A nice beach in a nice cove, popular with the locals, especially on weekends. Did not seem as special as touted, but it is a nice beach.

Have been to most beaches on Curacao and recently found this one as the signs leading to it are confusing. No entrance/parking fee, plenty of shade, with plenty of chairs. Cleaner than some of the other "free beaches". Located on the less developed west side...More

The beach is in fact beautiful. The snorkeling was OK - although the day we were there the visibility was poor. Keep in mind that tour buses stop there ALL DAY LONG. It feels weird to be reading on the beach and have tourists take...More

Very pretty but wear water shoes. The day we were there someone saw something in the water telling everyone to get out. Still not sure what people saw, but I got back in the gorgeous water again without incident. It's lovely!

crystal clear water with real turquoise waters. on weekends very crowded and if you like to join some island life then you should visit on a Sunday. If you prefer less people, go during the week.

On a monday, just after carnival, the beach was crowded more than expected. Klein Knip, just a km south, was perfect to be. Same organisation, you pay only once, for both

Perhaps the most beautiful beach on Curacao. Can rent loungers and umbrellas. Good amount of shade. Not the best snorkeling but decent.

This beach (also called Knip) is the nicest beach on the island. Stunning. I was blown away! It's a must see when you are in Curacao. Make a day of it and rent a car and head West! A lot of really nice beaches there.
