We thought this beach was the best on the island. Very pretty. Clear water and white sand. You do have to pay 10 to get in, which I think was like 5 USD. It is worth it. Chairs are 3 USD to rent. There are some small rocks in the sand walking into ocean so water shoes would be helpful... More

Very nice beach but you do have to pay to enter and it closes around 6pm. We enjoyed the beach until we got “stung” by very small (unseeable) creatures or something. It wasn’t a lasting or even a strong sting, it was more unnerving that something in the water was stinging you.

As some other reviewers noted, there was a little trash, but it wasn't bad. Humans are disrespectful all over the world. Otherwise, the sand was beautiful, the water was beautiful, the rock formations were beautiful, the beach wasn't too crowded, the chairs and food were not over-priced, etc. In fact, my cheeseburger was much better than I expected (much better...

A nice beach that has it all. Snorkeling. White sandy beach. Beautiful blue waters. Restauarant. Good food and nice drinks. You have to pay for the beach chairs, but then you get a ticket for a free shower. But why o why do smokers use this beautiful white sandy beach as an ashtray? That spoils a lot.

As a gated beach with an entrance fee, this is a safe beach to spend a day snorkeling. The beach is beautiful... white sand and Caribbean sea! As a full service beach, it has access to restrooms, showers, food, massage, plapas and chairs for rent. The snorkeling offered the most diverse sea life we'd seen, including squid and a ray!

It is a hard place to find because it isn't even on the map but it is definitely the best beach on the island. There were almost no tourists when we went, just locals, and it was absolutely beautiful.

We stopped here on our last day in Curaçao hoping to get some snorkeling in, but was disappointed in the snorkeling. Didn't see much out in water. Water edge is rough on feet getting in, lots of Coral. Park charges on admission to get in and charge for chairs. The bar/restaurant was good. We had crab salad sandwich and burger.... More

This is the same as Cas Abao Beach (which is rated #13). I didn't think I was a beach person, but after this trip here, I am now in love with swimming and snorkelling - although I do not venture past toe-touching depth, I had the most amazing snorkelling experience. There were fish 20cm big within 1 metre of the... More

We were looking for a beach with lots of blue water and we found it at Playa Casa Abou. Great facilities, lots of beach area, chairs for rent. Long drive from the road to the beach, feels like four wheeling but worth the drive.

This is the beach that you want to settle into a beach chair under some shade with a cooler of beers and spend an entire day being idle. It's really comfortable and got the facilities including bar/restaurant. Great vibe and one of the best beaches in Curacao!
