Great Snorkeling Beach

The beach is small but very nice. Some of the best snorkeling on Curacao that we found. Reefs are on both sides of the Lagoon.

Small beach, beach chairs for rent or pull up a towel for free. Free parking, facilities, and choice of two restaurants for snacks. Great snorkeling, calm seas. Spent a couple of great hours here! Watch for the chickens roaming the property.

Curacao is a beautiful Island in the Dutch Caribbean. It's next door to Venezuela and Aruba. Myself, my husband and a friend stayed there for about 5 days in January 2015. Curacao is only about 16 miles long by about 6 miles wide. I would suggest renting a car which is fairly cheap for the day (somewhere around $30-$40 a... More

We went on a windy week day and this beach was the perfect choice. Not over crowded, and great protection from the wind. The snorkeling was one of the best places we had on the island. We had a great lunch at the restaurant in the parking lot. The water is so blue and beautiful… It was like a postcard.... More

Buses run about every 2 hours from Otrobonda bus station (cost 220 florins) and take a little under an hour. Return buses arrive 1 hour after it leaves Otrobonda (I took the 4 PM). Tell bus driver where you want to get off. Beach is only a one block walk once you get off. Beach is nice with picnic tables,... More

Playa Lagun is free and parking nearby is free, but if you want to lounge in a beach chair, you'll need to rent it or bring your own. Shade is hard to find, but there are two cafes nearby that offer respite. The snorkeling is as good as other reviewers have described, but like other Curacao beaches, the passage from... More

This was one of our two favorite beaches to play in the water. It is tricky getting into the water with all the coral-gets in your flippers! It's fun to watch the fishermen come in around noon and sell fish right off their boats to visitors. There is also a very good restaurant by Lagun with a rooster that steals... More

Fabulous snorkelling, good coffee up the stairs above the beach, fresh caught tuna brought in by the fishermen every day around noon. Very nice atmosphere. Cliffs either side of the cove which means it's protected even when windy so no big waves. Easy entry on the right side. Snorkel right out along the right side - wonderful. Also good dive... More
