Most relaxing beach, offers good snorkeling along the left and right sides, close to the rocks. Great place to watch the sunset!

Kenepa (also called Grote Knip and Klein Knip on Curacao maps) was amazing! Definitely the bluest, clearest water we saw on the island. Snorkeling is great here with some very cool drop corals near the cliffs along the edges of the beach. We did these two beaches (Klein and Grote) on both a weekend day and a week day and... More

The beach is really nice beside the view from the top, snorkeling there is great but you can find a lot of garbage at ocean, that is sad. There is a place for parking and a fantastic view! Worth a visit.

I was disappointed that part of the cliff for cliff jumping had recently crumbled into the sea and the facilities looked like they were in need of repair and updating. I knew going in that this wasn't going to be as amenity filled as other beaches we visited and if you like simple, beautiful, and free.

Ok, let's keep this short. If you are on curacao and you want to see unbelievable water just get there. I'm not even going to post pics. Google them and drool. Good snorkeling as well for seeing all the basic fish. Hit it just right mid morning when the sun is out with no clouds this place is staggering! On... More

Free access without conservation measures are transforming Kenepa Beach in an average place unfortunately
