Snorkeling

Stopped here for a quick snorkel. Most beautiful fish we have seen. Easy entry/exit. Safe. Small beach. Nice calm water inside a cove.

Beach shoes or flippers for foot protection are recommended here as this is a coral, rather than a sand beach. It's a lovely area with a bit of shade and some good snorkelling. Quite busy, and a nice cheap and cheerful burger bar place just outside the beach proper. Free parking and free beach, though I don't remember seeing toilets.... More

This is a neat little cove. There were roosters on the beach and little boats. We did go to the restaurant on the cliff. It was a nice place to sit and have a drink, although the food wasn't that good. Snorkeling here was really neat here.

Great snorkeling and diving. Plenty to see and do. The beach is not very large but it is nice. The swimming area is protected and very nice. If you dive it's a bit of a swim but worth it.

At first impression the Beach seemed a bit messy, tyres on the beach-front and a shabby diving-shack. But when We looked closer the tyres were for the small fishing-boats that returned in the early afternoon with the days catch. The snorkeling on each side of the lagoon was great, Lots of different fish and corals - as always on curacao,... More

We visited Playa Lagun to do some snorkeling while touring Curacao. It offers a small white sand beach with nice snorkeling on both sides, which are rocky walls of the cove. There was a nice variety of fish and coral and it's possible to swim the entire circumference without much difficulty. This was a great stop. We were told that... More

Our driver brought us in here to take a look at the view. You really need to climb up to the restaurant on the top and get a view from there. It is really one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen.

We were told by a couple locals to explore Playa Lagun if great snorkelling was what we were interested in. The snorkelling was lovely around the edges of the lagoon amongst the rocks and the water was very clean and clear. The day we went there were 3 topless sunbathing women there (I'm not sure how common that is) but... More
