Curacao speaks to the curious explorer in all of us!
Largest of the ABC (including Aruba and Bonaire) Islands, Curaçao is home to some of the most bio-diverse reefs in the Caribbean. The sheltered southern coast is rich in coral, and suitable for divers of all levels, with little in the way of adverse conditions at any of the popular dive sites.
Divers and snorkelers never seem to be able to stop talking about the beauty of scuba diving Curacao. Let us assure you this is with good reason.
Curaçao, one of the most exceptional islands in the Caribbean, is also home to more than 35 captivating beaches, a diverse heritage spanning 55 different cultures, ‘live and let live’ attitude and unrivaled European architecture. Its capital city, Willemstad — a UNESCO World Heritage site — with its iconic colorful Handelskade backdrop and roster of museums, monuments, flavorful restaurants and shopping, was selected in 2013 as one of the Top 5 Cities in the Caribbean by Condé Nast Traveler’s readers.
Curaçao’s natural beauty, pristine diving and snorkeling sites are a favorite with divers and adventure seekers, and its beaches and idyllic weather, situated on the outer fringes of the Hurricane Belt, has won it further accolade and recognition.
In fact, Curaçao was once again named as one of the Best Overall Caribbean and Atlantic Dive Destinations for 2021 during the 28th Annual Scuba Diving Magazine’s Reader Choice Awards.
