Discover Cas Abao Beach

cas abao beach

It’s no secret that Curacao is an island. And, as islands always are, Curacao is surrounded by sparkling blue water and the white sand beaches that come with them. But what may be a secret is that not all beaches are created equal.

At Cas Abao Beach, the sands are whiter, the seas are brighter, and the shores are often less crowded than other popular Curacao beaches. Tourists and locals alike flock to crowd-pleasing beaches like Knip Beach, known locally as Playa Kenepa Grandi. That leaves equally breathtaking yet less trafficked beaches like Cas Abao to those who are truly in the know.

Turquoise waters invite swimmers and snorkelers. Soft white sand invites sun-bathers. A snack bar and restaurant invites anyone with an appetite for local flavors. Treat yourself to a true Curacao beach experience at Cas Abao.
