Playa Punta Arenas is located on the southwest tip of the Macanao Peninsula, which is the western half of Margarita Island.

We visited the Punta Arenas beach during the Road Unlimited 4X4 Jeep tour of Isla Margarita.

Most of the Macanao Peninsula of Margarita Island is relatively deserted and unpopulated. As a result, the beaches are pristine and devoid of crowds.

There are limited but adequate services on Playa Punta Arenas including beach chair rentals, umbrella rentals, the GT (Gisela Y Tom) Restaurant, the "La Gloria" Bar & Restaurante and the Churrata De Raquel Y Gustavo.

To get to Playa Punta Arenas you'll need to either rent a car or hire a taxi. It's definitely worth taking the trip from Porlamar.
