Take the car and drive up (about 50 minutes from Willemstad) and plan to arrive betwee 3 - 4 pm. You will see fisherman feeding turtles or just throwing their fish waste in the water and there, turtles of all sizes congregate. You will see...More

If you go here you are one of the lucky ones to spot turtles on a close range, and you can swim pretty close to the fantastic creatures. Unfortunately (as usual) this place is out of control, and Curacao government should do something ASAP to...More

This is one of the many beaches we visited and we actually snorkeled and scuba dived on this beach. When you snorkel, you can see the turtles which was pretty cool. The beach is also nice to sun bathe and rental chairs and umbrellas are...More

If you want to see turtles this is the place to be. The fishermen throw some food and several turtles swim to the pier. I was there on a weekend day and it was quite busy, if you have your snorkel gear then you can...More

This review is going to be a bit different than the others that are on here. The reviews are 100% true, the turtles are plentiful in numbers and you can get extremely close to them. The problem I had comes from the fish guts and...More

This is the BEST place to swim with sea turtles! During our trip we swam with 1 or 2 at Klein Curacao. When we came here we were amazed! we counted at least 8. They swarmed us by the dock! The fisherman drop their scraps...More

I’ve never swam with any animal other than fish (obviously) so I was a little hesitant at first. I ultimately had an amazing time and I’m really happy I decided to get in with them during feeding time. The turtles do touch you at times...More

You come here for one reason and it is worth it…the sea turtles! It is not the nicest beach area as it has a rocky entry and is “commercial” (pier with boats moored on one side of the bay and swimming on the other) but...More

We rented a car and drove there . The beach is quite small and is easy to find . Get there around 10 am . Have a swim. As soon as you see fishermen boats coming in, be ready .. turtles come right after them for a feast 😊

They are there most of the day, but come and go. Watch out for fishermen who clean their fish just off the shore where they throw the unusable parts of the fish overboard; that's where the turtles love to get their flippers... More

I was here the same week as you/ I was so upset to see how many people were not only touching the turtles but pulling and pushing them while they were trying to eat and come up for air. I was so angry. I wish there was some signs put up for the ignorant tourists who don't understand how cruel this is. I love Curacao, especially this beach for amazing snorkeling. I felt sad also that it seems they are bringing in huge bus loads of tourists.Stirring up the water and molesting the turtles. The bus pulled in with loud music playing and unloaded people who it seems were intoxicated or well on their way. I was here a few years ago with my husband and it was quiet, calm, and clear gorgeous water. There were others visiting but not over run with tons of rowdy, rude, people. I hope it doesn't get ruined.
