I was stunned when I entered this beach area. THe water was inviting and the beach was well laid out with lots of lounging chairs and other places to relax on.

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.
