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!

Another stretch of Turquoise warm water. A little less visited by tourists. Beach is pretty clean. Never went in the water here. Rent beach chairs for NAF 5. If you go beach hunting on Curacao, you need to visit this one as well.

Free public beach with easy snorkeling. Go during the week as it is crowded with locals on weekends. Ample shade for those who need it. Bar/restaurant open 10-1800 daily. Lounge chair rental $3.50 US each.
