Add To Plan

Take off in a 4-wheel drive vehicle for an adventure on the island’s more arid western side, where you will linger at the beach for hours.

After a brief orientation at the pier on traveling by land cruiser, you will board a 4-wheel-drive vehicle and drive due west to the narrowest part of Isla de Margarita. After passing pristine La Restinga National Park, you will enter Macanao peninsula, a largely uninhabited part of Isla de Margarita.

A good portion of the road on the peninsula is unpaved and irregular, and a land cruiser is the best means to negotiate the terrain. As you traverse the semi-desert landscape, you will pass a striking central mountain range and large expanses of cacti. Look closely and you may spot songbirds, yellow-shouldered parrots, deer and even goats. That’s the beauty of this land; it may look barren and yet it’s full of life and activity.

Still, it’s the beaches that attract most visitors, and Punta Arenas at the island’s westernmost tip is spectacular. It’s also one of the longest stretches of sand, as the dune-bordered beach wraps around the island’s point or “punta.”

During your time here, you are free to enjoy the setting as you please. You might stroll the shoreline gathering shells, swim in the typically calm waters, or settle back in a comfortable chair with a cool drink. Following this relaxing beach break, you will drive off toward the nearby fishing villages before traveling back to the pier.

Please note: Walking on this tour is mainly at the guests’ discretion. At the beach there will be sandy surfaces to negotiate. Guests must be agile enough to enter and exit the vehicle with limited assistance. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns and off-road like conditions make this tour unsuitable for those with back or neck problems. A swimsuit worn under a cover-up; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; a towel from the ship; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Those who take part in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.
