Playa Grandi, the place to spot wild sea turtles
Playa Grandi, also known as Playa Piskado, is a small typical fishing beach in the north of Curaçao. The best thing about this place is that you have a good chance to admire sea turtles up close! With a bit of luck, you’ll visit Playa Grandi just as the fishermen return to the beach and clean up their catch of the day. They throw the remains of the fresh fish into the sea. Both large and small sea turtles love this tasty meal. Grab your snorkel, drop into the water and swim among these beautiful creatures. Swimming with wild sea turtles is an unforgettable experience, but be careful. The sea turtles that live on Curaçao are seriously endangered. So be calm, don’t touch them and respect them in their natural environment.
