Day trip to Klein Curacao
A trip to Klein Curacao is quite a must when you are here!
The small, deserted bounty island is reached by boat in approx. 2 hours.
From the Caracas Bay on the main island, you sail towards the eastern point of Curacao and then onto the open seas.
The sea is often wilder during the outward journey than on the return. It is therefore advisable not to eat (too much) before departure, also because you will be spoiled with a nice breakfast once on Klein Curacao. Keep your eyes open for flying fish during the trip and sometimes you will even spot some dolphins!
Once you arrive on Klein Curacao turtles are often swimming next to the boat, beautiful to see! And the island itself… the sand is brighter than bright and the sea more intense blue than you have ever seen before. The long beach invites you for a beautiful walk, while searching for colorful shelves and little stones. Make sure to look for the many curious hermit crabs as well.
It is now time to snorkel, scuba dive or for a walk to the old iconic pink lighthouse and the shipwreck, which you will find on the other side of the island. In the early afternoon fresh lunch is being served. And without loud music, shops and restaurants it is so easy to come to yourself and relax the day away with a book or simply enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Around 4 o’clock you leave the island to go back to Curacao. And while watching the sunset you will for sure be so happy for experiencing this unforgettable day.
There are several operators offering trips to Klein Curacao. You can choose from a sturdy sea-going vessel, catamarans to a power boat.
The facilities on the island also differ per operator. A few have their own beach house (more shade and comfort). Others offer (only some) shade cloths on the island. Make sure to bring your snorkel gear, your sunscreen and a towel, that is actually all you need.
Breakfast, lunch and drinks are included with most tours. The only additional costs are for alcoholic beverages.
We are more than happy to make your reservation. Make sure to book at least a couple of days in advance as availability is limited.
