With more than 35 named beaches, Curaçao offers a cornucopia of choices for sun, sand, and surf. Some are intimate pocket beaches in finger coves surrounded by massive cliffs, while others are expansive stretches of sand secluded by nature or bustling with activities. You can swim, snorkel and dive, plunge off sea cliffs, build sand castles, and enjoy a fresh-catch lunch or romantic sunset dinner.
Some beaches charge admission, sometimes including a beach chair. And even though it is not common, nor acceptable practice at all beaches, you may see European visitors sunbathing topless. Please note that this is not permitted by law, but is tolerated at a few of the beaches.
