Located just to the north of and belonging to Venezuela, Margarita Island is a tropical Caribbean paradise. And, the island isn’t known as the Island of Pearls for nothing. Its beaches are as beautiful as anywhere in the Caribbean region and, like same, many are tourist hotspots, well developed and well facilitated. For somewhere off the well beaten track, head to the extreme west of the island to the stunning scenery of Macanao. The beach is calm, quiet and divine.
