Snorkelling in turquoise blue water among turtles and dolphins. Looking for shells in the surf. Relaxing in a hammock under a palm tree. Diving among colourful coral reefs and underwater caves. Eating fresh fish with your feet in the sand. Strolling along a tropical beach on an uninhabited island. Does this sound like a dream come true? On Klein Curaçao, everybody can play Robinson Crusoe.
A flat sandbank with a rickety lighthouse, a few fishermen’s shacks, a rusty shipwreck and a simple beach stand with some sun beds and palapa parasols: at first glance it seems that’s all there is to Klein Curaçao. However, the tiny island a very popular day trip destination. Visitors will even put up with the bumpy 2-hour boat ride to come here. Why? ‘Klein’, as locals refer to the island, features one of the most stunning beaches in the Caribbean. It is without a doubt home to the most beautiful diving and snorkelling sites in the entire ABC-archipelago.
