This is one of the bandabou beaches that is accessible from Sint Willibrordus. You can have a good lunch at this beach, there is a dive school where you can rent material, and very special: a double reef where most of the time stingrays can be seen. A welcome change. Often take 2 dives here with lunch in between.

We visited this beach on the last day of our trip, Nov 24th, 2016 and it was the 6th beach we visited. If you are looking for a large, clean beach with crystal blue water, sand and lounge chairs, you've found the place. There is also a lovely, inviting restaurant. The entry to the water is quite rocky, which you... More

Porto Marie was the first beach we visited on curacao and my personal favourite. It's a cozy, sheltered bay with good snorkelling and swimming, and good facilities including dive shop and reasonably priced bar/restaurant. It was also considerably quieter than other beaches we visited, and we got the impression that a lot of the clientele were local to curacao which... More

We didn't use the beach facilities, though the huts, sand, etc all looked very well maintained. We accessed the dive site at Porto Marie from a boat. Terrific dive site with lots of fish, healthy corals, etc. We saw a few snorkelers while we were there - not sure how much they could really see as the nicer parts of... More

Beautiful beach with clear turquoise water. Great place to spend a relaxing day. There is a cost of $3 each but it is kept so clean that I didn't mind paying the few dollars. We did not rent a chair as we wanted to snorkel most of the time. Great snorkeling spot as we saw lots of fish including some... More

Playa porto marie is a beautiful white sand beach, with crystal clear waters, flanked by smaller, explorable "caves". It is accessible, very easy to walk around and into the sea, and there are trees or beach-umbrellas offering protection from the sun all around the clock. It is popular with all ages and, depending on where you choose to sit, you... More

I'm from a place that all beaches are free of charge so paying for it was very weird - in fact the first time - but i got the point that someone is preserving the local ecosystem and for so is exploring exclusively the point. Worth the visit with you wish a calm sea, warn sea, shadow and beers. Rent... More

Great beach, but was very crowded on Sunday. However, the sunsets here are beautiful, but I preferred Cas Abao better

Had a fun afternoon at this beach. We grabbed Adirondack chairs under a palm tree by the restaurant/ bar for a nice amount of sun & shade. Saw quite a few fish just off the shore while snorkeling. There is a pier that goes out about 100 feet with a ladder for those who want to get into deeper water.... More
