MAR 3 BEACHES BIRDSEYE AND WHIMSY

Heading to the Western side of Curacao

semi-overcast 24 °C

WESTPUNT BEACHES
Curacao is a big Island. We drive for 50 plus kilometres and spend the day exploring the beaches of the West Coast. First is Playa Laguna tucked into the rocks, then Kenepa Grande with its beautiful sand beach, and then Little Knip, a little cove off the beaten track. Of course we snorkle them all, and check out the local scenery. The waters here are the calmest and clearest we have been in so far, especially on Little Knip, where we can see down 100 feet when swimming out far from shore looking for the drop off. Except for Little Knip, the coral and fishes do not rank up to any of the sites we explored on Bonaire. We have been spoiled. Little Knip however has some nice coral, especially lots of elk horn formations, and more fish including some bigger fish further out. The water is calm and gentle and we enjoy its sensual softness. We lunch at a quirky restaurant in Westpunt, full of birds and whimsy. I decide to forego the iguana stew and decide instead to adopt one as a friend. We even found some interesting tree paintings while exploring the area.
