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.
|In the evening|
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!!!)
