Curaçao is a land of deep-blue waters, over 35 sandy beaches, and gentle
trade winds. Every beach has its own character, and most are protected
by peaceful cliffs and coves, giving you ample space and privacy to stretch
out and relax.
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.
A small bay close to town, 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 (Groot Knip) has
several shade palapas set back from
the water and a large snack bar.
Admission is free.
