How far is the nearest swimable beach?
And is there buses that go there?
There is a public swimming hole walking distance form the hotel. Its not exactly a beach, but its sandy and people do swim there. Exiting the hotel turn right and follow the back street all the way to the end. Its by the pier
There is an option which worked for me. Across the Pontoon bridge you have the Reinassance Hotel which has a very nice artifical beach. For a fee you have access to it.
We were island hopping and stayed closed to the hotel. Didn't get to the beach in Curacao, sorry not helpful on this one.
