Our 2nd favorite site for shore diving Curacao (the first was Playa Kalki). Dive shop right on the beach where you can drive up to the hole in the fence at the dive shop and drop off your gear and park right close. Shop is run by the Marriott in Willemstedt and has a very nice staff. We rented our tanks there, cheaper again than Habitat, about $5.50 a tank. Beach charges $3 per chair, and there is a bar on the beach with good smoothies and food. French Fries were greasy though. Diving: Swam out to the drop-off, and headed 'right' at about 65 ft. Beautiful hard corals, small fish but plentiful. Watch out for current though. We had no current at first, but then noticed the soft corals swaying our direction and turned to find the current harder than we expected getting back to the beach entry area. Our son snorkeled there, too, and saw a stingray along the left shoreline. This beach is a beautiful place to spend the whole day. Uncrowded in early December and beautiful sand and the bluest water! We dove this site 2 days. A lady hit our rental car and ran off while we were out diving, and the dive shop personnel saw her and sent someone to her house to make her come back to fess up, which she did. She paid the damage directly to the rental car company. The dive shop has a very nice manager, and the shop has rinse tanks and tables you can use to suit up. And during surface intervals they let you put your gear in their storage room (an old railroad car).
