“Stunning beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Absolutely beautiful beach!! As with the other Curacao beaches, there is some coral on the shoreline, but sandy once you are in. It was breath taking to see though with the rock cliffs and the clear turquoise water as far as you could see. I wouldn't say the snorkeling was great here. I found it to be better at Kenepa Chiki (the smaller beach to the right). We really enjoyed them both!!

“Day Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Beautiful! But it is quite rocky at the shore and then a steep drop off - not so good for little kids who may want to swim in water that isn't over their heads.

“My favourite beach by FAR on Curaçao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Crystal clear water, white sand, a gorgeous scenic drive out to the beach, a good mix of locals and tourists, and don't forget to jump off that cliff! The photo opps before you descend the stairs to the beach are absolutely amazing. This is the best beach on the island. Make sure you bring plenty of food and beverages/booze and or break out the BBQ. The snackbar there tends to run out of food.

The water is so clean and clear. The beach was nicely maintained. If you don't have any snacks there is like a snack bar there where you can get fries and bbq the eat.

“Beautiful little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

This is beautiful and uncrowded beach even on the weekends. The snorkelling is nice on the right side of the beach by the rocks. Also, the beach is full f little crabs, very nice to watch.
