Beautiful small beach suitable for beach diving. The reef is very nice and easy to dive on. The beach it's self has got a bit busy during the years because of hotel and resorts in the area.

Intimate little beach with beautiful view. Restaurants close by and nominal charge for lounge chairs which include a beer and use of the restroom facilities up the stairs. Going to the cliff top highly recommended as the view is even more spectacular from there. Snorkeling was great here too.

The lagun ( lagoon ) was a great place to snorkel. The water was always calm and the snorkeling was good on both sides of the rock cliffs. For divers, there are 2 equipment stores and dive instructors nearby. In the lagun we saw turtles, pipefish, parrotfish, and even one manta ray at the mouth of the lagun.. Also 2... More

On a recent trip to Curacao, my husband and I snorkelled 3 or 4 times at Playa Lagun. As with many of the beaches at this end of the island, it is small and in a cove, but the snorkelling here was quite enjoyable, with lots to see. We found swimming along the cliffs on the left side of the... More

This is a very short beach inside a cove with 30 foot cliffs and crystal blue water. The 3 foot iguanas are very interesting to see but a bit disconcerting as they scamper right next to you. We bought fresh tuna off of the fisherman boats as they came in around noon. 14 Guilders ($8) for one kilo of absolutely... More

One of my favorite locations for snorkeling in Curacao. We have been there multiple times, and each time is unique, but consistantly good. Large diversity and volume of fish, and we have regularly seen BIG schools of fish and the biggest schools of squid we've seen anywhere. Coral is OK at best. Very easy access from the free, safe parking,... More

Excellent in every way, and convenient to Bahia Apartments. Try the base of the cliffs on both south and north. Massages on the beach, nice restaurants nearby.
