Maybe because it is scenic to see the small fishing boats, others think highly of this tiny beach. But it is crowded, the beach beds are expensive, and the snorkeling is poor except for the rocks where the scuba folks hang out. We had a good lunch at the fish restaurant there.

This is a good beach for beginning snorkelers, very little current lots of fish. It is a small cove, so an hour of easy snorkeling. The entrance is coral rubble. There is no fee to park and the best beach restaurant is here. Get the fresh fish sandwiches- outstanding and prepared to order.

Loved this beach since it is smaller and not so busy. Went to snorkel but since much of the coral is damaged we did not see many fish. Were told by scuba divers that you had to swim almost 10 minutes out to the reef to see anything. Too far for me. Had hoped to see some fish along the... More

This is a small beach with high canyon walls.On one side after climbing up cliff-side stairs you reach the Bahia restaurant with resident iguanas at the foot of your table. The beach is a safe sandy beach with easy snorkelling

This location is quiet pool-like. Nice narrow beach could use some cleaning but...it's curaçao and no better or worse than any other. Best about this beach is that it isn't a normal tourist beach like Kokomo or other contrived beaches. There are villas on either side so there are some tourist and some locals. Good thing is that the tourists... More

I actually liked this more than Klein Kinip which gets all of the praise as THE place for snorkeling. We saw tons of schools of fish, turtle, etc etc. And it's a really nice beach without too many people there, close parking, and no charge for beach entry.

We visited Playa Lagun twice as it was one of our favourite beaches. Nice for both sitting on the small beach (there is a cost for chairs, which we didn't use, but not for use of the beach) and for snorkeling. The parking lot has security as well. The Bahai Beach Bar looks down on the water and is a... More

Lagun is a cute beach, gods for snorkeling and scuba but also with great food options and an amazing view from the top bar.

My wife's one goal on this trip was to see a turtle. She literally walked right in and one was right in front of her. Beautiful cliffs on each side and a ton of fish along the base of the cliffs. We came in on a cruise, rented a car for the day and headed up here. Free parking, great... More

After visiting 12 beaches this beach is my ultimate favourite. We had an amazing snorkeling day where we've spotted a turtle, lionfish, stonefish, and many more. The beach is nice and quite, good bar for great coffee and many iguanas. Were definitely coming back here!!
