Beautiful beach with great amenities. You have to pay for access but it wasn't pricey. Hired snorkeling gear for $10USD. Had a delicious smoothie for $5USD. Crystal clear water and clean sand. Wasn't too crowded for a Sunday. Definitely worth the trip.

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

Private beach, you have to pay (not expensive) to go there and you have security, parking lot, chairs, white sand, exceptional snorkeling spot, dive center... it closes at 18:30, just in time to join the small crowd to watch an impressive sunset. Certainly if I go back to Curaçao, i´ll be back to this place

unfortunately you have to pay for the beach (and chairs are separate on top). you can find shady places and our kids loved the iguanas on the beach. Great reef for snorkeling; also for kids as water not very deep (for a couple meters at least). Lots of fish even in shallow water.

The place where we were staying offered vouchers for 4 persons to go to Porto Marie for free (entrance 5 guilders, 3 for a bed). If you don't want a bed, there is no room for you - the whole beach is covered with them - so you're forced to use them. The beach is clean and snorkeling is great,... More

Beautiful bay with turquoise sea and plenty of trees / shade around. The entrance to the water has a lot of coral so water shoes are very helpful but stunning marine life once in the sea. Gentle waves so suitable for a variety of swimming abilities with nice restaurant at one end.

Lovely water, snorkeling, easy access...my favorite of about eight beaches visited in Curacao. The two guys running the bar were so positive, upbeat and funny---made it a pleasure to hang out there for awhile. Try the banana soup if they have it!

Look for the lady in a hat to find you. For a small fee that you pay to her, you can visit this excellent Curaçao beach. It has one of the better facilities with dining and bar for Curaçao beaches and you are guaranteed to see awesome marine life while snorkeling.
