Would definitely recommend this beach during your Curacao stay! Small fee for beach chair rental, but there are free chairs available. Make sure to bring food and drinks to cut back on cost. Also don't forget your snorkel gear.

Yes, the reviews are true. This is the most amazing beach. After this one, the other will look "pale"... thus, you should only visit this beach after you see the others. TIP: arrive early if you want to secure a umbrella for you. (Thanks God)...More

Parking is free, there is sun lounger charge. Taxi is best way to get there, you can go by bus, but it is a long walk from the bus stop, and the buses are every 2 hours if I remember rightly!.......
