The top 10 beaches of Curacao

Curacao has more than 30 beaches and beautiful bays where you can relax. The temperature of the water is always nice and Curacao has few cloudy, let alone rainy days. That is why Curacao is the number 1 for a wonderful holiday in the sun. Especially towards Westpunt you will find many natural bays. For some beaches you don’t have to pay an entrance fee, you only pay for a sun bed/umbrella. The more touristy beaches do require an entrance fee. Here you will often find more facilities such as shops, diving schools, restaurants and, for example, spa treatments. In addition, you also have bays where you will not find any facilities at all, but you can take all your stuff with you. You might even have the beach all to yourself 🙂
