Return (Explored)

Playa Pretu (translation to English would be Black Beach) is a beach on the southern shore of Curacao. Not only the black sand makes this beach noteworthy but also the beautiful shallow water coral reef that is just a couple of feet offshore.


After the worst rain season I can ever remember on this island the roads leading there are completely destroyed. Last Sunday some friends and I went off-road to this and some more places on the same (private) property. For the sunset we decided to stop at this beach, unfold some chairs, fire up a barbecue and enjoy the colors nature put on display.
