LA Travel magazine visits Curacao

CURSB_activities-640x360WILLEMSTAD – Curacao recently enjoyed a visit from reporters of the Los Angeles Travel Magazine, who came to Curacao to explore the rich culture the island has to offer.

The group stayed at the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort, which according to them, has a highly sought after location with picturesque views at every turn. LA Magazine describes this resort as the place to be if you are going to Curacao for private beaches and relaxation.

The reporters had the opportunity to visit Curacao’s most popular beach called Groot Knip at the south western side of the island. “Step onto the warm, coral-clad sands of Groot Knip, and it all hits, you have just entered Paradise. The crystal-clear blue waters and warm sea air will inspire you to explore the island’s captivating shores.

Beloved by the locals and tourists alike, Groot Knip on Curacao’s west side is an amazing and special beach on the island. Whether you want to snorkel, sunbathe or dive off a cliff, this beach has it all. This long stretch of powdery white sand is met by soft waves of bright turquoise blue water. If you’re feeling brave, take a plunge into the Caribbean Sea off one of the nearby cliffs.

Don’t forget your snorkeling gear, as there is some great underwater exploring to do. This is a favorite among the islanders so make sure to get here early and claim your spot on Knip Bay.  Plan for an early arrival time and you might just get lucky enough to have the entire beach to yourself,” according to LA Magazine.

Part of the exploration is the food of course. These reporters had quite the experience with the local cuisine. They reported; “When touring the west side of the island your food options are limited.  Jaanchie’s is a spot you don’t want to miss for some authentic Caribbean food and hospitality.  The restaurant has been around for over 60 years serving local fare, seafood dishes and iguana.  Yes, you heard right they serve iguana. Make sure to try the iguana soup which is popular for its aphrodisiac benefits.

Over the years the restaurant has become something of a road marker on Curacao’s beaten tourist path. Upon arrival you’ll be greeted by the owner, Jaanchie who recites the menu to each and every table.  His personality and character is what keeps locals and tourists coming back for more.”

These are satisfied travelers. What are you waiting for to come visit Curacao?
