Playa Grandi, better known as Playa Piskado, is a small typical fishing beach in the north of Curaçao. From a distance you can already see the fishing boats floating on the water. When the fishermen return to the beach, they clean 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 and are attracted to it. If you are on Playa Grandi during this moment, there is a good chance to see the sea turtles. Because of the crystal clear water you can already spot them swimming around and occasionally they show themselves on the surface of the water.
Face to face with a sea turtle
It is even more impressive to meet these beautiful animals underwater. Grab your snorkel, drop into the water via the jetty and swim among these beautiful creatures.
Note! The sea turtles that live on Curaçao are critically endangered. So it is a very special experience, but be calm, don’t touch them and respect them in their natural environment.
To experience a perfect evening on the water we definitely recommend booking the Sunset Sailing Trip from BlueFinn Charters. During this 2.5-hour trip you will discover the east side of Curaçao by catamaran. The catamaran sails along Caracasbaai, Fuikbaai and the Spanish Water. The azure blue water, palm trees, beach houses and the beautiful coastline give you tropical vibes.
The Sunset Sailing Trip is an unforgettable experience. The trip with the catamaran is comfortable. There are plenty of spots to relax, on benches, or in nets where you hang above the water. And the enthusiastic and humorous crew wants to give you a carefree time. They tell you everything about life along the waters, prepare delicious drinks and snacks and put on some nice music.
Ultimate enjoyment while the sun goes down
When the sun goes down, the catamaran will anchor. The catamaran now floats over the waves, you can hear the water lapping against the boat. Admire the beautiful view over the red, yellow and orange colored horizon. The glow of the sun reflects off the dancing water. Slowly you see the sun sink into the sea. You think about the moments of happiness you experienced that day. Cheers to another successful day!
When the sun has set, you sail back. On the way back you will be surprised by all the lights you see from the water. From a distance you can hear the music of the beach parties and you sail past the vibrant nightlife of Curaçao.
This jaw dropping, bounty beach is definitely our number 1. Playa Kalkiis by far the most tropical spot on Curaçao, with the clear blue water, palm trees and the white sand. You even start to doubt yourself if this place is even real. From the parking lot you walk down some steep stairs to get to the beach.
Tip: Playa Kalki is the perfect place to take a dip to discover the beautiful underwater world.
