The dirt path leading up to La Carmela
beach is rocky and definitely requires a 4X4 vehicle. You could also
park by the main road and hike to the beach.
Since the Macanao Peninsula (western
half of Isla Margarita) is not populated, most of the beaches in this
area are pristine and untouched. Playa Carmela doesn't have any
tourist services like at Playa
El Agua or Playa
Parguito, but it is still worth the trip.
