Welcome to Juangriego
One of the nicest and most low-key beach towns on the island, Juangriego is famous for its burning sunsets. Set on the edge of a dramatic bay in the north of the island, it’s a relaxing place to hang out on the beach, with rustic fishing boats, visiting yachts and pelicans. Nearby beach options are Playa La Galera, within easy walking distance and favored by locals, and the lovely Playa Caribe, 10 minutes away by taxi. When the sun sets over the peaks of Macanao far off on the horizon, the hillside Fortín de la Galera is the place to watch the blazing show.
Por puestos only arrive from Porlamar, so take a taxi from Punta de Piedras (US$3) or the airport (US$2).
