The town of El Yaque on Margarita Island is a popular destination for windsurfing and kite surfing enthusiasts from across the globe.

Just about every day of the year, you can find dozens of international tourists learning to kite surf or windsurf. There are also usually at least a few professional windsurfers or kite surfers practicing.

El Yaque is located near the middle of the southern coast of Isla Margarita. It is one of the beaches closest to the Porlamar International Airport (PMV).

A few reasons why Playa El Yaque is so attractive to windsurfers or kitesurfers are the calm shallow waters, consistently blowing wind and year round sunshine. Margarita Island has a semi-arid climate which receives very little rain.
