This beach would be a lot better if there wasn't so much litter everywhere which is truly a shame. The snorkeling is not that great as there is no coral so between the litter and the mediocre snorkeling I wouldn't return here with so many other great spots to choose from.

Spent the day there rented lounge chairs and claimed a palapa since we were there by 9:30. Good parking lot and a small snack bar with a friendly lady. You rent the chair for 10 NAF and get 5 back when you return it. Yes, you pick it up and place it on the stack. No problem. Beer and limited... More

Our idea was to have some breakfast, do some snorkeling and then go to another snorkeling site. Well the plans changed. When we arrived there was hardly anybody on the beach except 30 teenage children who left within the hour. We rented chairs, sat under a palapa (chickee hut,) befriended the guy who runs the snack bar who brought us... More

One of the nicest beaches we found on the island. Beach-chairs can be rented at the kiosk (10 NAF, 5 NAF will be returned if the chair is being returned) and there was no fee for car parking. Small fees for shower and toilet. A lot of trees for those looking for shadow, snorkeling was nice but nothing breathtaking. Mostly... More

Nice beach, easy access to the water, even a little "take out" to get some drinks, food and chairs. But as everywhere, overall cleanness not the best. I can't understand those people. There could be done so much more but, no. Maybe this is the Caribbean spirit?

the beach is nice and easy to access as the parking lot is very big. There are some local snacks sold for quite cheap prices. The only minor thing is that the sea here is quite rocky so one has to be a little bit careful when walking from the beach into the sea.

Although not as great as Kenepa Beach, this was probably my second favorite place to snorkel on Curacao. I would definitely go here rather than the nearby Cas Abou, which you have to pay to get into. Loved seeing all the cats and roosters hanging out!
