02/24/2013 Diver Dan (Avg: 3.55 Review) - Our DM (at the dive shop we were using) told us we should go to Jeremi. We tend to get out early, so we arrived there at about 7AM. It was completely secluded and calm. We were diving the hot season (February) and concerned because of the reports of crime. We never experienced any problems whatsoever. This site had lots of life, a good reef, and plenty to see. Highly recommended.

04/06/2007 Mike at Annapolis (Avg: 4.44 Review) - Secluded--and vulnerable. My wife and I came back from a great dive to find our truck had been broken into, like many others up and down the NW coast of Curacao. The thieves grabbed a bag full of night dive gear, and our wallets. The bag (minus the lights) was found the next day along a desolate road (where many other stolen rejects were dumped). Divers beware--take NOTHING that isn't going with you on the dive, and leave your windows down so they won't be smashed. Go back to the dive shop between each dive for fresh tanks.

02/17/2006 Cheddar Chicklet (Avg: 3.50 Review) - While this beach also has a series of many steps to the beach, it also offers a concrete ramp to carry gear up and down. The parking lot is very secluded and while we were swimming out to the reef there we saw a guy trying to get in our car. We hollered and he took off. After worrying the entire dive we came back to find nothing was broken into. I will tell you that this is a real possibility at many of the beaches in Curacao. No facilities at this secluded beach at all, but the beauty and reef make up for this. A fair kick out to the reef over a sandy bottom is worth the exercise. I saw the biggest green Moray Eel here. Of course it was after my photographer ran out of air and had to return to shore. I think you could put your entire hand down his throat and not touch the sides of his mouth.

11/28/2005 Laszlo Ilyes (Avg: 3.12 Review) - Nice secluded dive! Other than a young Curacaon couple, we had the beach to ourselves. The surf was pretty tough on the day we went. The entry drops off pretty quickly at first so you can get below the waves. The reef was in relatively nice condition, although we found some litter. We found three nice Queen Angelfish and one hawksbill turtle at about 70'. For a picture of one of these angelfish, I welcome you to our website www.geocities.com/amy_laz

09/25/2004 Dan Benson (Avg: 5.00 Review) - This is my favorite dive site on Curacao. NO crowds and spectacular diving. The sand is white, and goes downward to 100+ ft.in a slope that reminds me of a ski run. There is one shade tree and no services.

12/28/2002 Allan Myers (Avg: 3.52 Review) - Parking is right off the road to Westpunt. A little bit of a walk down to the beach. Looked to be a popular beach with the locals that live nearby. The coral was nice, but showed lots of damage (supposedly from the hurricane two years earlier). There was lots of trash, fishing lines and concrete anchors scatter across the reef. Out of all my dives while in Curacao, this is the only one I didn't go back to for a second dive. It probably didn't help that our car was broken into while we were diving.

07/24/2001 Fiona Rattray (Avg: 3.98 Review) - Guidebooks say this is a popular local hangout- true, you'll see lots of local Curacaoans. 2 turtles along the drop-off. Lots of sheet and mountain corals. Orange cup corals on a large rock near the shore, but also monofilament lines from the locals fishing here.

The kick-out is easy, and the reef is excellent. The North end of the village is on the right.
