Playa Lagoun is a great little beach between two cliffs in the Westpunt area of Curacao. There is a smoothie truck near the parking lot, and Restaurant Playa is near the entrance to the beach. I got a couple of diet cokes there, and they have a good menu, good staff and diet coke! We arrived about 12:45 PM on... More

Been here 4 years straight & we love this spot. Quaint beach with excellent snorkeling! Locals hanging out filleting & selling their catch of the day. There's a bar at the top of the cliff that also serves food. Views are awesome!

Came to come cool off after visiting Shete Boka national park. The water is beautiful and full of fish. Make sure to bring your snorkeling mask so you can see all the life under water.

This is a beautiful bay, almost fully enclosed by steep rocks. There is a small beach, with a very affordable beach bed rental service. Snorkling is wonderful: 1000s of tropical, colourful fish, large crabs, snakes and herons all make for a very enjoyable visit. Have dinner at Discover Diving across the car park, or drinks on the terrace of the... More

One of the many beautiful beaches on Curacao. Drinks and foods are good. Very good beach for snorkling, diving and enjoying the beach life.

The beach was dirty as hell. The sand was rocky and shells everywhere. Its a public beach open to the public and locals. The food was old and nasty. We got served old brown lettuce with shrimps for a salad.

Spent the day at Playa Lagun relaxing. Got there early in the day to grab a shady spot. Small beach but not too crowded during the week. Watched a couple of boats come in with the day's catch. Lounge chair rental comes with a free apple or orange juice, but you have to climb some stairs to claim your prize.... More

We had the best meals at the Bahia Beach bar in Playa Lagun. It is on the left called Bahia Apartments and Diving. The location is romantic on the water. The steak was excellent on the first day. We went back because it was soon good and the Tuna was just as excellent on the next day. If you have... More

Small beach, small parking lot, shade provided by some trees. Great for snorkeling, lots of fish along the sides of the lagoon. Later in the day three turtles came in and swam about. On the far side there is a wooden platform (above the water) from where you can jump in, you need to swim to it to get there.
