Playa Lagun: One of the Prettiest Places to Dive on Curacao

Playa Lagun is another one of those great places to dive on Curacao. A lot of people don’t go there because you have to swim way.. out there.. before you go down, or you’ll use up half your air over white chrystaline sands.

So– 9:30 AM we make up our gear at Patrick’s Wederfoort Dive shop and hop in the pickup for a 20 minutes dive up towards the NW end of the Island.  Throw on our gear and walk down through the sunbathers, already beginning to stake out places on this small secluded beach.

Swim out! Glad the water is cool! Here we are offshore 300+ yards looking back.

Jill looks at me, we all look at the cliffs with houses and high-end resorts, Patrick gives an OK and down we go….. 35 ft. down is a sloping plateau loaded with tube spongers, corky fingers, and pillars of coral.

A glass eye snapper just a bit deep to show off his vrightred coloring, brain rose and starlet corals,  a pale phase of a stoplight parrot with a blue tail, a blue male phase of a sergent major,  flowing fungus coral, blue tube sponges, a herd of grunts above some goat fish, a blue wrasse, and finally the Giant Vase Sponge big enough to swallow a person.

Back at the beach an hour later, we stop for a coffee while we get out top-time, pick up more tanks at Patrick’s dive concession at Lagun Resort, look down off the cliffs from above where we have been diving and head for the next dive.  Enjoy!
