“Gorgeous blue water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Probably the most beautiful beach on Curaçao, and one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen.

The water is a clear, brilliant turquoise, the sand is soft. However, there is a ton of hard coral on the beach, you may want to bring diving/water shoes. Loungers are available for rent ($5 USD each), and there are also some shaded areas.

No entry fee, and free parking. A bit hard to find/out of the way (about an hours' drive from Willemstad), and the signage nearby refers to the beach as "Grote Knip" and "Playa Abou".

“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Amazing beach, clear blue water and super soft sand. Avoid on weekends unless you want to be surrounded by drunken locals and topless european girls.

“Beautiful beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

So calm and clear water. The sand is white and there are some kiosk that do some shadow. The beach in side knipe chiki is smaller and more beauty. The advantage these beach there are a bar where is possible buy soda, beer, water ... But the guy is very rude.

Nice beautiful blue beach. It was amazing! Very clear waters, we even saw one turtle. For sure one beach to visit when you are in Curacao.
