Daaibooi Beach near Coral Estates Luxury Resort
Daaibooi is a beach on the Caribbean island of Curaçao, located close to the village of Sint Willibrordus, a 30 minutes drive to the north-west of Willemstad. The beach is in a secluded bay, surrounded by the overlooking cliffs of Porto Mari on the west and Coral Estates on the east.
This remote beach is the perfect starting point for a beautiful shore dive, snorkel or just a refreshing swim inside the large sandy plateau.
For divers, the drop off is far from shore but worth the surface swim due to the healthy coral biodiversity that includes soft coral, Elephant Ear sponges and brain corals.
