The beach has great white sand but it is a pay t o play beach. It took forever to get to it. We must have driven down this road for 10 minutes before getting to what looked like a parking lot in dirt/rock. When we made it to the beach there was a sign to pay 10 guilders per person... More

The food and drinks were good. The beach was beautiful and spacious. We had just left an overcrowded beach so this was a nice change. They even had live music which was a nice added bonus.

Was a bit more touristy but for me it was the most beautiful beach I visited in Curaçao. The colour of the water is just like in the best ads of tour operators. Nice restaurant, dive shop, secured parking. Highly recommended if you like exotic beaches.

Porto Mari has one of the nicest beaches with a great bar and restaurant. Enjoy the sunset while having a drink and a bite. The floating raft is great to play with and the snorkelling is awesome.

This beach is just amazing. The water was so clear. Enough lounge chairs and not a crowded beach. The bar there offers great food and drinks of course. If going to the island this beach is a must!

The view to the beach is priceless. Enough shade and beds, even on a Sunday. The bar and restaurant is nice and exactly... More

This was a shallow good snorkel beach. Lots of small fish but a great variety. We saw fish from the moment we stepped into the water. My son enjoyed the floating platform..jumping into the water. Would have liked to spend more time at beach.

I'm not even sure where to begin describing Porto Mari. The views are truly stunning. The beach is so picturesque, the snorkeling is phenomenal, I really can't say enough about the beauty and grander. This was a cruise excursion that we booked and it ranks as one of our favorites. They have a great restaurant and bar right on the... More
