Best Beaches in Curacao
1. Blue Bay Beach
One of the most beloved beaches near the capital of Willemstad, Blue Bay occupies a tiny curve of sand backed by the Blue Bay Golf Club, just outside of the town of Sint Michiel.
So why do so many people make a point to visit such a small beach? Credit goes to the beach's sheltered cove, perfect for snorkelers and swimmers who want to experience the water without choppy waves and murky waters.A Snorkeler's Heaven
Indeed, Blue Bay Beach's best feature might be what lies beneath the surface. Upon entering the water you'll start to see the coral that makes the beach famous; wade out even further to see the ocean floor dominated by colorful reefs brimming with tropical fish.Tips
You'll have to pay an $8 fee to enter the beach, and loungers and umbrellas come at an additional cost.
Protect yourself from sharp coral with water shoes, and be sure to pack sunscreen — a thicket of palms is the only place for a bit of shade.
Azzuro, Blue Bay Beach Bar and Sunset Bar and Grill are your choices for dining near the beachfront. Make the drive to Willemstad for a wider range of options, including Vita Vegetarian Cuisine, a popular option for plant-based fare.
