Jan Thiel is my least favourite beach of Curaçao. The beach is very, very small. Stoney and some strong currents. So not ideal if you're with small children. Furthermore, I don't like the atmosphere and crowd. Let's say it's a mass tourism spot that's frequented by a lot of Dutch package deal people. Although it wasn't that busy when we where there due to tourism taking a Covid-19 hit. We left the beach quickly for a spot at Zest, which was better (but still not as good as Blue Bay).

very good, good food. But a little bit too expensive for what you get (small portions). Tables not so clean

We prefer the quiet more natural beaches, but wanted to see this. We stayed all day. There is a good restaurant, great bar, clean restrooms and the water was amazing! We unfortunately visited when it was rather windy, so the waves were up. We couldn’t swim out to the reef in the middle of the bay. We read that this is definitely something to see. We still enjoyed snorkeling both the left and right sides on the bay. The waves were quite rough on the right side though. We still viewed quite a lot of fish, and many varieties. Most of the coral was dead and bleached though. I would recommend this beach to anyone who loves to snorkel and to families as well. Water entry is very easy, especially on the left-hand side.

Nice beach, plenty of space, beautiful area. Lot's of places to grab a drink of food. Many of the beaches you pay a small fee to use for the day. They often also charge for a chair rental. Good beach for families with kids. Easy to find when driving.
