We went by boat to this unique little island which is definetely worth the trip. There are 2 nice hotels there too. Some beach bars and cafes. Very beautiful white beach with pelicans, horses, donkeys. Cute. A few surfers and almost no other people. Heaven. But certainly not for the owners of the bars and hotels.The water is cristal clear... More

You should visit this attraction. Boats leave from Margarita every day to be there, on the middle of the way, stop for snorkeling, and then continuos until this paradisiac island. If you have just one day on this island we don't recommend the bus tour by the island.

Excellent location to spend a day, no more than that. Beaches and water is quite marvelous, but hotels and restaurants are very poor.

Sure, it's nice.. nice clean beach and the "island" feel to it is neat, but it wasn't "perfect". It's not your picture perfect blue water/sand beach. However, the beach is very nice (9.3/10). However, the resort (hotel paradise) is fairly good for venezuelan standards but NOT for North American standards. Sanitary protocols are most certainly not being followed. But definitely... More

Even though it's technically not on Isla Margarita. But this is #1 without question, and El Yaque is #2. The others were a little disappointing. We should have come here again. Didn't take a day tour; just bought a round trip boat ride from El Yaque, which was quite an experience. Get there early if possible to get the best... More

It was our first time to isla coche but the boat ride was amazing, great party atmosphere....I kept thinking how lucky we were to be here....the island is small but very beautiful with clear blue water and white sandy beaches. My boyfriend and I took the dirt bike tour to part of the island....loved every minute of it..

The service at the beach was good too.. It was fantastic for a couple day getaway! Its near from the yaque beach you just have to... More
