We chose this beach because alot of the local Dutch people recommended it. We were staying at the Royal Aquarium so the drive was approximately 50 minutes. We arrived at approximately 11:05 am and most of the huts and shaded areas were already taken. However we did manage to find a shady area by the trees. Getting there was a little bit of a challenge but we did make it after making a couple of wrong turns. They charge you 10 dollars, (Dutch) to get in per car and the chair rental is $3.00 . The water is very clear and there was an abundance of fish and we even met some divers from Texas who saw a sea turtle near the drop off. We did have a couple of orders of French fries and a cheeseburger at the grill and it was pretty good. Make sure you pack a cooler with a lot of drinks, sunscreen and water shoes if you have them, getting in and out of the water was a little challenging with all the rocks and slippery stones. Overall we all enjoyed it and would definitely would go back and recommend it to all beach lovers like us.

6$ per car and 3$ per chair is about the best deal in Curacao for a paying beach we found. And it's a sweet little beach with palapas (get there before 10am to score one) nestled between 2 cliffs. The beach doesn' have much of an incline and gets to be more than 4 ft deep very quickly. The water is crystal clear and turquoise. Great snorkeling right on the beach.

There' s an ok snackbar type restaurant on site, showers and bathrooms.

Get there early, bring a cooler filled ice, drinks and snacks, rent some chairs and get under a tree! Perfect day. Oh yeah, don't forget your snorkel gear and water shoes. Shower cost money. Beautiful location and there are bathrooms and a bar!

This beach is gorgeous. It's big, has a beach bar with food and drinks, chairs to rent, bathrooms. Plenty of shade too. The only complaint is the shells. The stack up near the water line and it makes getting in and out of the water a little tricky and SHARP! I recommend some water shoes.

This is a quiet, white sand beach with beautiful calm turquoise water and lots of amenities. Like Porto Marie, there are chairs, restrooms, a snack bar, dive shop and lots of parking, but this beach was quieter and seemed to have ore of a local vibe. Bring a little cash for renting a chaise lounge and drinks at the snack bar. The piña coladas were really yummy.
