Sustainable Tourism in Action - Director’s Bay, Curaçao’s February Dive Site of the Month

As the local story goes, it is said that the late Queen Juliana, who was invited to this beach, was so afraid of fish that the Royal Dutch Shell Group caged in a section of the bay for her, to increase her enjoyment and ultimately to ease her mind so that she could relax.

It boasts pristine beaches, a very Insta-worthy capital (Willemstad), and year-round sunshine. In fact, temperatures don’t tend to fluctuate much throughout the seasons. While January is Curaçao’s coolest month, its average temperature during this...
