Gorgeous beach with plenty of chairs and tables for a barbecue or a picnic! Easy parking. Great place to relax. You can even get a massage!

Lots of amenities - beverages, showers, hammocks, etc.... be sure to keep your ticket for paying for a chair rental! They will find you - even after you've been there for awhile. Great water - probably good snorkeling, but we didn't do it at this beach. The beach is HUGE - and GORGEOUS!! Definitely worth the long bumpy road and... More

This beach will take your breath away! It is great to bask in the sun, search for shells or snorkel and see the many sea life like flounder, eels, crabs and many coral and fish!

We thought the snorkeling here was better than Porto Marie but not as good as the tugboat area. The rock cliffs on either side of the beach had some coral around it and therefore a few more fish as well. Get there early and grab a little shade while it's available as there aren't as many umbrellas as Porto Marie.

This beach is not so crowded as Porto Marie. No snorkelling. The food is fast food but that's oké. Beautiful!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We had high expectations based on the reviews here but unfortunately were disappointed. The reason people probably like this beach is because it's long and wide, unlike other beaches in Curacao. You had to pay $6 per car to get in and $3 for a sunbed. The prices were reasonable considering there was a cafe and a toilet. The shower... More

The is a very nice beach. I strongly recommend to visit during the week. It is very crowded on weekends. You do pay to get it, maybe 10 dollars. Chair rental is 3 dollars. There is plenty of shaded areas if you get there early. There is good snorkeling to the left of the beach. I swam all the way... More

Yes, you pay to get into Cas Abao but it is worth it. There is food for purchase and beer. The parking is relatively safe.It is a wide open area of water for sure but safe. We saw the usual fish inhabitants and fair numbers of them. Then oh my gosh a southern sting ray swam through! That was too... More

The beach was good and we enjoyed our day here. The beach chairs were extremely hard though and I couldn't relax. The beach is good for youngsters as it's shelving and safe. The showers - only one working so the ticket was pointless as the queue for the only shower was long. Had to wait over 45 minutes to be... More

It is a beautiful sandy beach, but it had more people than any other of the beaches we visited. We did not pay to get in; chairs are $3 to rent. The water was very clear. They start ringing a bell near 6 PM, when the beach is about to close. Too bad, because sunset would be only one hour... More
