Must see · Beach · Outdoor Activity
Discover your own beach paradise at Coche Beach, first discovered by Western explorers in 1498, when Christopher Columbus landed ashore. Settled by Venezuela in the 19th century, the island is now a great destination for visitors looking to enjoy tropical beach life away from masses of tourists. Keep an eye out for wildlife like donkeys, horses, and pelicans roaming the beaches. Bring plenty of sun protection, as much of the sparsely vegetated island offers little shade. Make Coche Beach a part of your Coche Island vacation plans using our Coche Island trip itinerary planning app.

  • Peacefully & Stunning Island, less than 20k habitants; amazing views and landscapes, good density of wildlife, the folks around are friendly as you would imagine from a Venezuelan Island. Electricity and potable water do not scarce in the hotels. There are a Salt Mine, that has some Pink coloured Salt Cristals that looks awesome. In the highest Point there's a Lighthouse from where you can clearly view the MainLand & Margarita Island. You can pay for a guided tour around the Island (or be a good hiker and just walk around its a safe place) or rent a boat to Cubagua Island from here.
  • Remote yet awesome place to visit, make sure you spend some time exploring the pink salt lake.
