One great coral complex makes this worthwhile.

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... read more

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.

Spent the day there rented lounge chairs and claimed a palapa since we were there by 9:30. Good parking lot and a small snack bar with a friendly lady. You rent the chair for 10 NAF and get 5 back when you return it. Yes, you pick it up and place it on the stack. No problem. Beer and limited... More

Our idea was to have some breakfast, do some snorkeling and then go to another snorkeling site. Well the plans changed. When we arrived there was hardly anybody on the beach except 30 teenage children who left within the hour. We rented chairs, sat under a palapa (chickee hut,) befriended the guy who runs the snack bar who brought us... More

One of the nicest beaches we found on the island. Beach-chairs can be rented at the kiosk (10 NAF, 5 NAF will be returned if the chair is being returned) and there was no fee for car parking. Small fees for shower and toilet. A lot of trees for those looking for shadow, snorkeling was nice but nothing breathtaking. Mostly... More
