Things to do - general

The village of Lagun is situated on the west coast of Curaçao at approximately 19 miles from Hato Airport and 22 miles from the capital Willemstad. It is a historic fishing village, characterized by peace and nature. You are here admidst the locals. Lagun is located on a small bay and on a daily basis you can see the fishermen go out and return with fresh fish. Of course you can buy this fish on the beach!

The west coast is a paradise for scuba divers and snorkelers. The water is relatively calm (just a little current) and there are many places where you have shore dives with easy entry and exit. If you do want to make a boat dive we recommend the marvelous corals of Mushroom Forest and a visit to the Blue Room.

On Lagun you will find a Diving Center/Beach Restaurant "Discoverdiving" where every Wednesday and Saturday evening a grill evening is organized. During this evening, there are different types of meat and fish (fresh from the fishermen of Lagun!) prepared on the grill. Except fish and meat there is a choice of various salads, cold and hot sauces, grilled corn, French fries, bread and garlic butter.

Each Thursday evening Discoverdiving presents live-music. Regularly changing bands provide a pleasant evening in which the music on such a level is that you also can talk with each other (unique on Curaçao!!!)

Sports & nature

Bandabou is an area with a few buildings and lots of nature. Except the different bays and the lovely beaches you can see the "kibrahachabushes" against the hills. These shrubs bloom only a few days per year; a beautiful sight.

Also the natural park Shete Boca is well worth a visit. To this natural park on the rough North Coast are many coves where the ocean water is splashing against the rocks and bashing meters high.

Who want to combine nature and sports can visit the Christoffel park. The Christoffel park offers the possibility of making different car-and hiking tours. You can also climb the mountain itself. At the top of the mountain (well over 300 meters) you have a splendid view over almost the entire island of Curaçao.

For the people who want to exercise a little bit easier: on Saturday morning there is the possibility to go aqua jogging in the bay of Lagun.

On Lagun you will find a Diving Center/Beach Restaurant "Discoverdiving". Daily from 9.00 am at Discoverdiving you can rent snorkeling and/or diving attributes. Diving courses and diving trips are provided at different locations.

For the sports enthusiasts who prefer keeping dry is it possible on Lagun accompanied horse riding or horse-riding lessons to follow.

Another nice touch for the start of the evening; Sunset at Lagun: unforgettable!!!

To complete the story; a few times a week the horses and their companions are cooling down in the Bay of Lagun just after sunset.
