Blauwbaai (Blue Bay), one of Curaçao's most beloved beaches.
Just offshore is an impressive coral reef, lauded by scuba divers and snorkelers for its easy accessibility.
Swim five minutes from the beach and you will start to see multicolored coral and tropical fish.
Another 15 minutes out and you'll encounter a coral density of 100 percent — meaning the coral covers the entire ocean floor — plus sponges and sea fans galore.
