This is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Curaçao. The overlook from the parking lot is worth the trip alone. Also do not skip the small food vendor selling empanadas near the entrance, they are inexpensive and delicious. Personally, I preferred the snorkeling on Klein Knip, it's smaller and less crowded sister beach. If you can,... More

Although it was extremely out of the resort's way, it was worth the 40mn drive to witness one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in my life. Must visit, and it is free!

I booked a shore excursion on shore excursioneer website. Ended up with an amazing Curacao tour with 4 people and our wonderful guide Laika. She was informative and very friendly. I fell in love with the island. She took up to the Boca Pistol, the Flamingos, and to Kenepa beach. Brought our own snorkel gear and had a blast in... More

We had rented a car for the day and drove around the one half of the island. We stopped at Kenepa Beach. It was a short visit and did not have time to relax and enjoy a swim. I hope to go back when we visit again in Feb 2016. water was very warm, soft white sand was not overly... More

Grand Kenepa, or Gran Knip, has the most turquoise waters I have ever seen. As soon as you park your car - yes, cars are a must not only in Knip but in all of Curacao - you see the clear turquoise waters. As you move towards the rocks and see the shore, there are so many shades of blue... More

If you're traveling here by car, this beach is also referred to as Gran Knip. There is a much smaller version of Knip beach close by that is very private and much more of a "locals" spot. Kenapa had absolutely beautiful water and looks just like the picture above. There were areas to get out of the sun. Take something... More

I would give this one the best and most quiet beach among the ABC islands. This is great if you're looking to relax on the low key vibe. Great for swimming.
