Kenepa is a very nice small beach not too crowded during the weekdays. So you can enjoy at much as you want. You can even bring your own bbq and enjoy it there with family and friends

THE most beautiful beach in Curacao. Crowded on weekends and holidays. Lots of beach chairs to rent. Some shade available. Clean and lovely views from cliffs surrounding the bay. Pay bathrooms.

Also known as Grote Knip, this beach at the west end of the island is a nice departure from the more crowded locations near Willemstad. The best snorkeling seemed to be along the rocks at the right hand edge. Lounges and umbrellas are available for rent but really unnecessary, just bring a towel and sit on the sand. Parking is...

Do not miss it! We visited this beach as part of the Best of West tour (serenity tours curacao). Too bad there was not enough time to explore all the water areas.

Pros: It is a nice beach with white sand and crystal clear water. Cons: The sun chairs are expensive and the toilets are not so nice.

The best part... It's not completely overrun by tourists. It's definitely plenty crowded, but nothing compared to Porto Mari or Cas Abou. Facilities are pretty basic, but if you just want to sit on a beautiful beach all day, this is a good choice. Snorkeling is pretty good as well. Chairs were supposed to be 3.50 ANG, but it didn't...

The most beautiful beach at the Island. The only thing is I think it will be more and more commercial.:(

Gorgeous beach with a great photo opportunity from the parking lot above. The sand is very clean and soft, the water is warm and it's all around great for sunbathing. If you're looking to snorkel however, it was one of the least interesting beaches we visitied during our stay.

Thank Karl B
