Playa Kalki (Alice in Wonderland)
Playa Kalki, also known as Alice in Wonderand, is one of the most beautiful dive sites on Curaçao. 'Kalki' means limestone in Papiamento and refers to the limestone in the cliffs. You will often meet other divers on this beach because Playa Kalki is one of the top 10 dive sites on the island.
It takes about 3 minutes to reach the coral wall, which has a drop of 18 meters. Underwater visibility is about 30 meters deep. You will encounter many large coral formations and colorful fish here. You also have the chance to see some larger fish, rays, turtles, a shark or even dolphins because it is right next to the rough north side of the island.
This dive spot is super popular and is often combined with a visit to the Blue Room. Both places are unique locations. You get lost in the coral formations that have grown into mushrooms, hence the name Mushroom Forest. You will regularly find schools of fish and there is a chance of spotting a nurse shark here.
The Blue Room is also called Boka Flute by the locals. The air pushed out of the cave by the wave action makes a whistling sound.
The Valley is a vast double reef where the left side is completely different from the right side. Unique and diverse! Because of this, people usually dive twice because both places are worthwhile. Because the water is so clear you can admire passing turtles and stingrays in this spectacular reef. Many different colorful coral fish and moray eels swim here between the exuberant coral and sometimes you even spot small nurse sharks.
This Dutch shipwreck is one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean. It is over 30 meters deep where many reef fish, barracuda’s and groupers can be seen. In almost 40 years the wreck has become completely overgrown with different types of coral, anemones and sponges. From Piscadera it is about a 10 minute swim.
The tugboat Tugboat sank 30 years ago on the southeast side of Caracas Bay. This is also a nice place for snorkelers because the boat is only five meters deep. Moray eels, trumpet fish, angel fish and tube coral can be found at the boat. Three minutes from Tugboat there is a steep wall of about 30 meters deep where you can see schools of fish swimming. You can also take a look under the jetty.
