Playa Jeremi

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. There are no facilities and no restaurants here, but there is a beautiful, pristine beach.

Located on the island of Curacao, You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you're staying in the immediate vicinity. Playa Jeremi stands out because it's the ideal location for escaping the hustle of Curaçao's urban areas. Most other beaches you'll come across in Curaçao may be just as beautiful, but tend to be busier because they're right around the corner from the area's major hotels and resorts.

How to Access The Beach
You'll need to take a car here, but there is a parking area just off the beach. On the scenic coastal road in between Lagun and Sabina Westpunt is where you'll find the paved entrance to Playa Jeremi.

Amenities and Ambiance

Snorkeling and diving are popular in the calm waters of this bay on Curacao's western coast. The entire beach is surrounded by lush mangrove forests and features some really nice, cream colored sand. It can be a little rocky in spots, but you should still be fine without shoes. The waters just off shore are exceptionally clear and brilliantly blue, great for casual swimmers.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site. You will find the water here is fit for snorkeling, so grab your equipment if you want to check out what lies beneath the surface.

Playa Jeremi provides a quiet and relaxing enclave, in part because the surrounding area is far from urbanized.
