We spent a few weeks in this area. If we did it again, we would shorten our time there and visit other places. Lagun is very nice and the water was wonderful. It is not a large beach. Really need water shoes. Snorkeling was not the greatest and I was expecting better but we had a nice time. Not too... More

This was our second trip to Curacao, our first was last November. We returned to Playa Lagun for a visit as it's one of our favourite lunch spots (the place across the street) and good for snorkeling. This time however, there was a woman offering massages, so I treated myself. My husband and I regularly visit our RMT at home... More

We love the variety of the Curacao coves and beaches, both for diving (my son and I) and for sunning (my wife). The Lagun beach is great for all the above reasons, with one added kicker: hike up some steep stairs, and you can sit in a little restaurant overlooking the whole little scene. What a great day, go there... More

This was our 4th time staying at Playa Lagun (ocean resorts). This year we stay d at what we believe is the best house in the entire area. The corner house on the cliff. Incredible views of both the ocean and the Lagun. It has it own private entrance to the ocean, which makes it so worth staying there. The... More

This was our third visit/vacation in Playa Lagun. This year we stayed at what we believe to be the best property in all of Curacao: the house on the corner of the Lagun and the ocean. The house itself is very nice. It has brand new owners, so I will cut them a break on some of the changes that... More

We caught a bus from Oranjestad which took us on a picturesque tour of the island en route to this lovely beach. Four stars because when we visited it seemed there had been storms so the beach was covered in coral and stones with steeply shelving shoreline. This meant a challenge getting in and out of the water. Once in,... More

Went here as the last stop on our beach tour day of driving around the island. Definitely a nice beach and the rock on either side was interesting. Snorkeling was good at this beach.

Locals encouraged my wife and me to visit Playa Lagun for its snorkeling and for the possibility of seeing sea turtles. We didn't see the turtles, but the snorkeling was indeed exceptional. The beach is not terribly crowded, and there was a nice offering of food options within walking distance. The beach is free to visit so long as you... More

We came to this beach around 3.30pm due to our villa information saying it is the best place to see Turtles between 4-6pm. It was busy and not very big so looks a bit cramped. We found a bit of shade for our 5 month grandson and took turns to snorkel. On both sides there are rock coves with plenty... More
