The beach itself is very beautiful, but could be very crowed. It has a restaurant but can be difficult to get a seat in there, specially if there are groups of divers also looking for lunch. There are a few souvenir shops as well. You do not pay a entrance but for the chairs at the beach. It is large... More

The beach is nice but can get crowded on weekends/holidays. The restaurant and facilities are great, there is also a local dive shop at the beach and also a photographer/videographer if you like to be filmed while diving. The reef is super for snorkeling & diving for all skill levels , it's actually a double reef and therefore tons of... More

Playa Porto Marie is one of the best beaches that I have ever been to. Admission is $3 per person; renting beach chairs is, I believe, $3.50 per chair. The sand is white and has stones and coral pieces mixed in with it. The water is turquoise and very good for swimming and snorkeling. There is a bar/restaurant and there... More

Awesome beach. Went for lunch. Nice restaurant at the end of the beach. You can go strolling on the white sand alongside the huts and jump in the sea or both. Great day!

We enjoyed a day of snorkeling and sunbathing. There are plenty of Beach chairs that cost $3.50. Someone comes around and collects the money. There is also a $3.50 entrance fee for the beach as well. The lady collected the money at the same time for the chairs. They have a platform in the middle of the water, that my... More

It is the north western beach in Curacao with a perfect combination between amazing sea and good facilities...indeed there are a lot of umbrellas and some trees where you can find the shade during the hottest hours ...The sea is like all north western beaches in Curacao : amazing !

This beach is pretty popular but once you arrived you will know why. The restaurant had good food and drink and the beach is stunning. Underwater scuba diving is available here and despite being pretty busy with tourist traffic this diving was very nice as well. We spotted an octopus and my guide pointed out a rare seahorse. Pretty amazing... More

This is a wonderful beach with super services in central Curacao. The beach is nice and clean and well maintained. The restaurant had a great lunch. Bubba Shrimp. The dive shop was the most helpful and reasonably priced that we found. The staff was fun and interested in being helpful. The rental gear was in great condition and the prices... More
