“Wonderful time at Kenepa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Not the easiest to find, there is another much smaller beach we hit before driving about a mile further and ending up in the right place. When we were there it was not very busy. Good snorkeling along the rock walls, not a lot of coral, but good number of fish. Water was amazingly clear. There is limited food, drink, and restroom. The drive out was nice as well. The view is spectacular.

“Gorgeous, but no amenities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The beach was stunning, a must see. The sand is soft too! BUT, there were no chairs, no food, no bathroom....it was disappointing.

“Classic Caribbean Beach Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was the last of half a dozen beaches we visited during our week on Curacao, and was one of the best (there were no bad ones!). A classic, arcing white sand beach with clear sparkling water and good snorkeling opportunities. They day we were there it was busy but not crowded, mostly locals with a sprinkling of overseas tourists. The smells of the barbecue added to the experience late in the afternoon, as did the arrival of an ice-cream van! Relaxed, family-friendly place.

“Beautiful !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Not one brochure can discribe this beach. Crystal clear water, lots of fish to be seen when snorkeling. Inexpensive beach bar, dutch orientated as in many places, but that's okay. Beach chairs for rent, $3 for the day.
Loved spening the afternoon here. Weekend is pretty crowded because it's a popular beach for the locals.
Must do when on Curacao !

“Gorgeous beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

One of the prettiest beaches that I have ever been to. If you're coming to Curacao, you have to go to this beach.
