Playa Lagun is one of our favorite dive and snorkel sites, because it is surrounded by high cliffs and it feels like a natural aquarium. Near the wall you can admire all the beautiful corals and sponges. You can also spot many starfish, seahorses, lobsters and hedgehog fish. If you are lucky, you will also encounter a lionfish or a moray eel. There is also a big chance that you will even spot a turtle in the water of Playa Lagun.

When you’re diving at Playa Lagun, you’ll feel like you are in an underwater paradise, a real aquarium. An unforgettable experience if it is your first-time diving or snorkeling in Curaçao.

When you arrive at Playa Lagun, you will see many fishing boats. Playa Lagun is very popular among the local fishermen.
