What's Located Around Royal Sea Aquarium Resort

The delightful beaches on Curacao are touted by locals as some of the most relaxing (or active!) spots that you'll find on the island.

This lodging is located on the coast, so guests can spend all day every day under the sun if that will make them happy. These accommodations are located outside of Curaçao's more crowded areas, which means guests here may be alone on the beach, allowing them to experience a true escape from the crowds found in town.
