The larger beach is quite busy (and this is not high season) and is absolutely beautiful. It us great to take pictures from the landing above the beach before you head down. Kaneohe Chikki is a bit smaller but still beautiful. A bit less crowded too.

This is one of the best local beaches in Curacao. Access is free but you need a vehicle or friends to get you there. Most people bring their own food and drinks but there is a small snack bar for those who don't.

Just perfect, be sure to be there early as you might want to get a place in the shade. The water is cristal clear.

This beach is worth the drive from Willemstad! The waters were a beautiful turquoise and even had cliff people were jumping off. Remember to bring water shoes, as it's an unspoiled beach and there is coral upon entering the water. Free parking. There is one place to eat at. Be sure to have small bills to pay for the food...

We stopped here on our way back from Westpunt, picturesque spot, but the beach did look a little rocky.

It's a bit tough to find, and that's compounded by the fact that it has other names! (Grot Knip for one) but this is our favorite beach in the Carribean- and we've been to many! It's not crowded but if you want to find shade you need to get there early. No huts that I remember and no snack bar-... More

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
