Lounge style beach with endless facilities but filled with one sun bed next to the other. Crowded with only a small beach access to the sea. Shops and restaurants everywhere. Not my idea of Curaçao!

I went to this beach for my first and second scuba diving- Amazing! There is a ship wreck under the water and tons of colorful fish.

I fell in love with this place. Fantastic beach, great for snorkelling. Lots to do and lots to see. Close to restaurant and all amenities. Within walking distance from hotels or villas. Marvelous.

In my opinion, this is a resort style beach. There were a lot of beach chairs and cabanas, all which were very coliseum stationed next to each other. There were several place to get a bite and bars that made great cocktails (but the drinks...More
