The pristine beaches on Curacao are one of the least known aspects of the island. These beaches do not spread across the shoreline for miles, but rather, they are smaller and more secluded since they are situated in the inlets. The better beaches are located in western Curacao. This region is commonly referred to as West Point.
Although there are officially 38 beaches located on the island, there are numerous other beaches along the northern and eastern shores. Certain beaches contain fee-based changing room while other beaches do not charge to use facilities. The more secluded beaches often do not have public restrooms or changing rooms.
