Quite a few visitors plan to spend their holidays on Curacao because of the beautiful beaches that the region is so well known for. If you are looking forward to the beach more than anything, Bahia Apartments has what you need. This site is situated along the shore, so visitors can spend all of their time soaking up the sun if they so desire.
Obviously, since Bahia Apartments is located right on Playa Lagun, relaxing at the water's edge is one of the main attractions at this property. To escape from the sweltering island sun, beachgoers can take refuge beneath concrete huts for shelter. The waters here are excellent for swimming and snorkeling, which is some of the best in the area. For guests who are eager for some variety, there are some additional beaches worth investigating.

This is certainly one of the more isolated locations you're going to find on Curacao, but it might not be for too much longer as there are development plans for the not-too-distant future. So if you want to see it in all its natural glory, there's no better time than now. It can be found only a quick hike away.
