Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Grote Knip

Grote Knip is another excellent beach for the whole family. The kick-out for the diver is a little far, but if you take your time, and enjoy the scenery, you'll be at the reef edge before you know it! 4.3 km South of the Northernmost village of Westpunt, turn at the intersection below.

Grote Knip is a challenging dive spot in that there are many steps to carry gear down and then it is a looong swim out the reef. The beach was busy even though the bar/restaurant was closed while we were there. So no charge for access but no baths rooms or dunk tanks either. There is chair rental when they are open at $4. Very pretty beach with high cliffs surrounding the beach for a very calm ocean. No surf or current to speak of inside the cove. Barracuda, eels, crab, lobster here hanging out while we were there. Like the beach very much but the swim out and stairs left a little to be desired.
