Great beach day. Chairs for rent, just go find ones and someone will be around eventually to collect money. Snorkeling was great. Food at restaurant was delicious.

The water is shallow for quite some distance, and this beach is tucked into a bay so the waters are quite calm (rare on this island!). A great place to snorkel, and there are quite a few varieties of fish swimming around the coral just a few feet under the water's surface!

A small piece of paradise. Although it has to be paid, it is quite cheap and offers a lot of facilities, as a parking lot, fresh water shower, restrooms, a restaurant and snack bar, chairs at the beach, a dive center and something more. I do recommend.

This is much higher quality than an ordinary beach bar. Some people actually go there for the food, rather than to swim. Although it is close to my house, I seldom go there except with a group, because the road to the Porto Mari Beach is horrible, one pothole after the other.

During our last vacation (3rd) at Curacao we made sure to visit Playa Porto Marie at least every 3 to 4 days. Making sure we arrived there before 9.30am guaranteed us sun beds at the sea shore. It is a very relaxed beach with beautiful fish to watch while snorkling and very nice servce to get for drinks and lunch.... More

This place was ok but nothing special. The beach is beautiful. It is a pay beach. We went on a holiday and it was packed. Still nice though. A ways out of town.

This is a fee beach with a nice restaurant and good facilities. If you go at the very end side, there is nit much people and it can actually feel more private. The entrance in the water is a bit rocky though. Snorkelling is nice around the man made corals.
