Macanao

Norte de Macanao

The peninsula of Macanao is an extraordinary and little known place of Margarita- It is located in the west side of Margarita Island, united to the island by the national park “La Restinga”. Macanao has very few habitants, making it ideal for those persons who want to get away from big crowds or that want to tale a “breath” in the season, or also in some weekends, when the beaches in the island are usually crowded.

La Pared (The Wall), for example, is an excellent beach located in the North of the Peninsula of Macanao. In one of the sides of the beach there is even a fishermen village.

Macanao has two big attractions that make the trip of a little more than half an hour, worthwhile:

Marine Museum

The Marine Museum is to be found in the biggest city of the peninsula, Boca de Río.

The Marine Museum receives us with a gigantic whale skeleton, making the entrance the favorite place for tourist for a family photo. The museum counts with ship, fish, corals, perls, and turtles exhibitions. It has an aquarium, not very deep, where you can find “cat-sharks” and sea turtles. It also has a room sponsored by the “Fundación Polar” (Polar Fundation) that has an aquarium where you can see and touch a variety of living sea species. Visit the Marine Museum. .
