Curaçao is a small island North of the coast of Venezuela. The shore is mostly rocky but contains several bays and beaches. The reef drops off close to shore along the Southern shore. Along the Northern shore the drop-off is farther from shore but still reachable while swimming.
This means that the most dive spots are accessible from the beach. This is one of the easier ways. More difficult is the entrance to a rocky coast or when the top of a cliff is one or more metres above sea level.
By the prevailing wind from the North-East, the sea along the South Coast is usually quiet. This is a huge contrast to the sea along the North coast where high waves crashing against the cliffs. This makes diving on the North Coast less attractive and can even be dangerous. Therefore never dive without sufficient experience and a guide that knows what to do. Diving along the South Coast is generally usually straightforward.
The azure blue sea is rich with many different species of fish and underwater animals that are perfect for the underwater photographer who would like to capture images that no one else has. There are many different types of scuba diving spots that are ideal for divers of all levels
