PLAYA KANOA

/ 3

Playa Kanoa is one of the few popular beaches on the north coast of Curaçao. The bay has a rugged coastline and is very popular with surfers. Diving at Playa Kanoa is only possible in calm weather conditions. The underwater scenario consists of a slowly descending plateau, with a beautiful coral reef that lies relatively far from the coast. Playa Kanoa gives you the feeling of swimming in an aquarium.

The reef is between depths of 15 to 30 meters covered with coral and sponges, with seaweed in between. At a depth of about 30 meters starts a sand strip that runs parallel to the coast and where sometimes rays can be seen.

Warnings

Diving at Playa Kanoa is only possible with sufficient experience and in calm weather conditions. Always dive with an experienced, local buddy. Beware of surfers. Playa Kanoa has a small fishing beach, watch out for boats while swimming out of the bay. Th
