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.

Positioned on the island of Curacao, You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. There are plenty of advantages to visiting a beach that hasn't been "discovered" by thousands of tourists; less popular beaches like Playa Jeremi are usually more relaxing than those overrun with fellow travelers.

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, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside. The water in the area is clear enough for snorkeling, so grab your equipment if you've been hoping to get in some underwater exploration.

If you desire shores which provide a relaxing haven, then you should enjoy Playa Jeremi; it's back in a less urbanized area of the region.
