Swimming with turtles at Playa Grandi Curacao
Playa Grandi beach (Playa Piskado) on Curacao is famous for its turtles. It is only 10 minutes by car from Grote Knip. Go into the sea, put on your snorkel and watch the beautiful turtles swimming around you.
One of the best experiences in Curacao is swimming with the turtles here. It is almost guaranteed that you will get to see them, because they know that there is food (the fishermen clean their catch on the beach and throw the remains back into the sea). The turtles are used to people and are not afraid to approach them!
We recommend to visit this beach early. The fishermen clean the fish in the morning hours. The fish waste gets into the sea and attracts the turtles. An advantage is that it is quiet then, in the afternoon are often many tourists. Tip: Snorkel at the edges.
