Great beach and perfect place to snorkel,especially if you are a beginner. The bar had good food and drinks available which made us stay even longer than first planning;friendly staff too.

We rented a car and spent the whole day at Playa Porto Marie. Most of us spent day lounging on the beach, and one in our group went diving. He said it was a good place to dive and was able to rent a tank (had all the other gear) from the Dive Shop on site for about 9 US... More

We spent the whole day at this beach with our children. There was plenty for us to explore on land and in the ocean. This beach is one of the most beautiful, serene places.

Although it was challenging to use the maps available to find the beach (Drive thru Willibordus follow signs near the church) , once there we were not disappointed.There is a small charge per person to use the beach. The dive shop has air tanks and a great set up for taking off/on equipment as well as rinse tanks and a... More

We loved this beach! It's big with a lot of great snorkeling and crystal clear turquoise and deep blue waters. We went July 4th week and only about 30% of the lounge chairs were occupied, making it a wonderful, relaxing experience. We had lunch at the bar/restaurant, which was good for bar/beach food. You won't be disappointed with your decision... More

Porto Marie is a great beach with easy access, double reef for divers, good snorkeling and a very nicely kept beach. Plenty of umbrellas and lounge chairs for a reasonable price. Good food and drink at their restaurant make this an easy beach to enjoy.

On a day excursion from our hotel, we decided to drive to Westpunt. Looking at the tourist map and maps on line, I thought we would be driving right along the coast with a scenic drive of the ocean and coastline. Not so much! The main road is a few miles inland and therefore you don't see any ocean views... More

We loved the staff here, and the terrace bar area was a great place to enjoy a drink. The beach is quiet and small, with many chaise lounges available. As with most beaches in curaçao, i wore my water shoes as there are quite a few rocks.

Love this beach. If you go early you can get a parasol far from the entrance which is more quiet. Food is average but good enough for a good lunch. Snorkeling is nice here, diving is ok, it's a pity the reef is a bit damaged after a diving school started here. It's a far drive from town but worth... More

We rented a car and drive from Willmstedt about 45 minute drive. It was an adventure drive there for sure down some well used roads. We stopped in the Marshy area to look at the flamingos next to Williwood. Then drove on in and parked in a dirt parking lot. They have snorkel and scuba rentals as well as a... More
