The Kokomo Beach House Reef is a very nice and pretty reef dive that is easily accessible from shore. The Car Wrecks, is located east of the Kokomo Beach House Reef at Vaersenbaai.
Kokomo is the ideal beach to enjoy a quiet day with the whole family, have a great lunch, dive into one of their delicious cocktails or just fall in love with the crystal clear water!! They have lounges available to relax if want to, or read a book, or just hang out with an ice cold beer with your friends!!
Simply Kokomo Beach is the place on Curaçao to make your own experiences into anything you want or nothing at all! It is your choice, enjoy the moments!
Traveler Tip: Kokomo has no entrance-fee, 24/7 secured parking and is very child friendly. To increase your enjoyment of the beach, it must be said that they probably have the best beach chairs on the island. If you decide that a weekend visit is better, that’s great! Because on Sunday’s they have their famous happy hour from 17:00-18:00 with the best live music combined with a DJ spinning the golden oldies.

Car Wrecks at Vaersenbaai
Check out what Natasha Brown says from HotCars.com in her article titled “19 Photos Of Tanks And Trucks Found Underwater“; “This former military truck is located off the coast of Vaersenbaai on the island of Curaçao in the Caribbean, a 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 make for an adequate replacement and have encouraged flora and fauna to return to Curaçao.
The 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 photo.
