Vaersenbaai Car Wrecks at Kokomo Beach Curaçao
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, full of dozens of car wrecks, and a great spot to take some unique souvenir photos. PLUS, this is an easy spot to spend the day because Vaersenbaai is home to Kokomo Beach Curacao, where a restaurant and bar, public restrooms and showers are available. This is a nice, pretty, reef dive and snorkel site, easily accessible from shore.
