Paradise on curacao

Arrive early to make sure you get to park the car closeby. Very nice beach with the clearest blue water ever seen. Option to use the toilets (paid) and rent beachbeds.

We drove all the way to Kenepa Beach (Grote Knip) from Hilton. Stayed for maybe 30 minutes and back tracked to Playa Cas Abou. This beach is not worth the drive as it is not that great and there is quite a bit of garbage on the beach. Also, it is not a full service beach. Seems like it was... More

This gentle curve of beach has everything to please the beach goer, be it just to lie and laze, or to play or swim. Perfect for families, safe for children, all in all a great way to spend an afternoon.

One of the most beautiful beaches on curacao. Not very close to the city, but free of charge and mostly not very crowded.

We've heard so much about this beach we didn't want to go to Curacao without making a stop at Kenepa Beach. It was beautiful. The beach was very crowded and we didn't stay long, but did see quite a bit of liter. The clear water, white sand, and cliffs were amazing. The liter and crowds were a disappointment and we... More

there is too much garbage lying around on those Beaches. Considering they are mentioned one of the top beaches in Curacao they were quite dissappointing

Best part of this beach was the scenery. The water was clear, the sand was warm, and it was surrounded by beautiful cliffs. The worst part about this beach was that the showers and bathrooms were out of order.

Spent 2 days here. Amazingly beautiful beach. If you snorkel you may want to consider Lagun Beach. . .more fish, but not as pretty.

The beach itself is amazing. I didn't have the courage to buy food there, so I don't know how it is. I brought my own beer, water, chips and bananas. At lunch time the beach can get crowded, so if you want shade you need to get here early.
