A national park in Margarita Island, Venezuela. Accessible only by boat, which is available at the Guards' Dock, by a very reasonable price. When you arrived to the beach, be ready to find a wild paradise. Cleanest beach, full of seafood. While walking in the water you will feel the cockles, oysters, and others closing under your feet.
Lying in the sun, old ladies will approach you selling seafood cocktail at a ridiculous low price.
Hope it will stay like that.

“Stunning place”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

If you're looking to be in touch with nature, explore the mangroves and enjoy the wildlife in Margarita Island, this is definitely the place to go. If you want to you can arrange with the boat drivers to leave you for a few hours in the beach at the other side of the lagoon and you'll get some of the best views of the Island on both sides.

Highly recommended and family friendly

“A gem on the island”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

La Restinga was a stop on our jeep tour. The flora and fauna are fantactic, sea horses, star fish pelicans, egrets. The captain will stop and show you the wonders along the mangrove and stop to take pictures or the beautiful scenery there. Definitely worth the trip when staying on the island

“a wonderful excursion during and excursion”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

On a jeep safari that took place all over Islas Margerita,we stopped for a ride through Parke nacional Laguna de la Restinga. It was just simply awesome and beautiful
I saw cranes, starfish ,oysters and some fish.
If you like nature and ecological diversity ,this park is well worth the trip over !
when engaging in excursions on mergarita i highly suggest using inovations plus, they are friendly , upbeat and have staff who speak English,French,Spanish,&German and that was just my rep.
if you want the best guide ever just ask for Armelle Dautruche ,she is a gem
