In Activities by LA Travel Magazine

Step onto the warm, coral-clad sands of Groot Knip, and it all hits, you have just entered Paradise. The crystal-clear blue waters and warm sea air will inspire you to explore the island’s captivating shores.

Beloved by the locals and tourists alike, Groot Knip on Curacao’s west side is an amazing and special beach on the island. Whether you want to snorkel, sunbathe or dive off a cliff, this beach has it all. This long stretch of powdery white sand is met by soft waves of bright turquoise blue water. If you’re feeling brave, take a plunge into the Caribbean Sea off one of the nearby cliffs.

Don’t forget your snorkeling gear, as there is some great underwater exploring to do. This is a favorite among the islanders so make sure to get here early and claim your spot on Knip Bay.  If you plan for an early arrival time you may just get lucky enough to have the entire beach to yourself!
