“Nice beach, but there are much nicer ones on Curacao”
Review of Jan Thiel Beach

Jan Thiel Beach
Ranked #28 of 114 things to do in Willemstad
Attraction details
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This artificial beach is very crowded. If you can find a bed you lay side by side. There are only a few places where you can go in the sea, the rest of this beach is about 1,5 meter above sea level. Zanzibar is a nice place, they serve good food and drinks and bring it to your beach chair. Papagayo and Zest (around the corner) are nicer places to stay. More expensive, but less crowded and they have a nice beach pool in front.
Entrance for this beach is 6 NAF per person (10 NAF) and beach chairs are about 5 dollars a chair at Zanzibar.

Elbow to elbow lounge chairs on the beach, high prices for everything and very slow service.
Glad we didn't stay there.

The beach is beautiful. You need to pay 6 fl. per person to get in and you get full services (chairs, showers, swimming platforms) There are at least 6 restaurants, a casino and a couple of bars plus a natural sea water pool.

Curacao was fabulous. Beautiful coral beaches, great snorkeling, lots of small beaches. Jan Thiel was a great public beach.
