Curacao's Great Beaches
Curaçao's beaches are every sun seeker's dream
Curaçao has some thirty public and private beaches, ranging from intimate rocky coves to long strands
bustling with activity. Almost all of the swimming beaches are scattered along the sheltered southwestern
coast, where the waters are generally calm and crystal clear. The northern coast, with its powerful surf and strong undertow, is not suitable for swimming. Topless bathing is officially prohibited on all public beaches and some private ones, although tacitly accepted in some places.
Playa 'PortoMari' is the place to be for All nature lovers.This long, enchanting stretch of sparkling white sand, with 'kid-friendly' waves is also a paradise for swimmers, snorkelers (equipment is available) and divers. The clear and quiet water of this natural beach has a unique 'double coral reef', that allows you to explore one reef, swim over it and soon encounter another, which makes it a fascinating dive site. The Seru Mateo, a hill near the beach, has an adventurous nature trail to the top, about 60 meters, with magnificent panoramas.
The beach is open every day from 9.30 AM till 6.30 PM and the fun beachside bar and restaurant offers you a variety of delicious food.
