Swim, rest, and play at Jan Thiel Beach, a beach particularly popular with families. Located in an upscale residential area, the beach has an open feel, lining the shore of a wide bay. An area of water close to the shore has been partially enclosed to make a wading area and swimming pool suitable for young children. Head out to explore what lies beneath on a diving or snorkeling excursion, before resting up under the shade of a palm tree, munching on snacks bought at the onsite restaurant. A visit to Jan Thiel Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Willemstad online travel planner to plot your vacation.

  • Nice beach to swim. There are a lot of corals and stones so to get in and out of the water, takes some effort. The restaurants have beach chairs which you can rent. We had a great day.

  • This place used to be great before covid. Now, it is more of a tourist trap. There are better beaches that don't make you pay for admission or rent beach chairs. I believe it's after 5pm that you can get in without admission.
  • When you use every inch of available space to squeeze in it a beach chair the resulting experience is rather poor. There are many nicer beaches on the island.
