This was a cool place. Like the last reviewer, I really liked it because it was out of the way, and it was like having our own private beach. Take the time to go there, and take a couple of tanks in case you want to stay the afternoon. Take lots of water, and anything else you may need. I just love Curacao.

This site is off the beaten path, but easily accessed with any vehicle. Not much in the way of parking, but I only saw one other group of divers during the three dives I did here. This is the only beach on Curacao I came across that had black (dark) colored sand. It didn't affect the visibility though... it just wasn't as "bright" of a dive as others I'd experienced in Curacao. It is a bit of a kick out to the reef. However, just before you get to the reef there is a small wreck sitting on the sandy bottom at about 20-25 feet. Not a lot happening around the wreck, but interesting none the less. The coral formations here are very nice and there are lots of sponges. I did see a turtle and several morays. A very nice dive site with a nice little beach to kick back and soak up some rays.
