Centrally located yet beachfront

What’s great about this beach bar on Curacao is its location. It is downtown, in the lively Pietermaai District, yet oceanside making this beach bar exceptionally accessible. Also because this beach bar is centrally located and has a convenience and spacious parking. In short, a great spot to hangout after work, before grabbing dinner (at home, elsewhere or at Avila) or when just looking for a place to relax without needing a long drive.

Truly authentic and unique

Truly authentic and unique

Schooner Bar & Restaurant is located at the oldest operational hotel on Curacao, the Avila Beach Hotel. It is a hotel filled with history and truly has an authentic soul. Schooner Bar & Restaurant is located right in the heart of the hotel and open since 1959 making it the oldest operational beach bar on Curacao. The name of this beach bar is parallel to its unique shape; it is the Schooner of a sailing ship. When having a drink at this Curacao beach bar, you’re actually having a drink at a wooden boat that’s halfway buried in the white sands of Avila’s beach.

The most beautiful sunset on Curacao

This beach bar has an amazing view to the sunset. That is why there is also a Sunset Happy Hour every Friday from 5.00 – 7.00 PM. Enjoy the stunning ocean view and come by to see the sun go down, somewhere between 6.00 – 7.00 PM. Indulge that beautiful lit sky, cozy string lights, romantic torches and ambient lighting together with tasty drinks and delicious food.

Avila’s Beach Vibes

Avila’s Beach Vibes

One of the best recurring weekly events on Curacao is Avila’s Beach Vibes. This Wednesday evening is all about practicing the laidback Caribbean lifestyle. Imagine you with a Gin & Tonic in your hand (Happy Hour from 5.30 – 6.30 PM) listening to unplugged live music (from 6.30 – 8.30 PM), right on the beach. Life can’t get any better, right? Pick a seat at the boat shaped bar, the scenic seaside terrace or at the beach. If you can’t relax here, then something is seriously wrong.
