One of the best I've ever been.. If you are visiting Curacao, don't miss it.. Carry your spare cloths... Cloths comes very expensive in the shops near by.. The place is a bit expensive, but worth every penny you spend..

Though the sand beach is small and filled with lounges and hammocks, it is gorgeous. A jetty runs the length of the beach enclosing the ocean swimming area with a diving platform and access to climb on the jetty. There's also a pool. Though I was not charged, others were asked to pay for lounge sitting. First few feet of... More

Came here as part of a tour in which our entrance fee was included. We simply paid for the use of a beach bed which was only $9 for the day. Water was very clear it was just a tad cold, but that wasn't a problem. Beach does get crowed but was still enjoyable. There were restrooms, bars, restaurant and... More

We went here as part of a guided island tour. We thought the fee was paid as part of the tour, but no, so we had to pay to use this unpleasant beach. We stayed for less than an hour. The beach was crowded, the prices were high, the water was not very clear, the snorkelling was poor and the... More

beach is very vivid, if you dont look for serenity, it is nice place to relax there. It is surrounded by beach boutiques, nice restaurants and bars. Very suitable for swimming, what we liked very much is moored pontoon and natural stone plateau where you can sunbathe.

It was our second cruise to Curacao. On the first cruise we walked around town and enjoyed the sights and shopping around the cruiseport so this time we wanted to visit a beach that was close to the cruiseport. We walked across the bridge to downtown and then caught a local bus (asked a few locals where the bus depot... More
