Owner description: City Beach 88 is the first and only city beach in the Pietermaai District in Curaçao. Lounge on one of the beach chairs in the sand, kick back with a refreshing beer in hand, or sip from a tropical cocktail while overlooking the ocean. When you're in need of a snack, the food menu consists of different finger foods and crisp pizzas. 88 offers a chance to experience beach life right here in Willemstad.
Useful Information: Food available for purchase, Bathroom facilities

Was here to check the beach and despite just check'n'go we must sit and join for few drinks. The beach is free from entrance fee, providing a free wifi and wonderful look at the sea. The staff is also very friendly and helpful, providing some snacks, alcohol / non alcohol drinks and appropriate places to sit. Despite all these nice facts I can't imagine to spend here all day due to small property. What I like was the hammocks to enjoy a little bit of shade during the sunny days, places to sit with lovely viewpoints and their's drinks which may be make as takeaways.

Interesting and chill place to relax and hang out. The staff is great, and the view is wonderful. Due to the waves, not a great place to swim unless you have surf shoes and strong swimming skills.

Hi Jillian,

Thanks for visiting, we are happy to read that you enjoyed hanging out at City Beach 88. We see swimmers and divers going into the ocean every day but when the waves are too high for your liking you can also cool off by hopping underneath the shower or asking us for a cold drink. We'll gladly serve you your favorite drinks!

If there was one thing we did not expect to find in the city, it would be a beach. But then we found 88, a small yet cozy beach in the middle of the vibrant Pietermaai District. How fortunate! The beach beds are extremely comfortable, the staff is friendly, and the service is quick. After our swim in the ocean, we took a shower to rinse off, then ordered some drinks and snacks from the bar. The menu is simple but offers a good choice for everyone, they even had some vegetarian options. Plus, they have a daily happy hour on beer buckets and wine bottles from 5-6pm. City Beach 88 is a great place to spend a relaxing day! We'll be back for sure.

City Beach 88 is the only thing the Scuba Lodge misses: relaxing on the beach. Good thing it’s from the same owner!

City Beach 88 is a sweet hidden gem in the Pietermaai district. It’s new and looks fresh. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is great.

Nice spot to relax after a day of activities. Or just because you want to ;)
