Good snorkel w/ squid, nice restaurant

The beach is very picturesque and the sand is cleaner here than at Daaibooi and the snorkeling is just as good - plus here there are schools of squid! You can rent lounge chairs... read more

The beach is very picturesque and the sand is cleaner here than at Daaibooi and the snorkeling is just as good - plus here there are schools of squid! You can rent lounge chairs here (but there was no partial refund for returning them). The beach is quite small and there aren't many places for shade, so I recommend coming... More

We went there to snorkel and it was amazing. The beach is OK, but the water is perfect and the panorama is gorgeous! We loved it!!

We headed to Playa Lagun for some snorkeling mid-afternoon on a Sunday. The parking lot is a bit small, and was full, but we found space on the side of the road near the lot. This is not a large beach and there were a fair number of folks, but we planned to spend all our time in the water... More

Wonderful snorkeling, nice little gem of a beach tucked up on the northwest part of the island. Nice departure from the resort for a day.

The beach is at a nice bay, with very calm water. Good for snorkling and swimming. We saw people scuba diving but we ourselves didn't try this at this beach. It's not to big, not very crowded the two times we were there. Beach chairs are available and there are two restaurants close by. We only tried one, located high... More

We were brought to this beach by our tour guide, as it was his recommendation for snorkeling. The beach is not that big, but nice enough that it wasn't too crowded. You can rent chairs for $2 American. There are bathrooms, changing rooms, and a place for snacks and drinks. PS - If this review was helpful, please click the... More

You definitely want to tour Curacao beaches when you're there. They're all very busy during week-ends but if you manage to go during the week, it's heaven on earth :))

Though it is a bit of a drive to get here, it's a very nice quiet beach. It's protected by cliff's on either side so it makes for a good place for snorkeling. Beach chair rental is $5.00 and they give you tickets to get free apple or orange juice from the restaurant up top.

Great beach for snorkeling! Beach is rocky, not ideal if you want to just lounge in water. However, snorkeling is fabulous! There is an entire school of squid that reside there. We also saw French Angels, schools of Atlantic tangs, box fish, tile fish and more. Stay to the left for the best snorkeling. Chair rental is a few bucks.... More

This is a very pretty beach on the southwest side of the island (like most of the beaches in Curacao). It is free to use the beach; however, you must pay to use a beach chair. The purchase of a beach chair comes with a free glass of juice (orange or apple) from the juice bar at the top of... More
