Curacao is the perfect destination for your next family vacation. The sun is always shining, and the sea breeze makes the island very pleasant in temperature. Next, to that, the island has a great variety of things to do for the whole family. With a wide selection of beaches, beautiful nature parks, fun attractions, and family-friendly accommodations, Curacao has the world to offer. Below you will find some recommendations and tips.
Enjoy the many secluded beaches in small bays
The good thing about Curacao is that there are a lot of small beaches in secluded bays. This makes it easier to keep an eye on your children while enjoying a relaxing beach day. Some beaches we recommend and are close to the resort:
Of course Coral Estate also has its own beach for you to enjoy whilst staying in one of our accommodations.
Explore the underwater world with Coral Divers
Curacao is as beautiful above and underwater. Explore the Caribbean Sea and all its beauty while snorkeling or even scuba diving. At Coral Divers on Coral Estate, you can rent kids and adult full-face masks for an easy and comfortable snorkeling experience. Want to go diving? The on-site dive shop offers special bubble maker dive classes for kids who want to try diving (8 years and up).

Curacao Children’s museum
Children’s Museum Curacao is a place where children learn through the power of play. At the Children’s Museum Curacao you can find a rich environment that stimulates children’s natural curiosity and creativity. In contrast with traditional museums that typically have a hands-off policy, Children’s Museum Curacao features interactive exhibit zones that are designed especially for children and their developmental needs.
Enter the world of learning through play, discovery and hands-on exploration for young children (ages 1-8 years old) and their families. The entrance fee is Nafl 9 (USD 5) for both kids and adults.
