The Sea Views in Curacao

Curacao 2 - Playa Knip panoramic

The beauty of Curacao was definitely not only in the buildings and décor.  The water was just as beautiful.  The picture above is from Playa Knip.  When we arrived at that beach one morning, no one else was there.  We were beginning to wonder if we should be there, but while we tried to decide we took advantage of the empty beach and snapped some beautiful pictures.  Soon enough people began to show up a the pretty beach.  We spent the day enjoying the sand, sun and water.  The snorkeling at this spot was pretty good too.

Another morning, we set out for another beach, Playa Forti.  We were told it was a good spot to collect sea glass, so we wanted to get there early in the morning, because we thought the selection would get picked over.  Turns out, you could not walk on the beach without at least flip flops because it was just covered in coral and some sea glass.  We walked along and collected some to bring home, and took some pictures of the peaceful location.

And, this was the view from the parking area above before walking down to Playa Forti.

Since there wasn’t really anywhere to relax there, we had to find another beach for the day.  We headed to Santa Maria Beach.  It was a much larger beach than any of the others that we went to, but we found a little spot to hang out for the day off to the side of this dock.

Some of the other sea views we captured were taken while we were on a catamaran exploring around the island.

And, we spent each chance we could exploring the water snorkeling.  We found some beautiful coral and fish.

From above water, we found rocks that were very populated with beautiful snails.

We tried to capture sunset pictures, but each chance we had it would disappear behind the clouds when it got closer to the water.

The light at that time of day is always our favorite time to take pictures.  This was outside of our resort on the stairs built into the cliff leading into the water.

The flowers and palm trees around the resort were amazing.
