Not the greatest Snorkeling

Not as many fish as I would have liked. Other beaches are better for snorkeling, I found. Not crowded when we were there.

The weather was not so good that morning so the 6 of us plus our 5 month old grandson decided to explore the other side of the Island and took our costumes and snorkels just incase weather improved. We stopped here to basically have a look around and were very impressed with the lovely lay out. Decided to sit and... More

This beach was right in the backyard of our hotel, we spent a few mornings there, it gets crowded but if you arrive early you can definitely get a lounging chair and a nice spot in the sun. The shore is full of corals, as most beaches in this area are. We snorkeled and saw tons of healthy coral and... More

We tripped over this small beach when seeking a bathroom, ended up staying for lunch. Food shack seems to be run by the resort next door, surprisingly excellent, not the typical overpriced low quality beach lunch. Fish "burger" was great, got a really nice fruit plate.

We did a quick visit to Playa Kalki at the end of our day of touring. The beach was quite rocky so water shoes would be helpful. Didn't snorkel there but was told it was excellent. The restaurant charged us $4.00 American for a warm can of coke, so I would bring a picnic instead.

Without a doubt one of the best places to dive in curacao! very easy shore dive from a peer without current. very healthy coral reef and tons of fishes. The beach itself is very pretty as well. Since this is one of the most remote places in curacao (all the way to the west at approx 1.5 hours by car... More

A rather small sandy/rocky beach. A few chairs and umbrellas available. Clean and clear turquoise water. Snorkeling ok..... Crowded, especially on weekends

There is a beach cafe, a dive shop and easy access to this beach. Beach itself is mostly coral with some lounge chairs. Snorkelling is great here, water is slightly more cloudy than other locations but still a great places to enjoy the underwater marine life.

This is not a big beach but it has a few chairs and a couple shady spots and enough sand. There is a line of rather painful (on the feet), but not sharp, coral when entering the water but it is absolutely worth it. Beach is kept fairly clean and there is a snack bar just above the beach chairs... More

It's 5 naf per person to stay here and your car is with security for free. Nice bounty beach where it's quite and it's another great snorkeling spot. Make sure you swim both left and right because both gives a nice variety of fish
