Took a cab up to La Playa Porto Mari - $20/per person round trip plus $3 per person for the beach access. Quiet place, great little beach. Bar there and a gift shop. Driver came back for us at sunset. Takes about a half hour each way, but fun to see flamingos on the way, and some of the country.
Later that night we walked around Willemstaad and had dinner on our own. Great time!
