Porto Mari has one of the nicest beaches with a great bar and restaurant. Enjoy the sunset while having a drink and a bite. The floating raft is great to play with and the snorkelling is awesome.

This beach is just amazing. The water was so clear. Enough lounge chairs and not a crowded beach. The bar there offers great food and drinks of course. If going to the island this beach is a must!

This is the best beach to go to for Curaçao. The water is great, perfect for snorkeling and some swimming. Some rocks at the beginning but once in its great. The platform out is helpful and nice. The view to the beach is priceless. Enough shade and beds, even on a Sunday. The bar and restaurant is nice and exactly... More

This was a shallow good snorkel beach. Lots of small fish but a great variety. We saw fish from the moment we stepped into the water. My son enjoyed the floating platform..jumping into the water. Would have liked to spend more time at beach.

I'm not even sure where to begin describing Porto Mari. The views are truly stunning. The beach is so picturesque, the snorkeling is phenomenal, I really can't say enough about the beauty and grander. This was a cruise excursion that we booked and it ranks as one of our favorites. They have a great restaurant and bar right on the... More

Nice beach to visit for those looking for a place with beach "services" like chairs, umbrellas and restaurant/bath rooms. Snorkeling was good, with typical reef fish. No admission to get in but prices for family of 5 was around $30.00 for five chairs and umbrella. You are close here, so find a place towards one of the ends, as it... More

We stopped in Curacao on a cruise. A large group of us (16 people) hired two taxi's. We paid $25US per person for a round trip ride from the port to the beach. We set a time and they came back and picked us up. (We paid when they returned). It is probably about at 25-30 minute drive and sometimes... More

This beach is one of the more developed beaches and a bit larger than a couple other beaches we visited. The entrance fee was collected when we paid for the chairs; it came out to $26 for four chairs and the fee. I felt that it was appropriate considering there are clean bathrooms, a dive shop, a restaurant and plenty... More

The beach was lovely overall, but it was difficult to sit at the waters' edge, or walk in the ocean because the rocks were so jagged.
