Save your money and go somewhere else. The people are all but rude,we had two descent meals in a week. The rest of the meals compared to fast food in the US and the national air line is the biggest joke all.

Kenepa is definitely worth the 45min ride from Willemstad!! Most gorgeous beach on the island! Go early in the morning before the tours start coming after 11am. Perfect for snorkeling and swimming in the clearest water! There are rocks on the bottom but they are flat so it's not too hard to get in and out of the water. Best... More

There are only two ways to get there by car a northern route or a southern one...we took the northern one which had road construction and that was rough riding so... ask a local on route selection before heading out. Finding the beach was a... More

Grote Knip (pronounced Kenepa) was rated as the best beach on the island so we didnt want to miss out. Of the few we visited, Knip was the most breathtaking. White sandy beach, not very large, cliff views up a few steps, and not very busy or commercial. It was $5 US to rent a seat for the day which... More

One of the top beaches in Curacao it also has one of the most picture perfect beach views in the region. Come in the weekend and you'll get a great feel for the local beach culture as residents divulge in bbq'ing, playing domino, cliff jumping, listening to music and dancing. And of course swimming in as clear and blue waters... More

We heard about Kenepa Beach and took a drive to see the views, which did not disappoint. The beach was easy to find and there is a decent size parking lot. The views are magnificent. There were a fair amount of people on the beach but it wasn't too busy. Lots of people were snorkeling. We didn't spend much time... More
