This is a lovely public beach. Quite large when you compare to other Curacao beaches. During the weekend very busy so if you want peace and quite pick another day of the week. Curacao has some beaches that are just out of this world so beautiful and this is on of them. I've seen a lot of beaches all over... More

This was hands down the best beach we went to when we visited Curacao, and probably one of our favorites that we've been to overall in the Caribbean. It is a public beach, so facilities there are lacking. It looked like there were some restrooms and a snack bar there, but nothing was open when we visited. Tip: After you're... More

The beach's on the island that are the naturally occuring locations are definately world class. They are totally unique to any other beaches that we have visited. Curacao is a definate snorkle and scuba location.

This is one of the best beaches we have on the island. Hopefully it will get even better now that there are plans to improve the facilities. Anyone that visits the island, MUST take some time to indulge in this crystal clear water. It is not much of a touristic spot. It is where you will find more locals during... More

There are two Kenepa beaches (Playas Knip) one big and one small. Both are just as beautiful, but the one in Grote Knip was the most beautiful beach I was in. Although all beaches in Curacao are very rocky instead of sandy, the water couldn't be any clearer. The water was calm with just a few waves, and it's perfect... More
