The Best Snorkeling Spots In Curaçao

Curaçao, a favorite holiday destination among many Dutch, is an exotic island in the southern Caribbean Sea. The temperatures between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius, the coziness, bays with pearly white beaches, the varied landscape and the underwater world ensure that the largest island of the former Netherlands Antilles is very popular.

 

There are more than 60 locations where you can dive and snorkel. The crystal clear water ensures that you have a view of more than 30 meters. The water temperature is around 27 degrees Celsius all year round.
