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.

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
A little on the busier side although we did go on a Sunday... we were able to snorkel and see some cool fish and turtles! They come pretty close to you (people on the pier feed them to come close!) It is more on the...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
Worth a drive if you have a car- excellent snorkeling, swimming, scuba, and more. Sailboats, seadoo / seabob rentals. Easy walk out beach. Parking is limited but park downhill in the shade, better to get in and out, anyways - short walk. There is a...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
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 and jaws on! So head for those little boats; last time I was surrounded by 9 hungry turtles. Some of the parts are to big for them to handle and when I tore up the pieces, the turtles ate from my hands.

Haunama Bay on Oahu makes you take a 15 minute class before going in the water. i think if they made a program in Curacao where you need to learn reef and wildlife etiquette before being able to go in the water with a bracelet or something it will curb this behavior. I hated to be "that guy" to have to sternly explain the harm they could be doing but I felt it necessary.
