“Horrible snorkeling and even worse service at the restaurant.”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

The beach was overcrowded with not enough umbrellas. Most people are left to the back of the beach with some shade trees but infested with ants. The service at the café is deplorable. Will not return.

“We saw no fish!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Don't understand what the hype is over this beach. It's so crowded you can hardly walk anywhere....and this was September. Wonder haw much more crowded it can be during winter months! We snorkeled the entire beach twice and saw very little. I don't understand the "reef balls"...apparently neither do the fish!! The restaurant was okay...not one of the best beach bars we visited.

“Interesting beach”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We go to Porto Marie every summer when we are in Curacao. It is a very interesting place to snorkel because reef balls have been placed to attract fish. There is a nice beach restaurant on the premises, you can rent loungers and umbrellas, and there is an outdoor shower. The beach is flat and level...a very safe place for children and families. Farther out the reef drops off and you can SCUBA. However, don't go there if topless female sunbathers would offend you. There aren't many, but some girls are topless.
