Jan Thiel Beach

If you love to snorkel, a place where that's an option is Seaquarium Beach. To access Seaquarium Beach, vacationers will have to pay a fee of $2.25(USD) per person to enter, which will give you access to great beach amenities and facilities including shopping at area boutiques, aqutic equipment at the water sports center, and beach rentals such as chairs and umbrellas. You can also enjoy wonderful swimming conditions in these placid waters.

A second option for beach-goers to consider is Pampoen Beach. Next to several large hotels, Pampoen has a tendency to get somewhat crowded, particularly on weekends. Locals flock here because it's near a number of residences on the outskirts of Willemstad, and because it's free.

Baoase Beach: Baoase Beach is a pristine private beach part of the Baoase Luxury Resort. Featuring crystal clear water and uninhibited sunshine, Baoase Beach is a little slice of paradise walking distance from your room.
