Jan thief has a decent variety of shops, restaurants and bars in addition to a great beach. The beach can get pretty busy with guests from the nearby resorts. The happy hour is very nice.

Jan Thiel is a nice beach, you do have to pay for parking and beach chairs. Snorkling is possible, there are also Some Nice cabanas and there is a good restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Went here for a few hours on a cruise boat tour. Good facilities, though crowded in some areas. The beach is rocky, but that makes for good snorkeling in some areas. There's a large artificial pool that is good for those with kids or not...More

It is a moderately upscale part of the island without many of the all-inclusive resorts nonsense. The beaches are great and varied. The harbor at Spanish waters is nearby as are many attractions and restaurants. Having covered the island over 10 days we were quite...More

After hearing so much about this beach, we were looking forward to adding this to our brief trip to Curacao - but I will certainly skip it next time. Very expensive, crowded, and busy. If you want to go, get there very early so you...More

Jan Thiel beach is 13 km from the cruis ship terminal. This will take you 25-45 minutes depending on traffic.
