nice for relaxing day out. good food available. pleasant beach and seascape. sea temperature nice for a dip but sea bed very undulating, with a lot of swell & undercurrents so only suitable for strong experienced swimmers. children need to be closely supervised. be sure to carry ID as may be requested.

Me encanta playa el agua. Cada vez que voy me relajo y disfruto la playa al máximo. MARGARITA es lo más bellos que he visto!!!!!! LO RECOMIENDO!!! I loved "playa el agua". Every time I go I relax and enjoy the beach to the maximum. MARGARITA is the most beautiful place I have ever seen!!! I totally recommend it.

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!
