Beach condition at sunscape


My husband and I are looking at sunscape suracao but am a bit worried about the beach conditions as much people have mention that you should bring water shoes. Are there any places that you could possibly walk right into the ocean with a sand bottom instead of the rocks? If so, where would these locations be in respect to building locations at sunscape. Last once passing the entrance of the beach is it all sand bottom.

You don't need water shoes to enter near the flamingo and pelican buildings. That is the only place I entered, so can't answer for any where else. I never really had a problem anywhere on the island - I was snorkeling, so water shoes would not work anyway. I carried my fins as I entered the water, got into about 3 feet deep and put them on. Yes, there is coral bits, but not unbearable IMO.

I agree with Dotneko, if you wander down to the Pelican and Flamingo end of the resort, you will never need water shoes.

Oh and my picture is of moi at the beach there !

You wont find the pure pearly beaches of some islands. Curacao is a great island to snorkel and dive at with plenty of coral and beautiful fish.

However, you don't need wade walkers to get into the water, there is plenty of sand.

When not snorkeling, we would walk out neck deep without worrying about rocks or coral.
