Curacao Marine Park

Stretching from the Breezes Hotel to the eastern tip of the island is this unofficially protected area. Currently, the law does not make it a designated marine preserve, but they are working towards that goal and continue to remain vigilant in keeping the area pristine.

The park covers a total area of 1482 acres of reef systems and 1077.4 acres of inner bays.

The marine park was established in 1983 and is well-known for its great snorkeling, diving and educational opportunities. Here, visitors may encounter sea turtles, rays, sharks, barracudas, more than 350 species of fish, and 65 species of coral.
