To get to Navio Beach, you take a bumpy drive toward Media Luna beach. Once there, make a left (to the east) down an even bumpier, very narrow, and unmarked dirt road. You will dead end in Navio Beach. Navio Beach is terrific, and different...More

We kind of stumbled upon this beach by accident. We though maybe you could get to Caracas beach along the coast, but didn't consider all the bays! Anyway, I'm so glad we found it, ha! It is one of the most picturesque places I've ever...More

Picture postcard beach with turquoise water and white sand. However, the wave action is quite strong so good for boogie boarding but too rough for most waders and swimmers. I enjoyed the ten minute walk from Media Luna beach and saw some nice flora and...More

Unless you rent a Jeep you will probably have to walk to this beach. The road can be pretty rough and most rental companies don't want you to drive their vehicles to this beach unless you rent a Jeep. BTW, Media Luna beach is on...More

Navio beach is beautiful! White sand, clear blue water. It's ringed on both sides by cliffs, so there only really one way to get there by land, and that's on a very rutted, very rugged dirt road, on which only SUVs, Jeeps and pickups should...More
