Pestbaai, also known as Lovers Leap, is perfect for divers who enjoy rappelling! The 'parking' area is on top of a 30 - 40 foot cliff which you need to climb down to get to the strip of sand below. The actual entry into the water is very easy - once you've navigated the cliff in full scuba gear. The reef is a short swim out and usually flat calm with minimum current. There's plenty to see on this 'typical' Curacao dive site, but there's been a lot of trash dumped on part of the reef - large, flat boards - which is a terrible shame. After the dive, you'll need to climb back up the cliff… It's a pretty dive site but having checked out the shore entry ourselves, we chose to dive it from a boat instead. If you're looking for a lovely, easy shore dive site, there are many better choices. Suzy (at) the-dive-bus (dot com)
