Daaibooi Beach
 

 

Nestled between the spectacular rocky cliffs by the beautiful sparkling clear waters and sunny skies lays the famous DAAIBOOI BEACH. This beach is a favorite with locals and tourists for its unspoiled nature and excellent hospitality facilities. DAAIBOOI is one of the most pristine beaches on Curacao.

 

Although many see only the beach as a recreational area, the natural richness of Daaibooi and its surrounding cliffs and very interesting historical artifacts make this an ideal area for more than swimming. Loggerhead turtles are known to nest on this beautiful beach.

 

Hikers can walk on several trails in the area on both cliffs enclosing the beach and in the so called Saliña, a dusty gray landscape in the dry period and wetland in de rainy period full of birds and other characteristic animals.

 

Fisherman shoot the breeze at one end of the beach and work on their boats, while visitors of the beach enjoy barbecues, kids playing in the sand, tourists sun bathing and enjoying the calm water at the other end— a typical Curacao beach scene.

 

Daaibooi is also known for (shore) diving. Divers have seen numerous types of sponges, star corals, pillar corals, brain corals, Elkhorn corals, and gorgonians as well as lots of typical reef fish.

 

This beach has gain popularity the last few years because of the excellent hospitality services, added facilities as well as a cleanup of the beach itself. Now that these things have happened the beauty of this beach shines even greater!
