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

Great snorkeling, free beach not cleaned - a raking one in a while would be helpful - but it is free. there are chairs to rent or lie on sand on towel. Just go out past the cove and you are in deep water - very clear - were told sometimes turtles come just outside - not the day we... More

This was one of my favorite beaches! The beach is very small but the view was breathtaking! We ate at the Bahia Restaurant and enjoyed some great cocktails and sandwiches. The snorkeling here was great!

We stopped by for a morning snorkel. Parking lot is a bit small, there is a guard. We asked someone to help unchain the loungers for us - there is a fee associated but I don't think anyone comes around to collect it until after 11am...we left by then. It's a small beach and not that relaxing for lounging as... More

What a great place to bring the family! The water is crystal clear and teeming with aquatic life. Colourful tropical fish of all sizes swimming just steps into the ocean.

We stopped here on the way back from another beach, very small and alot of boats on beach so very little room to sit. Restaurant looked cool.

Considered one of the better snorkel/walk-out SCUBA sites on Curaçao, with plenty of good viewing for less-experienced snorkelers. We have visited several years. This year there were dozens of cute reef squid (some on either side of the lagoon channel), along with easily a hundred fish species. The beach is notable for providing a good bit of natural shade (but... More

Beach here is protected and nice. Snorkeling is good on both sides of the bay. Have seen turtles here. There is a parking lot guard, a little restaurant, and a dive shop that's rents snorkel gear.

It is really too bad someone does not put a trash can on this beach. Pulling into the parking lot, you see trash bins overflowing. It was a Monday, so maybe all the trash was from the weekend, but it really is a shame. No bathrooms. The snorkeling was good and that is why I rated it 4. We arrived... More
