Turtles and Squid and Octopus. Oh my!

Octopus Squid and Turtle at Playa Piskadó

He travels the world with his wife, Leslie, exploring nearby shore dives and remote atolls from liveaboards. Together, they document their adventures at TropicLens.com.

It didn’t take long for Playa Piskadó to make the top of our favorite Curaçao dive site list. We have yet to go there and not see several turtles. On our last dive, we also saw a pod of squid (although they weren’t as friendly as Leslie would have liked) and a very chill octopus. The reef itself is very nice, going down to 100+ feet with an 8-foot statue of Neptune watching over his realm.

The view from the overlooking cliffs puts the full local fishing fleet on display and the beach area has been built up a bit to support water sport activities and even a couple of places to eat. Playa Piskadó is worth a drive to the west side. Take two tanks and make a day of it!
