Playa Kenepa Chiki is a tiny beach at the west coast of Curacao. It’s an intimate and quite beach. Perfect for a relax holiday. Once snorkeling here, you will forget the time and will keep on snorkeling! It is located just before Grote Knip (Playa Kenepa Grandi), which is known for its turquoise water. Kleine Knip is mainly visited by the locals. On Sundays it can be busy, because locals love to close the weekend with a barbecue on the beach.
