It was a bit of a drive via taxi with higher fares but completely worth it to be off the tourist trap and cruise ship scene. Word of advice- ask your taxi driver to pick you back up because there weren't many available for the return trip! Bring your branch shoes as there is a lot of coral!

We go to the beach to snorkel, and this was one of the best in Curacao that we saw. It was not the best of mornings, as it rained off and on, but we were there early and enjoyed the snorkeling.

Playa Porto Marie is one of the many nice beaches and worthwhile a visit during your stay on the island. You need to go early to secure a nice spot for the day...

Nice beach - $3USD entry and $3USD for chair, the beach was clean and very very nice. Lovely bar - had a nice lunch (cheeseburgers in paradise) The staff were attentive and service was very good. Would definitely recommend this area to spend the day. Restrooms were nearby and clean.

Great place to go and have a quiet relaxing time. Tiki bar has great food and drinks. It is a private beach so you have to pay to be there plus beach chairs if you want one but fee is minimal for the ambiance you get.

Its quite a hike to get to this private beach however its worth it if you like a wide open beach with chairs and facilities. Snorkeling was ok.

Hired a taxi to take us to the beach. Adult daughter wanted to snorkel. Paid about $100. round trip for 3 adults. Beach is about 30 minutes from the dock. Beach fees were reasonable: $20.00 US got us admission to the beach, 3 lounge chairs, and a large umbrella. Best snorkeling was to the left of the small pier. Daughter... More

The beach was very beautiful and had some great scenery. There was plenty of fish swimming we could see even from the walk out dock. But it was definitely packed the day we went.
