Vaersenbaai Car Wrecks at Kokomo Beach
Discover the Vaersenbaai Car Wrecks, located east of the the house reef at Kokomo Beach Curacao.
This is popular diving spot with lots of vehicles and a few shipwrecks for more advanced and experienced scuba divers. Amazingly, these vehicles were deliberately placed on the ocean floor as part of a project to try and provide a habitat for the fish and plants which used to be found on the coral reef in the area.
Although much of the coral has been destroyed, these trucks and cars have made an excellent artificial reef and has become an adequate replacement to encourage flora and fauna to return to Curacao.
The Vaersenbaai Car Wrecks is a fun deep shore or boat dive site that has of dozens of car wrecks! It is a great spot to take some unique souvenir photos plus it is a wonderful spot to have a beach day.
