If you have time and car and are looking for a beach with local quiet people then this is it. There is a security guard, nice local tent with good yet simple food, enough of palms for a shade and some old roof shelters so to stay in the shade. water is nice, snorkeling is possible yet not very special

The beach is disgusting - full of cig butts and garbage - but the snorkeling is very good. If you get there early, you can get a little hut (no charge) and rent lounge chairs if you want (small charge and you get half back if you return the chair when you are done). Bonus: there is a security guard... More

My family and I visited this beach as part of our dune buggy excursion (with Prins ATV rental). It was a very nice beach for snorkeling, water was clean and clear and there were plentiful coral reef and school of fish. We were able to see many different specie of fish!

I visited this beach for years. Nice free beach but the catering snack is rude and screwy. The beach chairs they rent have a 5 guilders (USD 3) deposit; you pay 10 guilders for a day rental when you take the chair (carry them yourself), and you get 5 guilders back if you return the chair at the rental. Sunday... More

We sum led into this quaint area. Has huts, chairs for rent, food and bathrooms. Great secluded cove with snorkeling. This is the choice of discerning locals to have family get togethers and not so crowded. Highly recommended.

Excellent (free) beach. Quiet, less tourists. Just a perfect spot for relaxing, bbq and swimming. Small catering, rentals of beds and some palapa's for some shade!

Small, preserved and primitive - a few hens and roasters share the area with visitors - this beach is a great place. Calm and crystal-clear waters, ideal for snorkeling. Many large, comfortable palapas, enough to accommodate a large group of people. Nearby Willemstad, it becomes busy pretty soon. So, come on in early if you wish a palapa. If you... More

This beach is a very nice and relaxed beach. You can get different types of food and drinks for a better price than the more rich and tourists beaches around Curacao. Snorkeling is also an option but you have to swim to the more deeper water. For me this is one of the nicest relaxing beaches of Curacao.

Of the three snorkeling sites we visited on Curacao (this one, Porto Mari, Lagun and Groote Knip), this ranked third. But if you follow the right wall out toward the point, there's an outcrop of hard and soft coral that's very impressive. In addition to the usual staghorn and brain coral, there are soft corals, large urchins, multicolored fans and... More

I spent so much time here snorkeling. the fish and coral reef were so amazing and beautiful. Most of the time when I go snorkeling I'm disappointed by the wildlife. Not so at this beach.
