Cas Abao Beach in Curaçao One of the 21 Best Beaches in the World


National Geographic's Kimberley Lovato researched the world's beaches and included the 21 best of them in a comprehensive list. Her picks include beaches in North- and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia as well as the Caribbean and, of course, Curaçao.

Curaçao's Cas Abao Beach earned a solid position in Kimberley's list as one of the world's best beaches for snorkeling. She writes:

"Cas Abao Beach, Curaçao: Ringed by reefs, Curaçao hides a Caribbean underwater wonderland, and this beach is one of the few sandy ones on the arid island, with a bar and a shop to rent snorkel gear. Slip straight into the shallow crystalline bay alive with sea fans and coral, tropical fish, sponges, sea turtles, and more."
