Beaches to visit or stay away from.
My wife and I are cruising on NCL the first part of March with our 2 Grand children (ages 10 and 7). I am looking for suggestions of Public beaches we can go to that are nice and safe, and of course have all the creature comforts. This is our second time to Paradise Island. The first time we spent the day at Atlantis and loved it, However as we were planing things to do this time it would cost a small fortune for the four of us to spend the day there. So we decided to find a spot on our own. Any suggestions of local beaches to go to or beaches to stay away from? Thanks and wish us luck. This is the first trip like this with the kids. It will be something we will either do often or never again. LOL!
the beaches are located on the back strip of baystreet like Love Beach Very Queit as well
Cabbage beach and Cable beach are two perfectly good beaches.
Cabbage beach is a public beach that has chairs and umbrellas you can rent. The water is pretty clear and the beach itself is clean despite it being public. The beach itself is located on Paradise Island past the Atlantis and you can get there easily by taking a cab. Keep in mind that because this beach is public so it can get pretty crowded with tourists sometimes.
Cable beach is another very popular beach however, you are going to have to pay a resort to use it. The Melia offers day passes so you can use their facilities for the day which is something I highly recommend doing. The beach comes with chairs and umbrellas that you can use. The Melia has a pool with a hot tub and a swim up bar. I'm not sure how much a day pass costs but I can't imagine it being more than 30 bucks per person.
I like the beaches Alice in Wonderland and Superior Producer. These are the most beautiful places in Curacao, <snip> where you can relax or you can do scuba diving and snorkeling (island was voted as top 3 places in the caribbean where you can do scuba diving and snorkeling). Have a nice day!
