#4 of 8 in Beaches in Willemstad
Lounge on Playa Kenepa Chiki--a pristine, secluded beach on the western side of the island. Locals tend to crowd the small beach on weekends, though it usually remains quiet on weekdays. Bring refreshments and have a picnic on the sand, sunbathe, and enjoy the tranquillity. Have a swim in the warm, clear water, or put on your snorkeling gear to explore the nearby coral reef, home to manta rays and sea turtles.

  • I am a little hesitant to write this review, because this was one of our favorite beaches, and part of the reason is that it is not very crowded. I got the feeling that this is more of a local beach, ...  more »
  • It is one of the Public beaches of Curacao. It is reached by taking Bus FlN 2.25, from Terminal Otrobanda. The tour is 45 minutes. From where you are left by bus, there is 2 km of walk by asphalt road to the beach. You can always get a ride. There are public umbrellas and you get charged sorer. There is a precarious beach bar. I recommend wearing water shoes. There's a lot of coral on the way in. From there to kenepa Grandi there is 1 km of walk by asphalt road. From Kenepa Chiqui to the bus point 1 km more approximately. The one-way bus point is not the same as the return bus point. This stop is in the middle of the route and has no shadow. Ask bus horrios for the return, as they do not happen very often. The road is paved and there is nothing at all. Unfortunately Curacao is very limiting for those who do not rent Auto. Bus lines leave you far from all the beaches. The beach itself, is very small, very frequented by locals, I found nothing from the other world, the sea is cold and has a lot of coral in the background. The water is calm, and shallow. I wouldn't come back at all.
