Best Beach EVER!!!!

If Playa Cas Abo was a 9, then Porto Mari was a 15! Once again,Poppy Hostel owner, Art Klep, suggested this beach and he was spot on. The beach was pristine except for the coral washed up. It has been pounded over the years that it is not rough-edged coral but some beach shoes would be a good idea... read more

This is a great beach and the cafe is a plus but we were disappointed in the food. Also a long wait as there were only two servers for a very busy lunchtime. However, the beer was cold and the view terrific. Get there early or late as it's very busy lunchtime.

Long, sandy beach. Very beautiful setting. Lounge chairs for rent. Can be crowded, but if you walk a bit, thins out a lot. Mostly Dutch and German tourists, with some US and Latin Americans.

If Porto Mari beach is beautiful though often packed, we weren't impressed by the restaurant offering basic but decent food.Friendly staff.

This beach is amazing from the minute you step on the beach. The facilities, the restaurant, the amazingly clear water. A bit rocky but totally manageable to get in and out. Don't forget your snorkeling gear because the fish in this water are amazingly beautiful and easy to view right from the shore!

A perfect beach to snorkel for the first time. There was a small fee to get in but it's worth it. We stayed for lunch and the food was great. The smoothies they make there are delicious.

I went to Porto Mari with a friend of my on a sunday afternoon. We sat down to eat something before we went swimming and to our surprise there was live music. The food was nice. I would not only go to Porto Mari for the food. But if I do go there I would eat at the restaurant. We... More

My breath was completely taken away by this place. Found it randomly on a road trip of the island. Sipping cocktails on the beach. Snorkelling in the clearest of waters. Amazing. I miss this place so much. Ask for the "Swimming pool" cocktail. Yum!

Really pretty and nice beach. Recommend water shoes in curacao as the entry to many of the beaches are rocky. Restaurant was cute and casual. Little pricey for a beachside shack but view was great.
