EAT GLITTER FOR BREAKFAST AND SHINE ALL DAY:
A selection of some of our favorite options for breakfast.
The owner, Nico, is a former butcher from Amsterdam. He only uses quality meat what he imports himself from Holland, and also his cheese he imports from local Dutch farmers. Great sandwiches with a good cup of coffee.

If you want to make breakfast at home, here you'll find a nice selection of bread, fresh croissants, eggs, bacon and everything else you need to make breakfast. They have one of those cool machines where you can get fresh orange juice and see how the oranges get squeezed. Since this is a supermarket you can also get all other essentials like butter, coffee, thee, sugar, milk etc.

Sometimes you feel like you want to have toast for breakfast, or as the Dutch say it: "A Toasty". For this we go to Zansi where they als serve a good coffee. They have more breakfast options, not a lot, but what they have is good. Only negative might be that they only start serving as of 09.00.

Sometimes you want breakfast in style and for this we enjoy one of the better hotels like this one. Especially when it's really hot we like that they serve inside in the cool airco :-). A lot of times you see the guests of cruise ships arriving and it's always entertaining to look at other people right. After breakfast we enjoy to stroll around in the Riffort and along the Handelskade.

GET YOUR VITAMIN SEA:
Oceanholics and those in need of beach therapy, these are the beaches with the best vitamin sea:
This may not be one of the fanciest beaches but we really enjoy going here on a Saturday or Sunday. Then this place is filled up with locals for who this place is like their extended outside living room. They celebrate birthday's, have familie gatherings and we love the smell of all the BBQ grilling. The people are so friendly, the vibe is awesome, lots of things to see, we love it. While here you can also combine it with a stop at Fort Beekenburg a few hundred meters further away. You can climb the steps to see how the canons where placed and enjoy the view. Again a few hundred meters further you'll find one of the best places to snorkel at the 'thugboat'.

This is a nice place because you actually find four different beach clubs. The first one is Papagayo, where everything is fancy and modern white. Then next to you'll find Zest, where it is also fancy but a bit more classic. The next is Zansi, one of our favorites because it is very traditional/Caribbean. And the fourth is one of our new favorites Coco's beach where you can order a burger which is being served as three mini burgers with different flavors. For all these places you pay entrance only once. You pay extra for sunbeds and they offer different options to choose from. Waiters and waitresses serve you at the comfort of your subbed, so the ultimate relaxation. You'll also find some little shops, restaurants and a casino for if you're feeling lucky. If you plan to stay an entire day we advise you to come early to secure a place with nice shade.

It all starts with the boulevard where you find some nice shops and many different restaurants to choose for. Going down the stairs you'll find a beautiful beach from where you have easy acces to the sea. You can choose to chill at five different beach clubs like the Lions Dive hotel, Madero Ocean Club, Wet 'n Wild, Cabana Beach and Mood beach. Madero is in the middle and they also have a pool and at the beach they create a nice vibe with background music which always get's us in a good mood.

This is a stylish and modern beach club with restaurant and different kind of sun beds to choose from. Most of the Sunday they have a DJ playing on the beach. When you walk in the sea you'll find out that this is actually a pool with overflow and filled with fresh seawater.

This beach belongs to the hotel and you have to buy a day pass for which you also get acces to the pool area and sun beds. We enjoy going here on a Sunday because on that day you'll find a lot of locals with their boats at the end of this beach. Great atmosphere with their bbq's and music. If you like quit don't go on a Sunday or stay at the beginning of the beach. You can combine you visit with the Sunday morning breakfast or lunch buffet. And you can split your party between those who wanna play golf and the ones who wanna stay at the beach.

This is like a 60 minutes drive from the Jan Thiel area and it's worth it. White sand beach, great atmosphere with both tourist and locals chilling at this beach. The only thing we don't like that much is that their sun beds are not so comfortable. They have a great spot to get a massage on the beach. We like to combine going to this place while visiting other beaches on this side of the island as well.

Kleine Knip and Grote Knip are located on the west side of the island, a less populated and quieter region (Bandabou). Therefore it is the perfect place to to get away from it all and spend a relaxing day on the beach. You will find the stunning coves following a scenic route across Curacao. Since both beaches are public beaches, no entrance fee payment is required. But there are beachbeds and umbrellas available for rent, along with snorkeling gear, transparent kayaks and paddle boards.

There are so many beaches in Curacao that are extraordinary, However this little gem of a beach is one of our favorites, the views are spectacular, the water crystal clear. You can also see turtles from here. Watch the "screaming man" at the Bay of Turtles. His name is Nell and he is the patron saint of turtels. They actually listen to his "shouting", which is very interesting. The fishermen have been living in symbiosis with turtles for decades. The catch of the day is cleaned by the sea and made ready for sale, the offal are then thrown into the sea. Here we say, if you take something away from the sea, you have to give the sea something back.

Don't be surprised when you are snorkeling and you see a wild pig swimming. They are called 'wild' pigs but in fact they are very sweet and intelligent. Since they found out that tourist trade food for photo, petting and swimming sessions :-) You may have never seen such a beautiful beach with these amazing Curacao colors, dark blue and green and light blue where the sand starts and it opens like a giant swimming pool or even better aquarium with all sea life present. We love the bar which serves a good menu of drinks and food. Mixed crowd of all nationalities. Different than the other beaches more close to Willemstad.

If you love snorkeling this it is a great place, if you don’t it's just a mediocre beach with not a great swim. Very very nice snorkeling.

DISCOVER THE ISLAND'S UNDERWATER WORLD:
The island offers +75 dive and snorkel sites and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a bad one. From an abundance of sea turtles to some of the most vibrant coral you’ll find anywhere in the world, to wrecks both deep and shallow, there’s something for everyone to experience here. When you dive into the water, you are welcomed into an underwater world filled with colour, life and beauty. You can dive or snorkel a hundred times in the same area and still see something new and unexpected.
Based on the very best scientifically research, done by my mom, this is one of the best places to learn to dive. So this is the place where our children learned and got their Padi. They offer not only courses but also guided dives. Did you hear about the Lion fish? Experienced divers can go with them for a "Lion fish hunt", and afterwards you can take your self-shot fish home for the BBQ.

Likely the most visited and well-known snorkel location on the island, Tugboat is wonderful. If you book a snorkeling boat tour, this is where they will probably take you. But you need not pay to access this great spot unless you love a boat trip, because it's accessible by car.

Perfectly suited for divers and snorkelers. This dive site landmark is an old decaying shark fence now covered in corals and sponges. This location is home to most amazing underwater creatures, including sea horses, frogfish, eels, flounders and many more. A large octopus calls the rubble his home as well. Director’s Bay truly is a great dive site for macro photography on Curacao.

When entering the water, you can sea the turtles right away guaranteed. Also, there is a change of seeing a group of hundreds of masbangu’s. The reef itself is a beautiful reef that has a mixture of all kind of corals and other creatures. Starting from the shoulder of the reef to the bottom of the reef. When turning around and getting close to the shallow part of the reef you will see lost of turtles again.

The reef is hilly and you will find big mushroom shaped formations of boulder star corals, stove pipe sponges and brown tube sponges as well as swarms of creole wrasses and blue tangs. If you are lucky you can see green sea turtles or eagle rays.

The unique sub marine experience was one of the main reasons for Bill & Melissa Gates to visit the island. Planet Earth is mostly covered by water, most of which is completely unexplored. Few people have ever seen first hand what is below the Ocean surface. 12 men have walked on the moon, yet only three have seen the absolute deepest place in the Ocean right here on earth. Divers can go to around 130ft and see the shallowest spots in this increadable and beautiful world, but this is a chance to see what very, very few people have ever seen.......life in the world below where no diver or even sunlight can reach. It feels as though you've left the earth and at this point you are exploring another world so intense that man cannot exsist outside the protection of this increadable little sub. Guided by a very professional team that oversees the whole adventure from divers, Techs, boat captains, sub pilots and suport staff with an immense amount of knowledge of this undersea world and the hearts to help protect the life and creatures that live in this vastly unexplored world. The price is around $ 800,- per person but that only sounds expensive to people who never had this experience. Adriaan 'Dutch' Schrier is the founder, developer and co-owner of the Curacao Sea Aquarium. He opened the aquarium in 1984 together with his partner, Rudy Pizziolo. He was also the driving force behind the opening of the Dolphin Academy, the Dolphin Therapy Center and the Dolphin Suites Hotel and the Substation Curacao. Acquiring the Curasub submarine and the research vessel ‘Chapman’.

This 1 of the 7 places in the entire world that offers this unique experience. Unlike scuba diving, which requires more gear and more courage, going on an Aquafari trip is easy for underwater sightseers. The Aquafari scooter is easy to master and too much fun not to try. Take your friends and family to experience an adventurous underwater journey! Dive easily under the sea on your personal water scooter accompanied by a certified Aquafari diver. See a variety of beautiful fish and other deep-sea creatures as they swim on the bottom, roll on the surface or hover anywhere between the colorful coral reef in the ocean.

VACATION CALORIES DON'T COUNT
These are some of the many great restaurants we, and most of our guests, really enjoy.
If you're like me, someone who really enjoys classic food like burgers, steak and fries than this is NOT the place to be! The owner, Martin, serves traditional Caribbean dishes from over 100 year old recipes which he inherited from his mother, grandmother and great grandmother. If you want to get a culinary taste from the island then this is definitely the place to be. To be treated like a life time returning customer give them the best regards from Tommy Coconut (and mention I said they should add a burger to their already great menu!).

BEST ISLAND EXPERIENCES:
Besides diving, snorkeling or beaching there are many great experiences the Island has to offer, here are some of our favorites.
When you climb aboard the Mermaid, you'll be greeted with a warm cup of tea or coffee. Captain Cor and his crew create a great atmosphere that makes you feel welcome on board! Special guests of Tommy Coconut can be picked up with a limo when we make your reservation. The Mermaid sets sails along the southern coast of Curaçao. From the boat you'll see Fuik, Duivelsklip and Oostpunt, a completely inaccessible region of Curaçao that has been set aside as a wildlife preserve. Sometimes dolphins swim alongside the boat. Then the Mermaid turns southward and heads out into the blue sea, towards Klein Curaçao. Exclusive to the Mermaid, Captain Cor and his crew have the only beach house on Klein Curaçao. With a large thatched-roof patio, picnic benches and cool drinks it's a great shady shelter from the heat of the sun. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. The Mermaid provides all the facilities you need for a nice day on the beach.

Westcoast Beach Hopping and Blue Room Adventure with the Powerboat. We know the captain (Prince) since he was a little boy and played with our children. It has always been his dream to become a captain and isn't it remarkable when people accomplish their dreams. Spend the day skimming around the Curaçao coast and stopping at some of its picturesque beaches on this full-day powerboat tour. With only a few seats on the boat and only one tour a week, make sure to book early so you don’t miss out on this easygoing way to discover what the Curaçao beaches have to offer. Stop at locations both popular and secluded: go snorkeling at Playa Lagun, discover the alien lights of the Blue Room Cave, and maybe see some sea turtles at Playa Piskado.

If you're with a group and some like to play golf and others do not, the others can stay ay the beautiful beach here. The entire enviorement of this golf course is amazing. It's a real treat to walk this course with so many different unique, and sometimes even spectacular, views. They also offer sunset golf for those who like to play only 9 holes. To make it more special try to go there with a boat instead of a car; so much fun :-)

Up on till today there is not published 1 photo which does justice to how beautiful it is to see the Blue Room Cave. If you wanna have fun go with Captain Goodlife! If you want a bigger adventure on your own you can walk. If you go to the beach of Santa Cruz, park the car, and walk straight on. You'll see a little path on your left that leads up into the bush. Follow this path for about 5-10 min. and you end up on a little black beach. Follow the sign that says Boca Fluit. This takes you trough a dusty nature road, and after about a 20 min. walk, you'll see a tree with a blue dot. Then you follow the blue dots on the trees and then on the rocks. This leads you to the blue room. Watch out!! Its a hot walk so bring water, make sure to wear swim shoes because the rocks a very Sharp and dangerous on flip flops. This is not for childeren!!! If you carefully walk of the rocks into the water, follow the dots for the best spot to enter, you can see on your right the blue room. If its low tide, you dont have to dive, you have about 20 cm breathing space. Otherwise you have to swim about a meter under water. All in you'll have a beautiful adventure.

This leads you to the blue room. Watch out!! Its a hot walk so bring water, make sure to wear swim shoes because the rocks a very Sharp and dangerous on flip flops. This is not for childeren!!! If you carefully walk of the rocks into the water, follow the dots for the best spot to enter, you can see on your right the blue room. If its low tide, you dont have to dive, you have about 20 cm breathing space. Otherwise you have to swim about a meter under water. All in you'll have a beautiful adventure.
This is an area with more than 10 beautiful Boka's (inlets) where three species of turtles nest. A boka is, in fact, an inlet. Shete Boka stands for 'seven inlets'. Years ago, the environmental group Amigu di Tera arranged excursions in this area along seven bays. The park begins at the beautiful Boka Tabla where large, unpredictable waves crush against an underground cave. An impressive experience!

While driving your jet ski, you’ll be amazed at the gorgeous and quite varied coastline consisting of cliffs, small beaches and coves. Furthermore you will be surprised at the lagoon seeing the luxurious houses, yachts, mangroves and the Tafelberg (Table Mountain). You will have a short break for a refreshing swim and cruise out to one of Curacao’s best snorkeling sites- a tugboat shipwreck, which is home to all sorts of tropical fish. Located on the protected southeast side of Caracas Bay, the tugboat site is accessible only by boat. The wreck rests after sinking 25 years ago. It’s not uncommon if you even see flying fish and turtles on your way or sometimes even see dolphins. Surf the Caribbean waves and maintain full control of your jet ski!! The one hour tour shows you the nicest areas at the lagoon and you have a short break for swimming.
