Personally, I would have loved more time here! The beach is small, but very clean. The kids had a great time building sand castles and playing in the sandy shallows. The best snorkeling we found was along the left hand cliff bank. The coral colors were absolutely gorgeous. We saw lots of different fish and an octopus!

We came at the recommendation of a dive instructor and had some of the best snorkeling during our week on Curacao.

The beach is really small. There are chickens, lizards, fisherboats and cars everywhere. I dont want to emagine how crowded this place gets in high season. However when you want to snorkel its kind of nice. Choose the right side of the cliff, there are some nice corals and some fish.

Beautiful cove beach with restaurant overlooking the whole scene. Best part was having lunch with six iguanas. They are appropriately skittish, but frolic on the stone ledge arms length away while you sip on a fruit smoothie. The chickens on the beach aren't quite so charming, so keep your food in a cooler!

Transparent green water beach. The beach is small, looks like a lake, and it is perfect for snorkeling. I had a very good time there. If you go upstairs on the rock, you will find this restaurant with very good fish (you can also rent snorkels there). The view is amazing! Some lizards may come around, which may be a... More

We were here in the rainy season and saw maybe 20 minutes of rain in the entire week. We'll be going back one day.

This is one of my favorite beaches on Curacao. It's small, with some palapas and a number of beach chairs. They cost around $5 a day to rent. The swimming and snorkeling are excellent. There are lots of brilliantly colored fish around the rock formations in the lagoon. You don't have to swim far at all to see the fish.... More

Play Lagun is easier beach for snorkling. Because, there is not much waves. Also, it is hot place surrounded by rocks. Iguana's you can find easily top of the hill. There is also couple of the restaurants. Also, when you drive there you can see nice part of the Curacao.

This is a beautiful little protected cove and beach area. Rent your lounge chair from the attendant and pick up your snorkel gear from the dive shop up the steep cliff steps. Some shaded areas are available on the beach if you arrive early. There is some live coral here and colorful fishes. The water gets quite deep, which I... More
