On the northern coast of South America, Venezuela’s warm seas and consistent winds make it a big draw for windsurfers. The coast is fringed with dreamy white sand beaches, while out in the tropical waters of the Caribbean sea, you’ll find some stunning islands perfect for Venezuela windsurfing holidays.
Most visitors to Venezuela head straight for its islands – and with good reason. With laid-back vibes and great winds most of the year, Venezuela’s islands are just about perfect for windsurfers. Margarita, known to some as the ‘Pearl of the Caribbean’ is a particular favourite, and has attracted some of the world’s top windsurfers to its shores.
On Margarita, El Yaque is the top spot for Venezuela windsurfing holidays. It has plenty of windsurfing schools and hire shops to choose from, and winds that get up to 30 knots during the December to March high season. The water is calm and flat, making it perfect for beginners and freestylers. There’s not much in the way of waves, but the wind makes up for that.
Nearby, Isla Coche has equally good conditions – or sometimes even better. It is a big favourite with flat-water enthusiasts looking for a luxury stay – Isla Coche has a decidedly upmarket feel for Venezuela windsurfing holidays.
Margarita and Isla Coche are relatively large and developed islands. If you want a Robinson Crusoe experience, head out to the Los Roques islands. This little archipelago is a sparsely inhabited marine park, with lots to explore for those up to the challenge.
