Both tourists and locals favor Cas Abao Beach, and it's not hard to see why. The white-sand beach is surrounded by cliffs and lush greenery, and shaded by thatched palapas (large palm umbrellas). Sea turtles, spotted eagle rays and a rainbow of tropical fish beckon snorkelers into warm, turquoise waters. Are your muscles sore from swimming? You can get a full-body massage right on the waterline. Feeling peckish? The Beach Bar & Restaurant offers a range of snacks and drinks that will sustain you all day.
Recent visitors loved Cas Abao beach for its stunning beauty and convenient facilities, although some lamented the extra fees associated with something as simple as a shower. Those who went snorkeling highly recommended it, with many saying they were able to see a diverse array of aquatic life, aka not just fish. Travelers also strongly recommended bringing water shoes or sandals, as the shallows are littered with pebbles and broken coral, which can be hard on your soles.
Cas Abao Beach is about 20 miles northwest of Willemstad, near the town Fontein. The beach is only accessible by car, and there is a parking lot on site.

The entrance fee for a car of four people is 10 guilders (about $5.60) from Monday to Saturday and 12.50 guilders (about $7) on Sundays and holidays.
