Known as Playa Piscado (Piskado) and Playa Grandi.
This small fisherman's beach in Westpunt is great for a quick stop to see the giant sea turtles and to do a bit of snorkeling. Of the many places to spot sea turtles this is probably the...More
As its name indicates, Playa Piscado is where fisherman come to clean their catch. The beach itself is not spectacular-mostly pebbles-but what you come here for is offshore. An easy entry into the water with snorkeling gear and you are surrounded by sea turtles. These...More
My husband loves sea turtles, so this was a must for us. We got there early, so no fishermen throwing out chum for the turtles. But there were still 8 or 10, mostly on the right side of the dock. The beach is small, the...More
Great place to shore dive, easy entrance from beach. Get there early (before 10am) - less crowds, closer parking. Early in the morning the turtles are out on the reef, which is a wonderful way to experience them. Once at the reef (short swim from...More
This is an awesome thing to do in curacao!
You don’t have to stay here all day it’s mostly around 10:30-12 that they feed the turtles and they nonchalantly swim around you.
The beach is nothing spectacular you are just here to swim with turtles...More
This is a fabulous place to dive on the island. Go West is one of the local dive operators. You can see the turtles, which come at the end of the day to enjoy whatever fishermen throw over their boats. Divers and snorkelers are not...More
This beach isn't the prettiest on Curacao. Not even close. The beach is rocky. There are fisherman working by the shore and chopping fish on the beach. Overall the area is a bit rough, BUT none of that matters because you are here for the...More

We rented a car and drove there . The beach is quite small and is easy to find . Get there around 10 am . Have a swim. As soon as you see fishermen boats coming in, be ready .. turtles come right after them for a feast 😊

They are there most of the day, but come and go. Watch out for fishermen who clean their fish just off the shore where they throw the unusable parts of the fish overboard; that's where the turtles love to get their flippers... More
They are there most of the day, but come and go. Watch out for fishermen who clean their fish just off the shore where they throw the unusable parts of the fish overboard; that's where the turtles love to get their flippers and jaws on! So head for those little boats; last time I was surrounded by 9 hungry turtles. Some of the parts are to big for them to handle and when I tore up the pieces, the turtles ate from my hands.

Haunama Bay on Oahu makes you take a 15 minute class before going in the water. i think if they made a program in Curacao where you need to learn reef and wildlife etiquette before being able to go in the water with a bracelet or something it will curb this behavior. I hated to be "that guy" to have to sternly explain the harm they could be doing but I felt it necessary.
