There was no parking fee and the Beach is close to many shops and restaurants. I saw quite a few fish but also saw bottles and a nappy which was offputing. I would not return for snorkelling. Cas aboa is a nicer spot for snorkelling and less busy.

this is a new one for me.
this was our first trip to Curacao. one week was spent in an isolated area near the west end and the second week we spent in the city. so Mambo beach seemed like it had to be one of the things to do during our second week. we were staying close by so one day we set off to check it out.
after taking some time to try and figure out where we could park and how to actually get to the beach (there were no signs that we saw telling you where you could or could not park) we then came across a young lady sitting at what appeared to be the hostess station for the Cabana restaurant. we were thinking of coming for dinner here. as we said hello and tried to walk on by, she stopped us and asked to see our beach tickets. we said we had no beach tickets and were coming to check out the beach and more importantly see the Cabana restaurant and their menu. so see graciously allowed us in without paying the $3.50 u.s.each fee.
we quickly realized this was not our scene. my wife was hot and has trouble walking sometimes so she sat down to rest while i took a stroll to check out the rest of the area.
i returned to my wife to find that the lady who had let us in actually followed my wife and i. and when i briefly left my wife, the lady came up to her and demanded payment. unbelievable.
so we promptly started walking out and checked out a couple more menus on the way including Fuoco (another spot we were considering having a dinner).
so bottom line for us......it seems utterly ridiculous to to us to ask customers to pay a fee for the privilege of eating at one of the Mambo beach restaurants or to spend their money in one of the shops along the beach. we did not return.
this is not a quiet relaxing place to be. it is jammed packed with people with lounge chairs piled side by side. no thanks.
if however you are a young person looking to meet people and/or party at the many clubs ect then this is the place to be.

We came here on a Tuesday afternoon the day after Christmas. We were able to get some beach chairs with an umbrella. It was busy but not too crowded. The waters were cool and the sands were white-grey. There was decent sun as there were clouds in the sky and during the rainy season. We spent a few hours wading in the waters and then, ate a late lunch at the Modero Ocean Club. Out of all the beaches we visited, Kenepa Grandi was the most beautiful. The Mambo Beach Boulevard was also quite nice as it was filled with stores and restaurants to eat at.

This is good place to spend some time in the sand and water. It is nice protected swimming lagoon with protective reefs covered in crabs. It costs money to enter and use beach longers. Fairly commercialized, but a nice day relaxing at the beach.

Mambo Beach was a short cab ride from downtown and offered a wide variety of shopping, dining and gorgeous beach and waterfront. Food and drinks were only steps away from the comfy beach chairs (we did have to pay a nominal fee for entrance to the beach and chair rental). It was a wonderful place to spend a lazy afternoon in Curacao.
