Isla Margarita, called "The Pearl of the Caribbean", is the largest of the 72 islands of Venezuela. 

The beaches are superb and many beautiful mountains stand inland.  For the sport lovers, this is the ideal place to practice kite surf and windsurf.  Playa El Yaque is a world renowned place to enjoy many of the wind sports. 

The Macanao Peninsula, on the west, is the most remote area of the island, inhabited mainly by fishermen.
