They charged approx $11 per person for a beach chair. food at local bar was fine. (I think $15 for burger and fries). Snorkeling was good- stay until end of day! Sunset was beautiful and a turtle came right onto the beach and swam next to the dock.

We stopped in for breakfast. It was really quiet, hardly anyone was there. The portions were generous and the service was good. It is a pretty large place and would probably be a nice place to go for drinks. It is right on the beach and there are beach chairs. There were also some nice shaded sofa sitting areas.

Travelling here was not great as the roads are terrible . It is pay parking and there are facilities such as washrooms and restaurant. There are chairs for rent and there is a natural shade from the many trees around so that was great. Good snorkelling point. Nice for an afternoon and move on from there!. No locals. All Dutch...

We had spent the day at the beach at Playa Porto Mari and decided to eat a late lunch/early dinner here, as restaurants on this end of the island are few and far between. The restaurant here did not disappoint. Still in our beachwear, we were seated under the canopy and had a beautiful view of the Caribbean. They had... More

We had 2 cheese burgers that came with fries, 2 crab salad sandwiches that didn't, 3 beers, 2 sodas and calamari. It was $71 before tip. Service was actually pretty good. Food was fine for a beach bar. People watching was fun. It was one of the better plates of calamari we've had on the island. A bit greasy but... More

I was very pleased with this sandy beach and crystal clear water. The snorkeling was pretty good on the left side and in the center with the man made reefs to protect the fish. There was a great scuba facility, bathrooms and showers. The restaurant was OK, super slow service and non appreciative wait staff (seriously save your money and... More

We dive the Porto Marie reef every year and enjoy the sandy beach, rental chairs $5 each, friendly helpful dive shop, but now bring our own lunch and sodas and avoid the restaurant bar. Very clean shower and changing areas, lockers are available but since you have to deal with the bar to get one we now avoid that too.... More

The beach has great white sand but it is a pay t o play beach. It took forever to get to it. We must have driven down this road for 10 minutes before getting to what looked like a parking lot in dirt/rock. When we made it to the beach there was a sign to pay 10 guilders per person... More
