“One of the most beautiful beaches ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Awesome green and blue shaves on the water, white sand, gourgeous rocks and cliffs surrounding the bay, no admitance fee and not that crowd as in Cas Abao... that is, no doubt, my favorite beach spot in Curacao.

There are some beach diving points available as well, which, though not experienced by me, seemed pretty interesting.

The setting is also a bit romantic and excellent for chilling out.

Do not miss the flamingo´s lake on the way back. Stop for a pair of photos.

“Very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

This is one of the best beaches in Curaçao. The road to get to it is good. There are many chairs that you can rent at the beach. There is also a nice restaurant there. You can walk through the pier and go swimming from there. Excellent.

“Best snorkelling for a beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Terrific beach, Great bar and restaurant. People dive off the beach. Calm waters. You see a lot of eels, fishes while snorkelling. It is shallow waters and not crowded. Go during the weekdays

“relaxed, food and diving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Diving centre for equipment, nice clean beach...bit rocky because of the coral. Nice location!! Food is good at the local restaurant and not too expensive.

One of our favorite places to snorkel in Curacao.

Big servings at the restaurant with good food.
