Beautiful bay with turquoise sea and plenty of trees / shade around. The entrance to the water has a lot of coral so water shoes are very helpful but stunning marine life once in the sea. Gentle waves so suitable for a variety of swimming abilities with nice restaurant at one end.

Lovely water, snorkeling, easy access...my favorite of about eight beaches visited in Curacao. The two guys running the bar were so positive, upbeat and funny---made it a pleasure to hang out there for awhile. Try the banana soup if they have it!

Look for the lady in a hat to find you. For a small fee that you pay to her, you can visit this excellent Curaçao beach. It has one of the better facilities with dining and bar for Curaçao beaches and you are guaranteed to see awesome marine life while snorkeling.

We found this beach on recommendation and it didn't disappoint! The sea is crystal clear and you are made very comfortable with plenty of beds to lie out on under the shade. The food and drinks are very well served. The snorkelling was amazing and totally agree with the benefits of swim shoes to get over that stoney ridge that... More

Has a bar, restaurant, dive shop, adequate parking and beach chairs. Cannot go wrong and the water is great and the double reef for diving is amazing. Great for tanning, snorkeling and diving. And even when it is busy it accommodates a LOT of people with its space and parking

Crystal clear aqua blue water. Extremely rocky at shoreline but most beaches in Curacao are. Temperature of water was perfect. A Lot of fish to see for snorkelling, visited a couple times during our stay in Curacao. Have I seen nicer beaches in other parts of the world? Yes but it still ranks fairly high. Beach entrance is $3.50us per... More

Every beach we visited in Curaçao has a rocky entrance and rocky bottom. Bring good water shoes as you will need them. Having said that, this beach was nice, clean, restaurant on site with good good options. Water was clear enough to see fish swimming around your feet. Water temp was enjoyable. Entrance fee ($3.50 US) and chair fee ($3... More

Lovely, pristine white sand beach. Nothing better than a nice cool bath in the sea while the sun is scorching out. Just make sure to walk with sunblock and enough water! We saw some people snorkeling, but honestly there wasn't as much to see there as at other beaches. Nice place if you're looking for a relaxing day at the... More
