Nice beach club to spend a day, you need to pay for parking $7. Restaurants, clean bathrooms and nice entrance to the water

There are many beautiful beaches on curacao, this is not one of them. In fact this is not a real beach, just some sand squashed between a hotel and a beach bar and thoroughly covered in beach chairs. It is beyond me why anybody would pay the entrance fee for this beach, especially considering that you will have to buy a beach chair since there is literally not a single place left where you could lie down on a towel. Even if there were any room this beach is just one overdeveloped tourist trap.

Supposedly there is good snorkeling once you swim outside the bay to the left, the right or to the reef drop off, but conditions were a little rough for this when we were there so we did not go out this far.

This beach is very nice, albeit on the small side. It has all the amenities you could ask for...comfy chairs, beautiful water, clean restrooms, tasty restaurant and bar. The only catch is it comes at a price. There is an entrance/parking fee and they do charge to use their comfy chairs. There are several other larger, free beaches but we found this to be a much-needed luxury after going to a few of the more crowded free ones.

Well the beach is merly to be called a beach, it´s just a maybe 45 ft strip of white sand nested between some beachclubs, which can be an advantage if you want to step out for a drink or something to eat, but there are much better and nicer beaches on Curacao

One of the best beaches to visit. Food is expensive and you have to pay an entrance fee for parking but overall was nice. I recommend you go on the outer trail on the right side of parking lot to hike to the farther side of beach. Had great view and beautiful lagoon.
