“Very nice beach for a small price”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

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.

“Beach? Sandstrip”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

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

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 via mobile

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.

“OK place”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

The snorkeling was not good inside the bay and the water outside was too choppy to spend a lot of time outside it.
