Playa Manzaliña, Curacao
Blog Post - November 12, 2022
Playa Manzaliña, Curacao is a remote beach with great snorkeling.
It's only accessible by dirt roads.
There is a $6 US dollar fee to access these roads.
We drove a 4-wheel drive vehicle and would recommend that to access this beach.
We turned off the main road and headed toward the gate, which was open and had a sign with the hours.
There's a sign that shows the hours they are open and how much it costs.
They are open Monday to Friday from 9am to 6pm and Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 6pm.
The entrance price is $10 Gilders or $6 US Dollars.
From there, we followed the dirt road to a forest area. It looks like a tunnel through the forest.
As we came out of the forest, you come to a residential property with a concrete wall and an entrance to drive in. You drive up to the top and that's where you will pay to get in.
After we paid the $6 US dollars, we turned right and headed past the house. Then the road veers to the left and goes uphill. You can see on the map where we are headed.
After heading down the dirt road, we hit our first right at Manzalina sign. The sign has an arrow pointing the correct way to go.
After following the dirt road, you'll come to a fork in the road. You will go left to Playa Manzalina. If you go right, it will take you to Playa Chiki Hundu.
We parked and then decided to head down to the south end of the beach. There were a lot of big rock formations in the water that are great for snorkeling.
We brought our own snorkeling gear and decided to get in the water and snorkel around these rocks.
These are some aerial views of the beach.
You can see three beaches from this view. Playa Chiki Hundu to the left, Playa Manzaliña in the middle, and Playa Shon Mosa to the right.
We had a great time hanging out and snorkeling here. It is remote so make sure you bring your own food, water, and snorkeling gear. We would highly recommend visiting this beach on your next visit to Curacao.
The fee to enter is $6 US Dollars per vehicle.
Total Cost: $6
These are the checklist items I recommend:
- Bring a hat to keep the sun off of your face.
- Bring sunscreen
- Bring your own snorkeling gear
- Drive a 4-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle if it has rained or is going to rain.
- Bring your own food and water as you will be in a remote location
