Discover the history surrounding Small Wall

As mentioned above, Small Wall is located adjacent to Director’s Bay – one of Curaçao’s historic landmarks and very near to the famous Tugboat wreck. All three of these dive sites are perfectly suited for divers, snorkelers and beach goers alike.

As the local story goes, it is said that the late Queen Juliana who was invited to Director’s Bay, was so afraid of fish that the Royal Dutch Shell Group caged in a section of the bay for her to increase her enjoyment and ultimately to ease her mind so that she could relax. But you know, that’s just the story.

The fact is that starting in the early 1900’s until departing in 1985, this bay was exclusively for the Directors of the Royal Dutch Shell Group and the Dutch Royal family. Since 1985, the beach and the beautiful surrounding area are now open for public use.
