Just a 10-minute drive from Grote Knip is the Playa Grandi, famous for the turtles that live in the area.
Undoubtedly, one of the best things to do in Curacao is to swim with the turtles here. You are almost guaranteed to see them as they know there’s food (fishermen clean up their catch on the beach and toss the remains back into the sea). The turtles are used to human beings and aren’t afraid to get close! One of them swam right into me but I dodged it just in time. Price: 10 ANG (US$11) for rental of bench.
