What comes to mind when you think of the full moon?
Yoga, late night adventures, eclipses, Thailand… perhaps it’s different for everyone.
On the Caribbean island of Curaçao though, the full moon means something very important to most everyone.
Full moon’s on Curaçao are cause for the most epic monthly parties in the Caribbean.
Curaçao may not be the only place on the globe that offers full moon parties, we’re looking at you Thailand, but without a doubt Curaçao’s are completely unforgettable.
You may be wondering what a full moon party is, and we’re about to give you all the deets:
An enormous, epic, and exciting party on the beach under the full moon. Literally more than 3,000 people gather each month to welcome the full moon, celebrate life, and have an incredible night (that you may or may not remember, depending on your personal choices).
Starting around 10 PM party-goers begin to arrive, and from that point forward – partake in dancing, laughing and drinking. Fireworks, special acts and international DJ’s can all be expected at the Full Moon Party, but don’t expect anything specific because the party is always changing and always full of surprises.
The one and only Kokomo Beach is located at Vaersenbaai on Curaçao. It’s a lovely natural bay on the road towards Bullenbaai. Featuring a surfers look with a classy touch, Kokomo opened in 2011 and shortly thereafter became famous for its incredible beach parties. Not only fun in the evenings, Kokomo beach is also an excellent place to relax during the day. Delicious food, yummy cocktails and crystal clear water make it a top choice for a lazy beach day. For the adventure seekers, Kokomo also features a professional dive center.
Typically speaking there is a full moon party every single month! So plenty of opportunities to partake, just make sure you plan to be in Curaçao during a full moon and you won’t have to miss out. For more details regarding the specific dates and times, visit here.
