The beach is quiet but no restrooms. There is a security guy so your car is safe and the beach is clean. We had hiked to the Blue Room and saw a tour out with "Captain Good Life" and decided to come back the next day to go out with him. It is a lot easier to visit the Blue Room by boat than by climbing up/down the rocks to get to it and his tour was $25 for a two hour tour. He also took us to a sunken ship and to some great snorkeling sites not otherwise accessible. He is a really nice local guy/small business operator and this is a family run operation. It's nice to support the little guy and this was a really enjoyable tour well worth the price.

One of the quieter beaches, palapas with bench seats and table, sunbed hire at weekends only, some beach cleaning then, security officer, a few friendly dogs, adequate parking, toilets no longer in use, a shabby establishment at the south corner offers boat trips otherwise no commercial, take food and water. Some fish and the odd turtle. A path leads off along the cliff tops to the Blue room, there are robbers about there. The beach is clearly signposted off the main road, black top all the way.

We weren’t sure what to eat so the owner recommended a combo plate for 2 of mahi-mahi, calamari and shrimp. It came with a bushel of orange french fries and muscles. A lot of food for $30 USD.

A quite big Curaçao beach! Few people. We saw seaturtles here (please respect them and enjoy them in a dictanse). The plapas was of no use since they had benches build around them though. The «restaurant» was terrible. Abused parots in a small cage and a chained awfull looking dog. Garbage everywhere. Toilets where not to use. You could rent sunbeds.
