While in Curaçao we did rent a car for the week as our hotel was in Willemstad. The drive from Willemstad to Kenepa was really not too bad. We got to see quite a bit of the northwest side of the island. The beach itself is beautiful from the moment you get to the overlook in the parking lot. This... More

Out of our one week stay, we visited 4 beaches. This was my favorite. It is jaw-dropping stunning with warm, calm and clear water. A lot of the beaches are quite rocky; this one was minimally rocky making it easier on the feet. It's also a good area for snorkeling; my husband took some good videos.

Definitely its THE beach to go. A little bit far, you should rent a car. If you go to Curaçao and don't go there, your trip will be not complete!

I cannot say enough about this beach. The water is a shade of blue that you need to see and crystal clear. Pictures don't do it justice. When we pulled up to the parking lot our jaws hit the floor. Absolutely stunning with wonderful fish and excellent snorkeling

Without any doubts, this is the very best beach. Incredibly beautiful, with transparent terquoise water, white sand. The sea looks like a enormous swimming pool, quiet and warm. There are beach chairs (paid), and a little snack bar (lots of fried stuff). We brought our own snacks. It is the best place to swim and just enjoy the perfect water.... More

Its the most known and visited beach on the island. I suggest coming early here to secure a good spot. This beach is highly favored by tourists and locals alike. But it is one of the most beautiful beaches that Curacao has to offer.

One of the most beautiful beach in Curacao. You cand find Kenepa Chika and Kenepa Grandi separated of less than a kilometer one of each other. Kenepa Grandi is bigger and more beautiful than Kenepa Chiki. You can rent a sun umbrella and 2 beds for 20 dollars and you can use it in the same day in both beaches.... More

Kenepa Beach is not only the most beautiful natural beach on the Island but also the scene for the best beach-view. A must for all you photographers! Please note that this beach is also known as Playa Abao and used to be called Kenepa Grandi. Less than one kilometer before Playa Abao you find Kenepa Chikitu or small Knip which... More
