We had a wonderful time at this beach although the snorkeling wasn't as good as the beach at our hotel. You can pay for loungers or you can get a picnic table for free.

This beach is beautiful...from the white sandy beach, to the turquoise water, it is a dream come true. Although things may look busy when you look down from the parking lot area, once you are down on the beach, it is much deeper than expected and there are plenty of lounge chairs to be had as well as umbrellas and...

While on a recent 2-week vacation, rented a car to explore this beach. The view from parking lot is spectacular. The beach is small and very 'rocky' getting in and out of the water. Strongly recommend water shoes. The snorkeling around the edges/cliffs was very good!! $20 for 2 lounge chairs and an umbrella. You have to pay to use... More

it truly is, some things you need to know: - almost no shallow swimming, not a good spot for young tots just learning or red cross level up to 2 - beach chairs and umbrellas will cost you, beach is free, the rest costs a bit ($20 for 2 chairs and umbrella roughly) - snorkeling along the rocks is "okay"...

When you've seen different beaches with clear water and white sand, Kenepa beach is nice but average. There are lots of stones in between the sand which makes walking a little difficult and when entering the sea you walk over stone plates which are pretty slippery. The bay, however, is very beatiful and it's relatively quiet there. Apart from that,... More

The beach has limited parking. We went on a sunday (busiest day of the week). If you get to the entrance you can make a beautiful picture of the beach from up. The water is exactly like you would expect, maybe better. It's very blue. The beach is cozy with a lot of locals spending time with family and BBQ... More

Beautiful beach. Remarkable turquoise water especially in the sun. A little remote but worth the drive if you like swimming.

It is a bit of a drive from town (about 45 minutes) but it was totally worth it. There is a small beach (bear left when driving on the main road) that was fantastic. The larger beach has bathroom facilities and showers. The beach and chair tickets are interchangeable between the two.

One of the bluest beaches in Curacao, especially because the parking lot gives you a high view over the beach and water, great for pictures. Unfortunately, all of Curacao's authenthic beaches, so the ones located outside of Willemstad, have loads of rocks, corals and other stuff to cut your feet on. It is definitely possible to go there bare foot,... More
