Very trendy beach area. If you like that type of crowd then come here. The beach is nice but the water is a bit wavy. Views were good. Staff was very friendly. Nice place to visit. Like most Curacao beaches you pay for the entrance and for the lounge chair. So, be prepared.

I've been to this beach many times. It's easy to get to, has great water and views, and several restaurants at different levels. Nice.

There is a fee to enter this beach and to use their loungers 6Naf & 10 Naf. Plenty of bar & food options. Showers on the beach too. Mostly rocks surround it and two "sandy" ways to get in the water though one of those catches you out by being sandy at the start then a line if rocks just... More

We booked a cabana everytime we went here to relax. A canana is 40 guilders and include a bottle of water. You can also rent a standalone bed for 6 guilders, but enjoy it more when we are not lying next directly to a lot of other people. The food here is good and when we were here, it wasn't... More

We were 2 couples. Found a great place under palm trees with bit shadow. If tou're lucky you can find some special chairs at 15Fl each, with sunshades The beach bar is good, although the smoke from the steakes was pretty disturbing Nice and friendly iguana on the rocks and many crabs on the rocks Nice experience

This is a nice place to go if you like to be with other people. It was very popular. There were lots of lounge chairs. There is an entrance fee. There are public restrooms, a shower (which is very hard to use) and two restaurants and a couple of gift shops. I had read the snorkeling was good here, but... More

A very popular beach at the end of Caracasbaii (at least I think this is the beach!). Beautiful waters and view like many of the south facing beaches but a bit more rocky.

This beach has several bars and restaurants, chairs and gazebos to rent. It is a perfect place to stay all day, relaxing. Sometimes it can be very crowded, so I would recommend to arrive early and rent a comfortable gazebo fo all day (U$25) and have no worries...

This area is manmade and not really a "beach", but more like an access to the bay. It was crowded and the beach chairs were on top of each other. There are many shops and restaurants to choose from. There is live entertainment here at night. We chose not to eat here and went to the Boathouse instead which is... More

This beach is located in the eastern end of the island. There is a gate guard where you pay to park and enter the beach. We entered by Zanzibar restaurant. The bay has a break wall on either side of the bay reducing the currents entering the site. Much of the beach is elevated above water level with a steel... More
