For those who want to visit a local beach Daaibooi is highly recommended. It is a wide-open beach located within a bay, where you can find shade beneath palapas (umbrellas made of palm leaves). The beach has no entrance fee. The bar, which is part of the beach has very local and friendly prices. You can also rent a beach chair.
A tip from Mister Paradise: take a BBQ, some meat and refreshing drinks with you, and end your day at the beach with a delicious BBQ at the setting sun.
Playa Porto Marie is nest to playa Daaibooi and a few kilometers from the village of St. Willibrord. It is one of Curaçao's' most beautiful beaches and has a fantastic underwater scene and we recommend you bring your snorkel with you. To access the beach you have to pay a small fee, but it is well worth it. There are beautiful reefs where you don’t have to scubadive to get a taste of the colorful underwater world of Curaçao. If you have no snorkel with you, no problem; there is the diving school who rents them out. The beach has a nice bar with a simple, yet comprehensive lunch menu.
Looking for a beach you see in films and on postcards? Then a trip to Cas Abou is a must. The road to the beach (just before Santa Martha) is a few kilometers long and the last stretch of the road is a bit rough but once arrived at the sandy white beach and clear blue sea, all is quickly forgotten. It is a wide-open beach with palapas (umbrellas made of palm leaves). There is a bar, a restaurant and a dive school.
Grote Knip is an authentic beach at West Point. With hardly any beach beds or extensive facilities, but white sand and sparkling blue sea. The beach is very popular with the locals on the weekends who come with fully stocked coolers for a family BBQ. Known for it’s cliffs where you can take a leap from, if you have the guts.
