Boka St. Michiel Curacao
Small boats bob in the bay of this original fishing village just west of town. The dive club on the pier has public restrooms and a restaurant. The small beach, also known as Boka Sami, has no shade and little sand, but nice water, a small fishing pier and a floating platform. There are two simple, good fish restaurants nearby. You can also explore the salt marsh or follow a path uphill on the west side of the beach.
A small bay 30 minutes from town with a beach where you can snorkel well along the rocky reefs or in the small fishing bay. Currently you will find some pergolas with shade and on weekends there are driving snack bars. West of the beach, a small path leads to a rugged nature reserve.
