Manzanillo is the most popular beach on the island amongst visitors. Playa Manzanillo is about 25 minutes by car from Porlamar, which is not far away. There are also buses that depart from the center of Porlamar.
Manzanillo is a quiet and peaceful fishing town. There are several restaurants including the famous Rosenda's restaurant. Rosenda is a very nice, kind lady who used to sell fresh fish on the road to Playa El Agua many years ago. Fish is always fresh at Manzanillo, and the prices are quite affordable. The service may be a bit slow; so, we recommend that you place your order as soon as you arrive at the beach, and let them know at what time you would like to eat.
Manzanillo's specialty is mussels.
On the beach, the water is quite cold, and some days there are no waves at all. At Manzanillo, you can hire transport to get to Playa Constanza which can only be reached by boat.
