Great Find, worth the drive.

I recommend this place since it has a great restaurant, bar , and beach. The beach is surrounded by cliffs making it a good place to snorkle. The "beach sheriff" will track you down and make you pay for parking (per person, not per car) and if you want a beach chair, pay for that also. But, on... read more

Beautiful water with a resting dock offshore. The beach area was blocked by rock formations which made for great swimming and snorkeling. No crowds at all.

We came here from a cruise ship. We came with 4 others and the cost to get here was 12.50pp each way from the pier. We arrived early at 0930 and by 1100 all the chairs were gone. We had shade under an umbrella with two chairs for $14 total. We had a drink and fries at the bar with... More

Beautifull beach, nice food, pretty good snorkling. Good beach beds. If you come before 10u00 you can choose one of the more private umbrella's at the end of the beach. Lizzards and birds complete the picture. The underwaterworld is pretty good compared to other beaches but it is no sea aquarium.

What's not to like? Lots of folks prefer Cas Abou beach but the reality is there are soooo many great beaches in the Banda Abou part of Curacao (why would you go anywhere else?) that it's toought to choose one that isn't 5-5 star. Great dive shop with a double reef out front. Crazy blue waters. Nice shade tents, lounge... More

Terrible for snorkeling. But like many of the coves on Curacao, it's beautiful. We enjoyed the restaurant, though: decent, relatively inexpensive food with a great view and a lot of visiting bananaquits and troupials.

Located on one of my favorite beaches on Curaçao. Stunning views and beach. Relaxed staff and complete menu for every budget. Food quality is perfect. Plan a day to go here to this must visit place.

I've been to this restaurant a couple times. Most of the time only had lunch. Lunch was nice though! Prices are reasonable, service was okay, sometimes had to wait long for the drinks, but most of the time was everything just 'reasonable'. Overal, not that special, but just ok. Do keep an eye open for the many wasps.. they where... More

We had a nice lunch with cold bears, tuna salad sandwich and a hamburger w fries and after went to the beach. The location is a popular place for divers and tourists. If you like crowds than you should go here. Food was less expensive than in most other locations.
