Its the most known and visited beach on the island. I suggest coming early here to secure a good spot. This beach is highly favored by tourists and locals alike. But it is one of the most beautiful beaches that Curacao has to offer.

One of the most beautiful beach in Curacao. You cand find Kenepa Chika and Kenepa Grandi separated of less than a kilometer one of each other. Kenepa Grandi is bigger and more beautiful than Kenepa Chiki. You can rent a sun umbrella and 2 beds for 20 dollars and you can use it in the same day in both beaches.... More

This beach really is stunning .. the swimming was great, the snorkeling disappointed a little but overall it really was beautiful. It is worth the drive, which was pretty cool itself (we drove from Willemstad) but make sure you bring a few bucks to cover the cost of a lounger, using the washroom and for a snack.

Kenepa (or Knip) is one of the top beaches on the island. The beach is small and there are some seedy characters around, but the snorkeling is wonderful so it's worth it. There are some rocks to the right of the beach where there are a lot of unusual fish. There are a few lounge chairs and picnic tables. Someone... More

Went to this beach but unfortunately hurricane Matthew had other plans and all my friends and I could do was look at the water, maybe next time. However the beach looked beautiful and inviting.
