Virtual Postcards From One of the Caribbean's Favourite Diving Destinations

postcards from curacao episode 1 2 1000

The island of Curaçao in the southern Caribbean is regularly voted as one of the best scuba diving destinations in the world, placing fifth overall in DIVE's 2019 Travel Awards. During the difficult days of the coronavirus lockdown, Nature Pics Films and Dive Curaçao teamed up to produce a series of virtual postcards of the island and its diving to remind previous visitors of happier days and let anybody who hasn't been there before know what they're missing for making post-lockdown holiday plans.

Here in Episode 1, we explore the Curaçao capital of Willemstad and in Episode 2, one of the island's best known and best-loved diving and snorkelling locations, Caracasbaai.

Episode 1 - Willemstad


Episode 2 - Caracasbaai

Caracasbaai is a designated nature preserve, steeped in history and famous for its excellent diving and snorkelling. The famous Tugboat, sunk in just 5m of waters and perfect for entry-level divers with its gently sloping reef, is located just around the corner from the beautiful coral walls of Director's Bay. Both are within easy reach of Fort Beekenburg, built in 1703 and which has defended the island from both pirates and a number of invasions.
