This is a great beach!! The water is turquoise, warm and calm. You can snorkel and swim. There is no great bar available so take some food and water (beer).

A lovely little stretch of white sand beach! Even if you're not a swimmer, it is a very pretty spot to just sit under the trees or one of the coco "umbrellas" and just leave your cares behind. I spent much of my time at Little (Kleine) Knip Beach laughing at a pair of brightly plumed birds snacking on a... More

Kenepa is a beautiful beach with plenty of parking and chairs. Comparing Kenepa to Santa Maria which is also in the area I'd rate Kenepa a notch lower than Santa Maria.

In all my travels of Curacao nothing made me more discouraged than my brief visit to this beach. Pay for entry, pay for a lounge, pay for shade...the only thing missing were the mickey mouse ears & roller coasters - oh but fear not, woman can go topless - I don't think you have to pay for that.

Great beach (bring your beach shoes - very rocky). Free parking, snack & drink bar on the beach, tiki huts and picnic tables on the beach and good for snorkeling. Bring your camera for a beautiful sunset location.

Kenepa is one of the beaches on the west side of the island. the scenery is gorgous. Spend some time up on the cliff (you go down to the beach by a stair) just to look at that beautiful view. The beach itself has some trees, away from the seaside and also some tabels with parasols. If you are lucky... More
