Consistently named in the top 10 Curacao dive sites, Alice in Wonderland, also known as Playa Kalki, is a near-perfect dive spot for divers new and old.

Just off of a beautiful west end beach is the house reef of Kura Hulanda. Consistently named in the top 10 Curacao dive sites, Alice in Wonderland, also known as Playa Kalki, is a near-perfect dive spot for divers new and old. If you’re interested in a foray into night diving, this is also a fantastic spot to practice your skills.

From Go West Diving at Kura Hulanda Lodge, you can leap from the dock and follow a large rope leading you to the reef about 30 feet out. Once there, you can choose to swim left or right as there is often no current to speak of. The reef starts at around 30 feet and continues well past 100 feet with visibility often exceeding 100 feet.

Varied parrotfish, soldier fish, tangs, rays, and more will accompany you as you glide along the aptly named Wonderland. Halfway through your dive, turn around and swim back the way you came. The large rope marking the path back to the dock makes it difficult to get lost. If you venture out for a night dive, you’ll likely find lobsters and, if you’re lucky, an octopus or two.
