Director´s Bay


Unnamed Road, Curaçao

Good for:

dive, snorkel, Beach, Shore Diving

Director’s Bay used to be the private beach of the directors of Shell, the Dutch Royal family used this beach at the same time. After the departure of Shell in 1985, the beach became public.

As the local story goes, it is said that the late Queen Juliana, who was invited to this beach, was so afraid of sharks that the Royal Dutch Shell Group build a “caged” in a section of the bay for her (we still haven´t seen any sharks around the area…)

Dive here left along the vertical wall, which extends to from a depth of 10 to about 40 meters. You’ll see beautiful corals and large schools of fish, in all shapes and sizes.

From here you can also reach the dive site ‘Tugboat‘. Make sure you will be picked up there as your air supply won’t be enough to make it back. Director’s Bay is also a nice snorkeling beach.
