Great small beach, great ocean!

Excellent (free) beach. Quiet, less tourists. Just a perfect spot for relaxing, bbq and swimming. Small catering, rentals of beds and some palapa's for some shade!

Small, preserved and primitive - a few hens and roasters share the area with visitors - this beach is a great place. Calm and crystal-clear waters, ideal for snorkeling.

This beach is a very nice and relaxed beach. You can get different types of food and drinks for a better price than the more rich and tourists beaches around Curacao. Snorkeling is also an option but you have to swim to the more deeper water. For me this is one of the nicest relaxing beaches of Curacao.

Of the three snorkeling sites we visited on Curacao (this one, Porto Mari, Lagun and Groote Knip), this ranked third. But if you follow the right wall out toward the point, there's an outcrop of hard and soft coral that's very impressive. In addition to the usual staghorn and brain coral, there are soft corals, large urchins, multicolored fans and... More

I spent so much time here snorkeling. the fish and coral reef were so amazing and beautiful. Most of the time when I go snorkeling I'm disappointed by the wildlife. Not so at this beach.

3 thugs at the beach that pretended to be fixing a tire broke into our vehicle and stole 2 Go Pro cameras, prescription sunglasses, and other miscellaneous items that were in a bright green Eddie Bauer back pack. Community area is called St Willibrordus. We found the car the 3 thugs were driving and the 2 older men said they... More

The entrance is for free, chairs cost 5NAF. The bar was quite cheap. We were there at 10 o'clock and there were few people there. However when we left at 1-2 o'clock it was getting more crowded..

The shelters were nice and large but bathrooms in poor condition. They do have a free shower. The day we were there the water was not clear for snorkeling.

Loved Daaibooi Beach! The water was crystal clear, and there were less tourists there (even on a Saturday) since most go to the neighboring Porto Marie Beach. Snorkeling was excellent! Got to see many Sea Creatures in the coral reef (from Blue Tang, to Sea Urchins, to Eels!)

This beach would be a lot better if there wasn't so much litter everywhere which is truly a shame. The snorkeling is not that great as there is no coral so between the litter and the mediocre snorkeling I wouldn't return here with so many other great spots to choose from.
