Great for a day at the beach
Mar 2021
There is a three florin entry charge and fee for beach chairs. But, the view and the beach are worth it. There is camera surveillence in the parking are which makes this safer than Playa Santa Martha where our car was vandalized and items stolen. The food a the food and drink bar is very good and reasonably priced. The diving is easy and good for Caribbean diving. We saw a slipper labster there and a mola mola on our first visit in 1996

Fabulous beach day
Dec 2020 • Family
Staff are so accommodating. White sand and the water is so clear, was like swimming in a pool with fish.

Great beach with decent amenities/bar
Mar 2020
If you are looking for a great beach to go to when visiting Curacao, Playa PortoMari is it. Did not take a ship excursion, rather we took a cab (same cab driver we had on a prior trip to the island - we saved her business card and called her). The drive was about 30 minutes from the city. Once you get off the main road it feels like you are out in the middle of nowhere until you see the Williwood sign. We were at the beach on a Saturday with mostly local people - didn't see any other cruise towels. If you bring snorkel gear, go to the large rock wall area on the left and swim out a ways. Also try the local beer. Even liked seeing the resident pig (beach is known for this). Would definitely go back to this beach. Had a great time!

Nice beach

Another good beach to explore on the island, parking and facilities for a small charge, well worth a visit.

Crystal clear waters
Mar 2020 • Couples
The most beautiful beach we visited in the island. With a bonus of some wild pigs roaming the beach. The water is so clear that you can’t get over how beautiful it is.

Beautiful & Fun
Mar 2020 • Couples
We are currently staying in Curaçao and decided to drive out to Playa PortoMari. We spent a day here and loved every minute of it. It does get busy with cruise folks so make sure you get there early enough so you can grab lounge chairs either under an umbrella or tree for shade. We we were lucky enough to share a large gazebo like structure with some other folks to shelter us from the hot sun.
As others have mentioned, the water is a beautiful turquoise blue and the sand is powdery with and soft. We didn’t eat at the restaurant however did enjoy a beer there. Washrooms and showers also were provided.
The highlight of our day were the free roaming pigs. Two of them visited the beach on a number of occasions during the day. You are not suppose to feed them and they don’t like being touched however they don’t mind being the centre of attention when the flock of people circle them and snap photos like paparazzi.
Plenty of parking as well on site.

Fun day at the beach!

Very nice beach
Mar 2020 • Couples
One of those beaches I liked in Curacao. The view was very nice, and we spent almost 2 hours there. There were restrooms and a bar as well. I didn’t try snorkeling here, but I wish i had.

Sublime

A stunning beach! When you enter, walk to the right and go to the far end. On our last beach excursion, we were the only people there. We enjoyed an afternoon in secluded paradise. Sublime!

Nice beach
Feb 2020
This is a nice beach not too large but has everything you might want. The road to Playa PortoMari had you wondered if you were going to the end of the earth but then turn a corner and there was a huge car park with dozens of cars.
