How to get to Playa Kenepa Chiki​

Driving from the historic Kenepa Plantation Landhuis you will first encounter Playa Kenepa Chiki.  Watch for the signs and stay left when the road turns right.

Playa Kenepa Grandi (“big beach”) is a much larger beach further along the road, in an isolated and practically deserted region of the plantation.  However, this does not mean that the place is not crowded, especially on weekends, when residents will enjoy this “one of a kind” public beach.

Driving down the barren road from Playa Kenepa Chiki (Klein Knip) you will first encounter the parking lot and then the water starts to come into sight where you will immediately be awestruck by the intensely vivid turquoise sea that lies beneath the surrounding cliffs.  The sun’s rays reflecting off the white sandy sea floor causes the many shades of blues to come to life, enticing you to dive in and immerse yourself into the warmth of these Caribbean waters by enjoying a breath-taking snorkeling or scuba diving experience.

The Kenepa Plantation is the perfect place on Curaçao to get away from it all, to get lost in nature and spend a relaxing day on the beach with an aquatic wonderland just a few footsteps away, across the sand of these magnificent beaches.

Since both beaches are public, there is no entrance fee required. But there are beach beds and umbrellas available for rent, along with snorkeling gear, transparent kayaks and paddle boards. For more information, please contact Playa Kenepa or a recommended Curaçao Dive Operator.
