quiet beach with calm sea

Hi. I'm going to Margarita in March and I heard that sea is quite rough (a lot of waves) on many beaches.

Can you please recommend some quiet beaches with tranquil sea?

We would prefer some beaches not in the tourist area as we don't like to have a big crowd around us. Clean water is neceessary as well :)

Thanks.

If you are coming during the period March 4 to 9 nothing will be quiet.

It's Carnaval.

Outside these dates the Island will be relatively quiet.

Playa Manzanillo and Playa Guayacan are two beaches along the north shore that can have very calm waters and are quiet. Both are beautiful beaches located inside small bays and both have beautiful views. There are some great pics to be taken at either location. These beaches are not associated with an all-inclusive hotels so don't expect to find loads of tourists; especially European or North American ones. There are some restaurants on both beaches so food and drink is available as are beach chairs available to rent. Of course you can always bring your own drinks and use towels instead of chairs.

I'm gonna say Playa Bella Vista. It's a local beach located in downtown Porlamar and it is very quiet but at the same time you have a beach bar, Macarena - formerly Miss Playas and a high quality bar/ restaurant - Pablo El Rancho. The beach is alittle more than a kilometer long. It is quiet and at the same time you're close to everything. Down the road more is Playa Concorde and is not as big but locals seem to prefer it over Bella Vista.
