No stairs, plenty of parking. You have to cross large rocks getting in and out of the water, but they are not difficult to cross. Excellent visibility and fish variety. Picnic tables with umbrellas are available. We went on a Sunday at midday and although it was crowded we got a table. The snorkeling is great. All sizes and varieties... More

Beautiful beach, larger than most in Curaçao. Nice white sand, excellent snorkeling spot. Many locals on weekends, which is a lot of fun. Bring your own food and drink, although there are facilities (and restrooms) all food seems to be fried and soggy, so you're better off packing a picnic. Loved this beach!

still worth it! One of the best beaches on the island. Been getting more and more attention in magazines and on websites. Great advertising and stimulation for the islands tourism. Went on a Sunday and it was packed. I don't think it's been able to keep up with it's popularity. Barely anywhere with shade to find or let alone a... More

As clear as the water gets on Curaçao. Limited services here, but there is a small cafeteria and toilets and showers can be used against payment.

This beach is about an hour's drive from Willemstad and road quality gets choppy but no parking/entrance fees for now. Kenepa Chiki (left at the fork) is small, but has a nice little reef on the left side to snorkel. Kenepa Grande (right at the fork) is much larger, way more folks, gorgeous, has a scenic cliff overview you can... More

It's a public beach and could be maintained better. The beach and water are nice you will be charged for chairs and TOILET USAGE! Food was just ok. No water in bathroom sinks. Cas Abao was much better. Views from up top are Great. There are 25 or so steps down to the beach from where you park.
