Curaçao Sights

Playa PortoMari

Fodor's Review

Set beneath an historic plantation site, you'll find calm, clear water and a long stretch of white sand and full facilities on this beach. A decent bar and restaurant, well-kept showers, changing facilities, and restrooms are all on-site; a nature trail is nearby. The double coral reef—explore one, swim past it, explore another—is a special feature that makes this spot popular with snorkelers and divers. The entrance fee is $3, children under 12 free. From Willemstad, drive west on Westpunt Highway for 4 miles (7 km); turn left onto Willibrordus Road at the PortoMari billboard, and then drive 3 miles (5 km) until you see a large church; follow signs on the winding dirt road to the beach. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets. Best for: partiers; snorkeling; swimming; walking.
