Beautiful!

It's a beautiful, secluded beach. There's a floating platform that you can climb up on if you swim out a bit. Watched the best sunset I've ever seen on there. Go see it! (bring... read more

Not as Spectacular as I expected and the beach bar at this place is not very good. Besides this, the excursions to this beach that go there and take pics while you are there enjoying your day ... puts you in the position of not very relaxing ... not the best beach in Coraçao

Beautiful water! After a long, hot island tour, this is the perfect way to cool off and emjoy what this island is about. Beautiful beaches. Since its public you have to be alert to keep an eye on your things and the showers were not very clean.

I went on a tour of Curacao that included an hour long stay at Knip Beach. It was a nice experience. It's a public beach where the locals swim and relax... barbeque, etc... The water was chilly.... like most beaches in that area of the Caribbean. While in the water, I was stung by a few sea lice (jellyfish larvae).... More

LOVED Kenapa beach. We stayed at the Marriott so it was about 45-50 minutes away. SO glad we took the drive. The beach is beautiful with crystal clear water and a drop dead view above. The amenities were better than we expected. There was a small food stand and beach beds for rent. Not sure if this is available every... More

Great beach. Great snorkeling. Make sure you hide your valuables. Either slide them in the trunk without anyone seeing or bring them with you. Heard stories about locals breaking into cars. I saw window glass in several parking spots. Just be smart and not lazy about your things and you will have fun.

Beautiful beach! Limited service, with chairs, bathrooms and a bar. You pay to use all of the above. Great for snorkeling!

This is THE beach of Curaçao. The view is beautiful and the water is cristal clear. Unfortunately, it was a little bit too crowded for me, who was looking for a quiet place to snorkel. Free parking, free access to the beach.

I couldn't believe the shade of the water when we arrived! It reminded us of the water in Bora Bora! Kids enjoyed jumping from the cliff! Not much in the way of snorkeling but a great place to spend some time and relax. I will say that we found the trash on the island to be a problem and found... More

Kenepa beach is located on the west side of the island in the middle of nowhere! Away from the crowds and fairly quiet. The water is absolutely amazing. The most beautiful torquise water I've ever seen. Get here early to grab sunbathers and a thatched hut. Other things to know. There is no entrance fee but there is a man... More
