This reef is as close to virginal as can be found nowadays. One of the Caribbean’s finest; it rivals the best of Belize, and has ensured Curaçao’s immense popularity with diving enthusiasts. Its remote location over rough seas, off a completely undeveloped area of the island and inaccessible by land, has kept these sites well out of reach and therefore undisturbed and spectacular. Smokey, also called Punt’i Sanchi, is to the southeast of Newport on a cape with a wide shallow terrace. This is a boat dive.
