Playa Grandi

Playa Grandi
Playa Grandi, also known as "Playa Piskado", is a charming beach located on the west coast of Curaçao, near the village of Westpunt. This enchanting piece of paradise is known for its relaxed atmosphere, crystal-clear waters, and colorful marine life, making it a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. The beach owes its nickname "Playa Piskado" to the regular presence of local fishermen who bring in their catch of the day here. Visitors can often watch the fishermen casting their nets from the quay or cleaning their freshly caught fish on the beach. This gives an authentic and lively atmosphere to the area. Furthermore, the beach is known for its friendly encounters with sea turtles, which can often be seen in the waters surrounding the beach. Playa Grandi is an ideal destination for those looking for a quiet and authentic beach experience away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas. Whether you come for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, or just enjoying the beautiful surroundings, Playa Grandi has it all!

Tips from PMI
Bring your snorkeling gear when you go to Playa Grandi. This is because the beach is known for its turtles. If you go snorkeling here, you are almost guaranteed to encounter the turtles! If you have a waterproof case for your phone you can take beautiful photos!
