Elegant Seafront

There's not a ton of sand at Jan Thiel Beach, but that doesn't make this residential seashore any less attractive. Locals and tourists alike enjoy marinating on beach chairs under the murmuring palms, wading into the sheltered waters, or embarking on a snorkeling or scuba-diving foray. The Jan Thiel Beach is among the most family-friendly beaches in Curacao, given the mostly enclosed oceanfront wading pool, and there are restaurants, bars, and concessions within easy reach.

The Jan Thiel Beach makes for a wonderfully accessible and well-developed seaside hangout just south of Willemstad. Make it a beach day!

Utrip Tips

*There's a small admission fee.
*There are also a bunch of shops around, so you can mix things up a little.
*Check out Sandy's Plateau (just off of Jan Thiel Lagoon) if you want a cool spot to dive.
