Blue room Curacao

At Playa Santa Cruz you can find the Blueroom, this is a cave under the water that glows blue in the sunlight. This cave is also called Mushroom Forest.

When you arrive at the water you have to swim under water for about 3 meters. It is best to do this with snorkels and flippers as otherwise you risk coming up earlier, where you can hit your head.

The blue light in the Blue Room is caused by the sunlight shining in the clear, blue water.

On foot: If you walk for about 25 minutes at the cabin of Captain Goodlife, you will come to this cave.
With the water taxi: You can also book a snorkeling trip at Captain Goodlife where you take you to this cave.
