Terrific beach, Great bar and restaurant. People dive off the beach. Calm waters. You see a lot of eels, fishes while snorkelling. It is shallow waters and not crowded. Go during the weekdays

Diving centre for equipment, nice clean beach...bit rocky because of the coral. Nice location!! Food is good at the local restaurant and not too expensive.

One of our favorite places to snorkel in Curacao.
Clean restrooms, free showers, small fee for entrance and chairs.
Big servings at the restaurant with good food.

Porto Marie is a decent public beach with facilities (bathroom, shower, bar/food). But it is not that large. We went there specifically to go scuba diving out on the reef. The dive was nice and we saw some interesting coral and fish. The beach itself is a bit rocky and I was glad to have on scuba boots. Post dive it was nice to be able to rinse off in the showers and get a drink at the bar. Not sure if I would make an entire day out of this beach but was good for a few hours or so.

Once the place to be, now a little behind in maintanance (as is almost everything on this part of the island). Still a nice beach with enough space. The beach is full of dead coral, so shoes (especially for children) are no luxury. Snorkling is ok, but there are better places to do this. The 'restaurant' is open at random times and very limited, so bring your own!
