As with European beaches this can be topless so don't be surprised. There are great facilities and restaurant on site. It is not free but... More

This is definitely in the Top five beaches on Curacao - the quality of coral and sea life is amazing.. Nice facilities and friendly staff.

This is a really good beach, and worth of 3$ entrance fee. If you like to sun bathe and swim on sand beach this is ideal for that. There is a restaurant bar where you can get food and drinks, free toilets and showers. If you are into snorkeling, like I'm, there is also something to see for you. There... More

This beach has great facilities. It has tons of umbrellas and chairs for lounging on the sand. The restaurant and bar were great. We spent hours there. There is a dive shop. The white sand and blue waters just made for a relaxing day that I did not want to end. When driving to the beach and passing the scorched... More

This is one of the best beaches on Curacao. Nice deck chairs, clear blue waters and good facilities on the site. If you're going to have lunch, try the chicken sate , simply great.

We visited 4 different beaches on our trip and this was by far my favorite. Beautiful blue water, lots of chairs and a great bar. Something about this beach just had the best vibe. We didnt get the same feeling at the other more popular beaches we visited. We did have to pay a small price for our lounge chairs,... More

So when we checked into our hotel the concierge said that if we visited only two beaches it should be Cas Abao and Porto Marie. Both of these beaches to me seemed very similar. You pay to enter both and pay an additional fee for a beach chair. Similarly, both beaches have an onsite restaurant, soft white sand, and beautiful... More

Love the white sand, clear water and smaller beach area. Water was nice and I especially loved the floating dock. My family and I went to 5 beaches on our trip and I definitely recommend visiting this beach.

It was a nice beach with plenty of lounge chairs for rent. There's a cute bar area with light food options. When we were there, there was a wedding near the pier. Breathtaking views, the water is gorgeous...2nd best place to get married in Curacao. Avila Hotel has my vote for #1!
