Beautifull beach, nice food, pretty good snorkling. Good beach beds. If you come before 10u00 you can choose one of the more private umbrella's at the end of the beach. Lizzards and birds complete the picture. The underwaterworld is pretty good compared to other beaches but it is no sea aquarium.

What's not to like? Lots of folks prefer Cas Abou beach but the reality is there are soooo many great beaches in the Banda Abou part of Curacao (why would you go anywhere else?) that it's toought to choose one that isn't 5-5 star. Great dive shop with a double reef out front. Crazy blue waters. Nice shade tents, lounge... More

Terrible for snorkeling. But like many of the coves on Curacao, it's beautiful. We enjoyed the restaurant, though: decent, relatively inexpensive food with a great view and a lot of visiting bananaquits and troupials.

Located on one of my favorite beaches on Curaçao. Stunning views and beach. Relaxed staff and complete menu for every budget. Food quality is perfect. Plan a day to go here to this must visit place.

I've been to this restaurant a couple times. Most of the time only had lunch. Lunch was nice though! Prices are reasonable, service was okay, sometimes had to wait long for the drinks, but most of the time was everything just 'reasonable'. Overal, not that special, but just ok. Do keep an eye open for the many wasps.. they where... More

We had a nice lunch with cold bears, tuna salad sandwich and a hamburger w fries and after went to the beach. The location is a popular place for divers and tourists. If you like crowds than you should go here. Food was less expensive than in most other locations.

My family and I have been on Curacao for 5 weeks now and have been to almost every beach a few times and porto mari is our favourite for sure. The sand is very nice and not as rocky as other beaches (knip). The snorkelling is the best on the island with a double reef system in place, and the... More

This beach is beautiful. It is rocky so you may want to wear water shoes. Bathrooms are very clean. Chairs are available as well as snorkel gear. Snorkeling was awesome here. Bar was a bit slow but drinks were good.
