Very secluded , safe and beautiful sandy beach. Great for snorkeling and swim with the turtles. Saw also parents with very small kids. That means safe. Lounge chairs and chairs at a small fee available. For those from the hotel free. At the restaurant above the beach bay we order food, like delicious burgers, goat sandwich, fries, etc.we pick up and enjoy it on the beach. Restaurant has excellent menu and chef. Always interesting to see what the small fishingboats bring in and sell.

Very secluded, great for snorkeling, quite clean considering that it's a fishing beach. The beach itself doesn't have a restaurant, but there is one up the cliff with amazing views. The water is crystal clear and you don't need water shoes. It also has plenty of shade. The chairs for rent were a little bit expensive in my opinion, but if you are going to stay the whole day, it's worth to pay for one.

This beach is a long stretched in length with intriguing rocks walls on both sides, you could see all sorts of patterns in the rocks. The water quality is delicious, you won't leave it at a quick dip. The way this beach is, it has an intimacy that view beaches have, other beaches are broader. On the beach there is a very nice masseuse, she does a great job, highly recommended. Also there are murals on the community center that just make you instantly happy. There is a fun interactive wall where you can after a dip in the sea, pose on a painted surfboard with a huge wave on top of you. If you have Instagram you can hashtag Lagunwave. Good vibes, Playa Lagun!

A nice beach indeed but quite narrow and thus rapidly overcrowded. The water is not as clear as at other places of Curacao. And due to the fact that it it very narrow you don´t have the feeling of freedom, wide views etc.
There are much better beaches on Curacao!

Amazing snorkeling experience with turtles. We stayed in the Lagun Ocean Resort next to this beach and had an opportunity to swim and snorkel here daily. We would usually start our day by saying hello to turtles every morning before breakfast. They would never disappoint and we saw them every time when snorkeling here. What makes Curacao so special - the water always calm and warm. The beach is very small and narrow - but that is what makes it cozy and special. Visited in October 2018.

Really loved this beach. The snorkelling is really good and even at deep depths, the visibility is good. The coral is healthy and fish are abundant. The way the cliffs stand on both sides of the beach are really unique, providing a really cool swimming area I've never experienced. There is good shade on the beach and it isn't too crowded with people. Definitely worth the visit!

Snorklers seemed to like it here and there are two cafes/bars and a dive shop. Best bit for me was. waiting for the fishermen to come in around midday and buying a barracuda which they cleaned and gutted. About 10 US per kilo. Lots of tuna too.

This is a nice, local beach with calm water and absolutely amazing snorkeling. We had some of the best snorkels we've ever had at this beach. From eels to sea slugs, squids, and gorgeous corals, life was abundant along the cliffs. Be aware that the beach is popular for children's swim classes and you're likely to be interrupting a water aerobics class because this is very much not a tourist spot, but it was really nice.

Beautiful but we arrived around four a clock it was pretty quiet lonley. And no chair to rent so we must pack up better next time to stay longer at this beach. We saw a couples of locals there and they were very friendly

The beach is not much. It is a local beach, so a lot of waste and glass, so you can't lie down or relax for a day.
However, the bay is one of the best places in Curacao for snorkeling. Many different fish and also moray eels between the rocks.
