One of my family members had been years before. Apparently it's not much more Built up than in past but we were ok with it. Chairs. Bar. Not much else. Great snorkeling right off the beach on both directions. Also lovely local birds.

Playa Porto Marie is a 35 to 45 minute cab ride from the cruise ship port, but worth the time and money. The taxi cost quoted at the pier was $60 one way for two of us, but upon walking a bit thru the shop and hotel area we found the taxi stand and willing drivers for only $45 one... More

I went twice to this beach while on my vacation. Once on a weekend which was very packed and once on a weekday which was lightly filled which was perfect. The beach isn't too big but it's beautiful and the water is beautiful. The snorkeling was amazing. There were so many fish in the water that you can swim with... More

My wife and I visited 4 of the more notable beaches on the north half of the island and found Porto Mari to be the best. There really isn't much you can complain about here. The view is fantastic. The beach area is rather large so you don't feel too crowded. The water is perfect with decent snorkeling from shore.... More

Dad & I had 3 great dives at Port Mari (2 shore dives & 1 boat dive). I was able to take photos of turtle, eel, lion fish, an eagle ray, shrimp, parrot fish, angelfish, etc.

The best beach in Curacao. The fee of USD 7 they charge is fully worth it, you get a beach bed, wifi and parking, there is live music and it`s great and service is awesome. The terrace in the restaurant is great to see the sunset. The beach is beautiful! A must!

Beautiful beach with bar/restaurant. Food is nice but a bit to expensive. If you want to go for a dive you can visit the dive shop for gear or bring your own.
