Your tips Rent a car and get away from Willemstad. Find Kokomo Beach - a newly opened beach with restaurant and shady places to sit. Great food, good service, comfortable sunbeds. Professional dive school. Check the website.
Friendly people and gorgeous weather. Most restaurants offered excellent food and friendly service - Brakkeput Mei Mei was disappointing in all aspects (the only exception). Outside Willemstad and away from the big hotels there's a good variety of beautiful, idyllic beaches, most within a half hour's drive. We snorkeled and our teenage boys went diving. Visibility underwater was an amazing 60+ meters and you almost step on the reef from the beach. Only negative thing about Curacao is the litter everywhere. Paper and plastic bags add nothing to the ambiance of what is otherwise a beautiful island. Despite this, we'll be back.
