Discover Westpoint with Powerboat Caribbean
Every Tuesday adventurous people discover the west coast of Curacao with Powerboat Caribbean. A beach-hopping experience you will not forget! If we compare the Klein Curacao day trip to the west coast day trip, the west coast tour is our favourite. Guests that have been on the Klein Curacao and the beach hopping westcoast tour prefer the latter because:
– More snorkel opportunities
– More variety in surroundings
– Possibility of having lunch on shore rather than having to bring your own
– Calmer sea closer to the coast compared to open sea for the Klein Curacao tour
We depart at 10 am from the Fishermen’s Pier at the Caracasbaaiweg. From there we will pass by Curacao’s hotspots: Jan Thiel Beach, Mambo Beach, Punda, the Hilton Hotel, Boca Sami. Then the most beautiful part begins: the beaches! Can you guess which beach we pass by? You will discover Banda Bou (the local way of saying west coast) from the water and the beach-hopping tour is really a unique experience with so much fun!
Because our tours are small-scale, there is room for personal wishes. At Powerboat Caribbean we take pride in making the tour an individual experience rather than a tourist one. We have several hotspots where we go by for sure:
One of our stops is the ‘Blue Room’, famous for the blue light that shines into the cave. It is a beautiful spot for snorkeling and diving and a unique experience in Curacao. Our crew will go with you in the cave to guide you and show you the way. Please listen closely to the instructions that he/she gives.
Playa Grandi or Piskado: Turtle Beach
Another very beautiful stop is Playa Piskado where many turtles can be spotted. They are attracted by the fish remains that fishers throw in the water when they are done cleaning their catch. If you want to see turtles in Curacao this is a place where you have almost 100 % guarantee that you will see them!
Beaches! So many beaches!
Curacao has approximately 38 beaches and the most beautiful ones are found at the west coast. Curacao Travelguide wrote a nice article about this which you can read here. From secluded beaches hardly accessible by car to more commercial beaches with toilets and bars, there is always a beach that has what you need! The captains of our boats are local gems and will give you tips on how to experience the island in a local way and you can ask them any questions you have about the island.
Playa Lagun: Lunch spot and amazing for snorkeling
Playa Lagun is where we are headed for lunch, relaxing and snorkeling. You can bring your own food but we also offer the opportunity to have lunch at La Bahia, located at Playa Lagun. We will beach the boat and we walk upstairs for a delicious, Caribbean lunch, this is for own account. For snorkel lovers Playa Lagun is a popular beach because it has a beautiful underwater life. Once everybody is ready to go we will continue our way down the beaches and we can stop wherever you want. Popular beaches are San Juan and Daaibooi. On our way back we pass by the city center to watch the Pontoon Bridge and our last stop is the Santa Barbara resort where you can swim and relax for a bit. We will arrive back at the Fishermen’s Pier around 5 pm.
