Where by is Curaçao, and What are the ABC Islands?
Curaçao is a petite island in the “ABC Islands” of the Caribbean (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao) that vacationers are just starting off to discover, and it features some of the most wonderful beaches I have found in my daily life.
Let’s tour three of the very best Curaçao seashores, and you decide which you’d most take pleasure in! I have put them in reverse get of my own favorites…
#3 of Curacao Beaches: Playa Porto Mari
Playa Porto Mari was the to start with of Seven beach locations I toured on my second day in Curaçao.
Sure, Curaçao is only 171 sq. miles, that means you can generate all over the total island, stopping to swim at fifty percent a dozen shore places, in just 50 % a working day. (For this rationale, leasing a automobile is a good strategy for a Curaçao getaway.)
Porto Mari is about 45 minutes north of Willemstad (residence to the properties that look like cakes), on the west side of the island.
My favored aspect of this beach front have been the sweet-coloured seaside chairs, sprawled like a rainbow street in between the turquoise sea and emerald hills.
Snorkeling and Diving in Curacao Beach locations
Like lots of of Curaçao’s beaches, snorkeling and diving are a get at Playa Porti Mari, but you can also just stroll out on to the pier and stare, agape, at the shimmering aqua expanse, ringed in sapphire at the horizon, previous the reefs. Doesn’t that person on the raft, down below, search like he’s on a magic carpet, soaring through the sky?
Getting a Bostonian who enjoys trees, but almost never sees individuals of the palm range, I turned entranced in Curaçao by the shadows of palm trees. There is some thing regal about them, as even though angels are fanning you with large feathers! Gaze down below, and think about the warmth of reclining on that very hot pink beach chaise…
Oh sorry — I just dozed off into a sweet reverie of wave sounds and swishing palms! Ahem. Onward with our tour.
The up coming beach front is in numerous ways my personal beloved, mainly because it felt so concealed, personal, and compared with any seaside I’ve viewed prior to, or imagined. (Cacti?!) The title of this position is…
#2 of Curacao Shorelines: Playa Jeremi
Playa Jeremi! Even the title is sweet, ideal? “Hi, my title is Jeremi the Seaside, and I have spiky cactus hair!”
I especially appreciate that scarlet purple trash can perched on the cliff over the beach front. Praise to the human being who appropriately concluded that the color is just the lipstick kiss that Jeremi desired on his rocky cheek!
Playa Jeremi personifies the spirit of Dushi: the official catch-stage of Curaçao.
Dushi indicates “sweet” in the feeling of lovely, delightful, charming… the greatest section of humanity. There is some thing about the scraggly sharpness of the cacti paired with the otherworldly-perfect blue of the ocean at Jeremi that is Dushi, incarnate.
When I frequented, mid-day, the seashore was just about empty. Gazing down the cliff, nonetheless, I noticed two shining figures flitting all around the waves. It was a father instructing his youthful daughter to swim! Can you see their glistening heads poking from driving the cacti arms, beneath?
#1 of Curacao Beaches: Kenepa Grandi
Kenepa Grandi, or Huge Knip, was the crown jewel of my Curaçao seaside investigation, and this crown jewel sits, fittingly, in the direction of the “head” of the island, on the northwest idea, about an hour north of Willemstad.
As I confessed in my write-up about why Curaçao was so wonderful for travel, I actually begun crying at the very first glimpse of Kenepa Grandi, it is that wonderful. Although Playa Jeremi is quietly gorgeous, Kenepa Grandi is these types of an expanse of best turquoise water that it knocks the wind out of one’s upper body.
So by now, you’ve possibly figured out why the sweet, orange-flavored liqueur known as “Blue Curaçao” is colored that luminous turquoise… it’s the shockingly precise colour of the island’s ocean shorelines!
When I visited, however there were really a handful of people today on Kenepa Grandi beach — swimming and snorkeling in the h2o, and trotting all-around the overlook cliff (from which I took these shots) — the seaside is so extensive that it did not sense crowded.
My tears of pleasure fell even speedier, viewing this regional father and son’s bonding chat as they gestured out to horizon. What might they have been talking about?
Are Curacao Beaches the Most effective in the ABC Islands?
Indeed, Curaçao seashores are some of the most gorgeous in the world… and this article doesn’t even touch on the architecturally head-boggling “infinity beach” showcased in my prior write-up! Now I’m aching to know: Which of these three do you like best? Do share!
I was a guest of the Curaçao Tourist Board, but all thoughts and knobby knees are my personal.
