Blue Bay Beach or Mambo Beach

Recommended Posts

We have a day in Curacao and want a nice beach with chairs, shade and good swimming. Snorkeling a plus, but not essential.

Considering Blue Bay Beach and Mambo Beach.

Which do you recommend? What are pros and cons?

Either will probably be crowded on a cruise ship day.

Mambo has a rock barrier and no rocks in the water, several different areas, beach bars, restaurants, calmer water.

Blue Bay is a more natural beach imo. Beach bar, restaurant,  good snorkeling.

Actually Mambo Beach is beside the Seaquarium and often called Seaquarium Beach.

Yep, on the eastern side of the island.

Both have good websites where one can see the area.

 

We went to Blue Bay as it is natural.  But there is coral there as on most Curacao beaches.
