El Agua no longer seems to be the most happening beach on Isla Margarita. Its main appeal is its sheer length. But as with the other beaches on the island the sand isn't pure white in colour. Nice enough place for a swim.

It's a nice beach, probably the best one of the island. I went there in a rainy day, so I couldn't enjoy the beach so much. I just took a walk and found it very beautiful. I guess if you are in Isla Margarita, this is not a beach you want to miss.

We stayed walking distance from Playa del Agua, and if you do this- I highly recommend renting a car. Personally, I think Playa el Agua was a nice area to stay in, but it was nice having a car in order to visit other beaches, see other parts of the island, and find places to eat at night. We would...

One of the most popular beaches of Margarita, a must see even though in my opinion not the best. Wave are quite big sometimes and dangerous for those who cannot swim..! Posadas and restaurants are available!

Likes: Good overall beach. Blue waters, great water temp and wind keeps the bugs away. Friendly staff and vacationers. Dislikes: Trash in some areas (although was very happy see vendors going out of their to randomly pick up trash and put it in the proper cans, haven't seen this elsewhere in the Carib). Food from restaurants was so-so, but the... More

We came off season so the beach was dead. I would strongly recommend this beach. Its clean and not as run down as some of the others. The economic hit to island is visible everywhere but its still got its charm. I wish I could remember the place we ate every day but I can't! Jose, the head waiter, was... More
