Under the Sea
Curacao comes to life beneath the shining blue ocean waves, which is why scuba diving and snorkeling are among Curacao's most popular activities. Stop by Epsilon Dive Center to book a class or tour or get outfitted with cutting edge equipment. Discover the magic of Curacao's marine world, whether you're a beginner in search of their first dive or a seasoned diver yearning to get closer to the reef.
Old Quarry Golf Course
Calling golf aficionados: it doesn't get much better than teeing off at the Caribbean's best golf course, Old Quarry.
Tee Time With a View
Find a more scenic golf course than that at Old Quarry. We'll wait. If you're coming up short, it's because few golf courses edge up to a breahtaking ocean, let alone the gleaming Spanish Water. Play a round of golf at Old Quarry, one of de Bekker's favorite "good stuff" destinations on the island.
Delicious food, craft cocktails and panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. That's GOOD STUFF!
Night Out, Island Style
Discover a dining experience you'll never forget. Shore serves up authentic, Caribbean dining in a breathtaking seaside setting. The culinary team at Shore prepares every meal thoughtfully, from fresh catches to perfectly paired wines. A show kitchen, covered outdoor dining, and ocean views create a transformative dining experience.
In Curacao, the "good stuff" always gets better. It's the reason why Curacao tops the bucket list for travelers around the world. And it's the reason why even one visit won't do it justice. Venture out on a stand-up paddleboard. Practice yoga beside the beach. Tee off over ocean views. Discover an island vacation the way you always dreamed it would be.
Though it's true that you'll never be bored on Curaco, it's also true that the "good stuff" is as much about the activites as it is about the intangibles. Those intangibles--sun warming your skin, waves lapping at your feet, a tropical cocktail cooling your hand--are best experienced in person. Once you're here, define "good stuff" for yourself.
