Very little current, huge beautiful coral and lots of fish - in other words, a SCUBA diver’s dream! Pay the small (7$) facility fee to Go West Diving so you can use their peer and bathrooms/equipment room, etc. Much easier than shore entry. Short swim...More

The beach is a nice little stretch of white sand, clean and speckles. And not crowded. Small bar, not to get thirsty. And a very very beautiful underwater scenery. Totally different from the European Mediterranean sea. Lots of fish to be seen by snorkelling.

This beach was near the house we stayed. 5 minutes walk. Not to big, quiet, clean beach. Snorkling was nice to do there. Beautiful.

We parked in the small parking lot along the wall, walked down the steps, placed our gear on the sand and hopped in for a quick snorkel. It was a great little site to snorkel at. After about 45 min we got out and left...More

This was the best spot for snorkeling that I saw on Curacao. I had come here with the Scuba Lodge on their Westpoint trip, but you can also easily access this beach from the Kura Hulanda resort at Westpoint. The reefs were very close to...More

Playa Kalki is of course famous for diving, but the shore is a great spot for snorkeling as well. And the small restaurant under the palapa is nice for a drink and a snack. One remark: snacks and drinks are not cheap here.

Impressive snorkel really close to shore, would of loved to have more time to explore. Some of the most impressive corals I've ever seen. Definitely a great spot for Scuba diving.
