The turtles come sometimes to get the fishing scraps, and the horse comes sometimes on Thursday night for a swim! The fish in the bay are wonderful if you are snorkeling or scuba diving. A great beach just to swim or just to relax also!

I went to playa lagun as part of a tour. the place is nice, small but enough for a nice sonorkelling time. Not much current and ideal for beginneers. No place for tanning tho. You have to pay for chairs but they give you 2 tickets for drinks. Bring shoes that you can take in the water as the beach... More

We saw lots of different fish and sea life out here. We went to the right of the beach following the cliff edge. Lots of sea grass and different corals not far from the cliff edge. The entrance from the beach is good, pretty sandy in most areas a few spots had some broken corals.

This is a public beach, what means there is no fee to come in. We stayed out there while having a drink on our way back from Kenepa to Willemstad. It was worth the stop out there. The topography and color of the water compose a unique, breath-taking, jaw-dropping scenario. Good local infrastructure, with restrooms and few places for food... More

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
