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.

Situated on the island of Curacao, You should consider dropping by whether or not you are staying very close. When you need to spend the afternoon away from tourist-filled hotspots, you might want to plan a visit to Playa Jeremi.

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.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. The water in the area is fit for snorkeling, so grab your equipment if you want to do some underwater exploration.
