Curaçao is a land of deep-blue waters, almost 40 sandy beaches and
gentle trade winds. Every beach has its own character, and most are
protected by peaceful cliffs and coves.
Cas Abao offers stretches of white sand, crystal clear waters, waving palm
trees and gazebos to hide from the blazing sun. The beach combines a
natural country setting with all the conveniences of a full service beach.
Cas Abao is ideal for swimmers of all ages and its reefs are a paradise for
snorkelers and scuba divers. There is a bar, restaurant, showers, massage
facility, and dive shop.
This beach allows for snorkeling along its rocky ledge and has a small
fishermen’s cove. Palapas provide adequate shade and there is also a snack
bar that is open both during the week and on the weekend. To the west of
the beach, a small trail leads into the countryside.
PLAYA KENEPA GRANDI / PLAYA KENEPA CHIKI
These two beautiful coves are among the island’s most popular and
beautiful beaches. Intimate Kenepa Chiki is partly shaded by
manchineel trees. The snack bar is open on weekends.
Locals like to camp here during holidays.
Playa Kenepa Grandi (Big Beach) has
several shade palapas set back from
the water and a large snack bar.
Admission is free.
