Nice small lagun

We came here at our rond trip and we swam here and Saw turtles, and a murene. Small cosy place, with a restaurant nearby. Not very crowded.

About a 40 minute interesting drive from Marriott. Beautiful cove snorkeling excellent. I heard that there were turtles, but I did not see them. It was Easter so there were families in tents on the beach that day. We climbed the stairs to the apartment for an interesting perched view with great food. Bathroom strange , but whole vibe was...

Small beach that isn't too rocky. There are a ton of fish to see and if you get lucky you might see a sea turtle.

Lagun is a very nice non-commercial beach where you can relax and spot turtles around 16:30 - 19:00 while snorkling. This makes this beach very interesting for sea creature spotters/lovers. There is a restaurant with a fabulous vieuw from above. Diving is also available at this beach.

The beach was visually interesting. It consists of a 50 yard wide sand beach with calm waters, flanked by cliffs on both sides. The walls continue 150 yards out to the open sea. For the sunbather, plenty of direct sun with a cool cross breeze. For the snorkeler, there is a good number and variety of fish. The underwater topography... More

We were in Curacao on a cruise in early February 2015. We wanted a new snorkel spot and chose Playa Lagun. You will want a car rental to reach this spot from Willemstad based on the travel time. We were here for the water so we dropped our gear and headed straight out. As you enter the water the right... More

We didn't come for hanging out at the beach so can't comment on that. But for snorkeling, we went to 4 places along Westpunt and this is our 2nd best. Many fishes and calm water as it's in a protected bay. Top spot is in an area where we stayed in a vacation rental in a private community near Cas... More

We came to Curacao for snorkeling. This was one of the two best sites we visited (the other was Groote Knip). Follow the advice of others: hang to the right along the wall and go out at least to the point. In addition to lots of fish, we saw an alligator-patterned black and white eel. There's not a lot of...

A little crowded during week, it's almost too crowded during the week-end. The best snorkelling was on the right side.
