My favorite beach in Curacao. You can take a taxi for $5.00 each way from the cruise! It was beautiful. Great drinks, great food, great fun. The water had no seaweed and plenty of iguana's, crabs and fish. You can rent beach chairs for $3.00 and it cost $3.00 to use the beach- it was amazing!!!!!

We were on an ATV ride and beach stay excursion from our cruise, and this was the beach almost directly across the road from the ATV rentals. Our beach chairs were in front of the Cabana Bay/Kontiki Beach Resort. The water was clear and full of small fish, but there were some larger fish out by the rock walls. Water... More

Mambo beach is easy to get to. All the car rentals were sold out so we took a cab, about $30 USD each way. There were not huge crowds there so we probably did not need to get there so early (10am). You have to pay 7 USD per person to get on the beach and another 3 USD to... More

Although the taxi driver discouraged going to this beach, we had limited time after the dolphin swim. He said there are more beautiful, less touristy beaches, but they aren't close to the seaquarium. We walked from the seaquarium to the beach. It was about a 10-15 min walk. We paid around $15 for four chairs under a palm tree. It... More

It is about 20 minute drive over the big bridge from Willemstad. You could taxi but rental car probably cheaper. Beach had everything including no crowds. You could rent a chair on the beach or pay extra for the beach club. We elected the Beach Club. Service was great and food was good. Plenty of shopping and restaurants there. Shopping... More

I just can't see any reason why anyone would voluntarily choose this beach. First, you have to pay to get on it. No big deal, several of the beaches in Curacao are this way. But what do you get for that money? Absolutely nothing. You get beach access. Once you arrive at the beach, there is not a single speck... More

Beautiful beach, however the shells hurt your barefeet. There is shopping on site. It does cost to enter the beach and you need to pay for a beach chair. The views are fantastic!

The month we went must have been off season. It was very deserted. Some shops and restaurants were open. Ice cream shop available and huge stages on the beach. It looks really great there but I didn't see anything exciting happen. Maybe wrong time of year? We walked from the Sunscape so only 10 minute walk.

I loved the beach there. It is romantic, family friendly and has lots of boutiques and restaurants to choose from. The only downside is that most of the restaurants and shops close 7:00-8:00 pm. I will definitely visit again!
