The beach is nice with some facilities (dive school, restaurant, massage) but relatively crowded (at least the arrangement of the beds make look it like that) Good to have a swim, ok for snorkeling.

This was the beach we visited on a day stop on our cruise. We didn't book this excursion through the cruise, but got a van at the port. Idalene van Berkel was our van driver. Idalene is a wealth of information regarding her country. As there is no speed limit in Curacao, the cab ride is fast! Idalene speaks wonderful... More

This is a beautiful beach and really one of our favorites in our visit. We arrived right when the gates open so we were one of the first there before it got crazy crowded... We know there was an entrance fee of $3 per person, but (our fault) we didn't see the cost per chair rental as well. Since we... More

The beach is a beautiful white sand beach. Much of the water is shallow and has no current which seems perfect for young swimmers. This site was hit by a hurricane a decade or so ago and much of the reef has been destroyed. The reef is now a young reef in a state of renewal. Reef balls, hollow cement... More

Love Playa Porto Marie. Chairs are comfortable. The food is great at the snack shop. The snorkeling is great as well.

Great beach, beautiful water, good diving with a local dive shop onsite as well as a great restaurant and bar. All of the places we visited in Curacao, this was our favorite (and most of the locals we asked said the same thing). Highly recommended!

This beach is stunning. Like a page of a calendar stunning! THE best snorkeling we encountered in Curacao. It's facilities are well-maintained, chairs are comfortable, plenty of shade and did I mention the SNORKELING!!?? We saw lots of bright and beautiful fish and even a few moray eels! Bring water shoes to walk into the water especially if you're bringing... More

We have been there 3 times during our vacation and would come back again. They have a lovely beach and all amenities you desire for a day at the beach. The beach restaurant had really decent prices and food quality.

Beautiful beach, I can say probably the most breathtaking place I have ever been. Plenty of beach chairs and shade for everyone that wants it. Snorkeling is good and the water is calm. Drinks are good and reasonably priced. Clean bathrooms. Not much for kids to do. Is a bit rocky but managable without water shoes. Rented a car to... More
