Lions Dive & Beach Resort is on a beautiful soft sand beach, dotted with palm trees, overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The resort has a, well deserved, excellent reputation. Starting life as a divers' hotel, Lions Dive has improved and expanded into a very special resort which we can recommend to all visitors to Curacao. It has a wide choice of good quality accommodation with a variety of services and activities for all guests to enjoy. The original buildings of Lions Dive are a rustic Dutch Caribbean style, surrounded by a tropical garden. The recently built suites and apartments are modern and stylish. The private beach adjoins the famous SeaQuarium/ Mambo Beach, the longest beach on Curacao. The SeaQuarium itself is two hundred metres away. This coast is the home of the Curaçao Underwater Park, a protected area called 'Bapor Kibra', or 'Broken Boat', after the steamer Oranje Nassau, which sank there in 1906.Mambo Beach, next door, is a favourite night spot with two very good restaurants, a couple of bars and occasional live music. The nightlife is typically Caribbean, laid back and easy going. Lions Dive has its own restaurants and bars, so you have a good choice, on your doorstep. Lions Dive is only 3 miles from historic Willemstad, the capital of Curacao, a charming city with a fascinating heritage and enjoyable nightlife. Lions Dive has a free shuttle to Willemstad. Lions Dive is proud of its environmentally friendly procedures and has won a Green Globe Award for its conservation efforts.

This excellent resort at the heart of the area designated as the Curacao Marine Park, central to the island, close to many excellent dives sites and easy access to all the island's dive sites.
Curacao is famous for its excellent reef - some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world - and the fantastic freedom of shore diving - dive when you like and pretty much where you like. Snorkellers will enjoy the shore diving sites as much as the divers. Air for shore diving is "unlimited" – as much air as you want. There are over 38 shore diving sites on the calm south west coast, ideal for snorkellers, as well as divers, as the reef is very close to shore. See the diving and snorkelling pages - links on the banner above - for more information about the fantastic diving and snorkelling on Curacao. To make the most of this freedom – to dive, snorkel and explore the island - we recommend visitors to Curacao hire a vehicle. We can arrange vehicle hire at a lower rate than you would pay on island. We work closely with the PADI 5 star dive centre on the beach. It is a well organised dive operation offering the full range of PADI courses plus equipment to hire or buy. Guided dives and boat dives are available. The custom built dive boats are comfortable and well equipped for the very short ride to the sites. Boats take very small groups, usually 6 - 8 divers and snorkellers. At most sites there will be just you and few (new) friends - very relaxed and comfortable. However, boats do get booked up very easily.
Booking your diving, vehicle hire or other services with us, will save you money and is part of an ATOL protected holiday itinerary.
Any service you book with us will be ready and waiting for you on island - avoiding any possible disappointment.
