Great beach, beautiful water, good diving with a local dive shop onsite as well as a great restaurant and bar. All of the places we visited in Curacao, this was our favorite (and most of the locals we asked said the same thing). Highly recommended!

We have been there 3 times during our vacation and would come back again. They have a lovely beach and all amenities you desire for a day at the beach. The beach restaurant had really decent prices and food quality.

Beautiful beach, I can say probably the most breathtaking place I have ever been. Plenty of beach chairs and shade for everyone that wants it. Snorkeling is good and the water is calm. Drinks are good and reasonably priced. Clean bathrooms. Not much for kids to do. Is a bit rocky but managable without water shoes. Rented a car to... More

Had full facilities,decent variety and number of fish to see! The beach is a bit rocky as you enter the water and an early arrival will ensure you get a shaded location.

The location has very clear water. But, I asked the bartender about the value of a $1 coin when I was buying a beer, and he told me it equated to about a penny US. I'm glad that I did not leave him a bunch of them as a tip!
