Best Places to Visit in Curaçao

Curaçao is a Lesser Antilles island in the southern Caribbean Sea and the Dutch Caribbean region, about 65 km (40 mi) north of the Venezuelan coast. It is a constituent country (Dutch: land) of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and a unique Caribbean island paradise. Curaçao's highest point is the Sint Christoffelberg 372 m (1,220 ft).
The coastlines bays, inlets and hot springs offer an on-site source of natural mineral, thermal, or seawater used in hydrotherapy and mesotherapy, making this island one of many balneoclimateric areas in the region. While tourism plays a major role in Curaçao's economy, it is less reliant on tourism than other Caribbean countries. Most tourists originate from the Netherlands, Eastern United States, South America and other Caribbean Islands . It is a leader in the Caribbean in cruise tourism .

Ringed by picture-perfect beaches and craggy headlands clad in the occasional bloom of palms and sea grasses, spiny cacti and divi-divi groves, the terrain isn’t your usual soft sands and jungle.

There IS really plenty to see on the sun-kissed Curaçao! Check it out…

Netherlands Antilles Travel

Netherlands Antilles Travel - The Netherlands Antilles, previously known as the Netherlands West Indies or Dutch Antilles/West Indies, consists of two groups of islands that form part of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. The islands are Curaçao and Bonaire, which are just off the Venezuelan coast and belong to the Leeward Antilles; and Sint Eustatius, Saba and Sint Maarten, which are located southeast of the Virgin Islands and are part of the Leeward Islands. These Dutch islands form an autonomous part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The islands economy depends mostly upon tourism, international financial services, international commerce, shipping, and petroleum.

The Netherlands Antilles are scheduled to be dissolved as a unified political entity on October 10, 2010, so that the five constituent islands will attain new constitutional statuses within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. ( source Wikipedia )

Manera  un estatua na su luga elegi
Like a statue in its chosen place
Un monumento ku refleho pa  éternidat
A monument eternally reflecting
Ta ekstende poder di su balor
Extending the power of its value
Den rosea dje pueblo su alma
Through the breath of its peoples' souls

Chorus:
Ami ta korsou, mi ta banda ariba I mi ta banda abou, ami ta korsou
I am Curaçao, I am the East side and the West, I am Curaçao
Ami ta korsou, un kurason chiki meimei di mundu
I am Curaçao, a small heart in the center of the world
Si abo ta korsou, no ta importa si bo ta hel of blou si bo ta korsou
If you're Curaçao, it doesn't matter whether you are yellow or blue
Si abo ta korsou, bo tambe tin un luga spesial den e mundu
If you're Curaçao, you too occupy a special place in the world

6 Fun Things to Do in Curacao

Curacao is a Dutch Caribbean island that’s rich in biodiversity. Although the island is home to less than 150,000 residents, Curacao is rich in culture as well. More than 50 nationalities live here, each adding their own traditions and customs into the melting pot. So which cultural attractions and must-do activities need to be on your itinerary? Glad you asked. Here are my top 6 picks for things to do on the Southern Caribbean island of Curacao.

6. Browse the Floating Market

Vendors set sail from Venezuela, some 40 miles south, with their boats full of produce and goods. They hope to fetch better prices for their wares at Willemstad’s Floating Market and can stay for up to three months at a time. This tradition has been passed down for generations but is currently threatened by trends in globalization.

5. Party at the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival

Music industry icons from Prince and Janelle Monae to Rod Stewart and Bruno Mars have graced the stages of the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival. This year’s event is slated for Sept. 1-3 at the World Trade Center in Piscadera Bay. While the full line up has yet to be announced, Dominican singer-songwriter Juan Luis Guerra and Guadeloupe’s hometown heroes, Kassav, will sing their hearts out underneath the stars.

4. Chill at a Beach Bar

Drinking is an unofficial sport in Curacao. Be a champion and head to one of the island’s many beach bars for sun, sand and ice-cold beverages. My favorite beach bars on Curacao: Hemingway Beach Club (try the ice-blended mojito) and the Saint Tropez Oceanclub for sexy sunset cocktails.

3. Hike Shete Boka

Located on Curacao’s north coast, Shete Boka is one of the islands most dynamic attractions with miles of hiking trails and walking paths to choose from. Be sure to make time for Boka Pistol, one of several inlets or “bokas” located within the national park.

2. Visit Curacao’s Jewish Synagogue

Operational since the 1700s, the Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue is the oldest surviving synagogue in the Western Hemisphere. It’s also one of five synagogues in the world featuring a floor made out of sand.

1. Go Flyboarding

Flyboarding at Jan Thiel Beach is probably the most surreal experience you can have while vacationing on Curacao. It’s remarkably easy to learn, and your instructor treats you to a complimentary beer afterward. Curacao, I like your style.

Willemstad, Curacao

Pietermaai:

Since the year 2000 It has undergone a major metamorphosis. Most of the 200-year-old mansions and worker houses, being monuments, have been renovated. They have been restored into their original state and transformed into idyllic restaurants, hotels, apartments & suites, which are now occupied by permanent residents, tourists & students.
Pietermaai District’s allure draws business men, artists, students and travellers alike. Fondly referred to as the SoHo of Curaçao, its stunning architecture is likely to catch one’s eye. Boutique hotels, small shops, cozy little cafés and top-rated restaurants snuggled together, makes the neighborhood highly walkable and perfect for exploring at your leisure. It’s a neighborhood full of mystery, magic and fun.

The quaint neighborhood of Pietermaai District is located just a stone’s throw away from the city center Willemstad. The district covers an impressive, yet walkable, area stretching from The Movies at Plaza Mundo Merced to the rows of bars along Pietermaai and the restaurants at Johan van Walbeeckplein all the way to Avila Hotel in Penstraat.

Plaza Bieu:

Plasa Bieu, or Plaza Bieu is situated in the heart of Punda, in Willemstad. The place to find krioyo soul cooking; a wide range of local dishes. The six different operators located in Plasa Bieu are: Yvonne di Plasa, Chichi di Plasa, Grasia di Dios, Fung’s Kitchen, Kushina di Rignald and Zus di Plasa. Punda’s Cafetaria, also known as Marché Bieu: Old Market.

Floating Market of Willemstad:

Located along the water in the trendy Punda district, every morning starting at 6:30 AM boats from Venezuela arrive full of fruits, vegetables and even fish to sell at the bustling floating market. Even if you’re not interested in buying anything, a visit to this colorful market is a fun way to pass some time; the merchants are arranged in a well-honed pattern along the water and the fruits are at once gorgeous to behold and mysterious in their origins.

Handleskade:

The Handelskade is a famous location on Curacao. It is depicted in many paintings, photos and postcards. Rightfully so, because it’s a fantastic sight. Whether you look at it from the Queen Juliana Bridge or you go for a relaxing stroll on the Handelskade itself (there’s plenty to see and do), the Handelskade is definitely a must-see when you’re on Curacao.

Punda:

The vibrant pedestrian-only streets create a picturesque atmosphere with many shops, café’s and terraces conveniently located in one area.Walking in one of the most beautiful inner cities of the world, you can find some of the best photo opportunities.

Punda’s quaint streets and alleys, full of life and color, lead you to some of the best shopping on the island. Stores in Punda offer a variety of jewelry, electronics, cosmetics, women and men's fashion and local souvenirs. Relax on one of the many café’s and terraces enjoying breakfast, lunch, dinner or a refreshing cocktail! Punda hosts its famous Punda Vibes every Thursday night.

CURACAO ISLAND BEACH TOUR! 🌤🌴 Blue water, beach pigs and cliff jumping.

We spent a day touring around the west side of Curacao to visit multiple beaches and sites on the west side of the island with Irie Tours. This is the perfect tour for you if you don’t want to rent a car and want an affordable and fun tour company to take you around the island. We started at Shete Boka National Park to see the incredible waves! We then went to Playa Piskadó where the fisherman bring their catch. There are also many snorkelers here. Next up we went just up the road to go cliff jumping in the crystal clear water. After that we go to visit one of the best beaches on the island, Grote Knip where we went swimming. Lastly we headed to Playa Porto Marie to have some lunch and lounge on the beach, where we also encounter some beach pigs!

Shete Boka Park:
This is an area adjoining the Christoffelpark covering more than 10 kilometers of the rocky wave-exposed north coast of the island and with some 10 pocket beaches where 3 species of sea turtles are known to lay eggs. The most well-known and favorite inlet for visitors is Boka Tabla. If you enjoy getting off the beaten track and into rugged countryside, you will love National Park Shete Boka. The park begins at stunning Boka Tabla, where huge waves thunder into an underground cavern. Steps cut into the rocks lead you directly into the mouth of the cavern; you can sit on the very edge and watch the surf roll in. After you peek inside the cavern you can walk along the limestone bluffs above for a spectacular view of Curacao's rugged north coast.

Playa Piskadó:
This tiny fishermen's beach is also popular for snorkeling and diving and has some good photo ops of the boats and nets. Manchineel trees provide some shade. A small snack bar is open on the weekend. Entrance to the water is somewhat rocky.

Grote Knip:
Grote Knip (also called Playa Abou in Papiamento, translation: Beach in a valley) is a beach on the Caribbean island of Curaçao, located at the western side of the island, between the villages of Westpunt and Lagun. The beach gives way to a small lagune between high rocks. It is freely accessible to the public. The beach is used as a starting point for snorkeling, due to the presence of a coral reef nearby.

Playa Porto Mari:
Playa PortoMari is a beautiful sandy bay to be found on the private estate of Plantages PortoMari at the west coast of the tropical island of Curacao (in the Caribbean). Its white coral sand beach with clear and calm water is a true paradise for water lovers. The unique ‘double reef’ is easily accesible from the shore providing a fascinating snorkel and dive site. For landlubbers, three nature trails (the Seru Matteo Trail, the History Trail and the Bird Trail) have their starting point at the beach’s parking lot. They are ideal for hiking but can also be conquered by mountain bike.

7 reasons why Curacao should be your next Caribbean vacation.
