It's been a few years since I've been to Margarita but I think Playa El Agua is a fantastic beach.

Jack why would you want to go to a polluted,crowded place like Isla Margarita for 20 days when you have all of the Venezuelan Caribbean to choose from?
Use some imagination man!!!
Start doing a web search there's tons of info out there and all kinds of interesting, safe and untrampled places to visit.
Lively up yourself!!!

In 20 days you can cover much of Margarita Island. There are por puesta buses running around, and the taxis are not too high.
Playa Guacuco is good for swimming and not polluted. Playa El Agua is a surfing beach favored by international tourists.
Playa El Yaque is a wind-durfing beach.
Playa Caribe has Mosquito Beach for fun activities. Playa Arena on the westernmost tip is very uncrowded - has food and drinks.
Many sights can be visited - Pampatar, Asuncion, Valle El Virgen, El Copey (the tallest mountain), La Restinga Mangrove Park, which also has beaches that are not crowded, Boca El Rio Maritime Museum, The Artisans villages, Juan Griego ( which has Ft. Galera) and lovely scenery at sunset, and for those who love to shop, Porlamar, which is crowded but has discount stores galore.
Have a good trip. We have found the people very friendly and helpful. There is a Tourist Information kiosk in the airport and also on Avenida Santiago Marino in Porlamar, which has maps. There is a bi-weekly newspaper in English - the Margarita Post, which has a web site to read before you go.
