Boca Catalina, Noord
(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Have a rest and a swim at Boca Catalina, a secluded bay with a white sand beach. Popular with local families and tourists alike, the beach enjoys a reputation for pleasant swimming and snorkeling. With a combination of clear and calm waters, you'll feel like you're in a swimming pool. A great variety of colorful fish live just offshore, including yellow boxfish, cowfish, triggers, and angelfish. Bring water shoes if planning to snorkel, as the bottom gets quite rocky in places. Work out when and for how long to visit Boca Catalina and other Noord attractions using our handy Noord trip generator.
