This beach is absolutely beautiful. From the turquoise water to the white sand beach. It's a steep walk down concrete steps to the beach but worth the trip. There is limited shade so bring an umbrella and chairs if you can

This beach looks like a scene from a movie. It was fun for swimming but not great for snorkelling. It was sad as there was lots of garbage on the ocean floor.

This beach is me favorite beach. The water is crystal clear and the sand is snow white. There are a few stairs but I think there are better set of stairs in the back for those who cannot walk so good. The view here is just so beautiful during the day and during the sun set. You can bring your... More

This is indeed the most beautifull beach in Curaçao. It is relatively small and wich precious views and shades of blue. It is important to know, that there is no infrastructure in this beach, such as, chairs, bars, restrooms, so you should go prepared to be autosufficient there.

No service at all, only some palapas for shade. A lot of little rocks. Unbeatable blue waters from the view point, that is what make this the most photographed beach on island and has the wow factor when showing to friends!

Blue clear water. Sitting in the sun relaxing. The children playing and swimming without problem. You can buy or bring your food and lemonade with you and have a great time with your family.

The area of Kenepa Beach is very beautiful and peaceful; you are right in the middle of nature. Take a plunge in Kenepa Beach and enjoy yourself while the sun shines and gives you a nice tan. The sea is nice and clean.

There are a lot of nice beaches on Westpoint, small and cosy. Snorkeling is great. The level of luxury is rather basic and be advised to bring your own food and drinks. Safety is not garanteed after dark let's say from 7 pm. Even locals will not carry cash or goods in fear of beeing robbed.
