such as surfing, horse riding and mountain biking .

For the more adventurous a trip to the main land of Venezuela can make for a memorable experience; there is so much to see but with limited time we would suggest either a trip to Angel Falls (can be done in a day) or the Andes....wow !
