Things to do and Places to visit in Curacao

Curacao is famous for its beaches, snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing, water skiing or just a lazy swim.

Its beaches consist of white sand with calm and incredibly blue waters filled with neon-yellow fish, flame-bright coral reefs and billowing rainbow-colored sails. They are considered to be some of the best beaches in the world.

Curacao has an array of interesting spots to visit including: Our pontoon bridge that connects Punda with Otrobanda, Christoffel National Park, Shete Boka, The caves of Hato, Aloe vera plantation, little Curacao, Kura Hulanda museum, diving, Swim with dolfins.

Punda – Otrobanda

Queen Emma, or also known as the "Swinging Old Lady," is a floating pedestrian bridge that connects Willemstad's two halves, Punda and Otrobanda. Built in 1888, the Queen Emma Bridge is supported by 16 pontoon boats and swings open laterally to allow ships to enter and leave the bay.

National Christoffel park

Het Christoffelpark, 2300 hectare groot, is het grootste natuurpark van Curacao. Het park is in 1978 officieel opgericht en bestaat uit 3 voormalige plantages: Plantage Savonet, Plantage Zorgvlied en Plantage Zevenbergen en het heuvellandschap Jeremi.

Shete Boka

Naast de grootste national park van Curacao, Christoffelpark, grenst het nationale park Shete Boka ('vertaald: zeven inhammen of baaien') dat is opgericht in 1994, en ongeveer ca. 200 hectare groot is. De kustlijn is meer dan 10 km lang en heeft diverse baaien en inhammen waar diverse soorten schildpadden hun eieren leggen. Één van de bekendste attractie van het park is Boka Tabla, een grot die van één zijde vanaf land toegankelijk is, en waar aan de andere zijde de opgestuwde zee naar binnen stroomt.

The Hato caves

The Hato Caves is located on the nor th side of the island and only two minutes from the International Airport of Curacao. The Hato Caves being more then 200.000 years old is the biggest and most prominent cave on the island. Since 1991 the Hato Caves were opened officially to the public after undergoing an intensive upgrading by the Government to make it accessible by foot. Nowadays the Hato Caves can be considered the most beautiful and public friendly cave of the island.

Aloe Vera plantation

The plantation covers 10 hectares of land full of Aloe Vera plants. At the plantation is a shop where all 22 products with the special pure Aloe Vera gel are for sale. You can also have a drink on the terrace under the palapa with a beautiful view of the plantation. If there is a production day, the production process can be observed up close, which is an impressive process.

Little Curacao

A largely uninhabited island about 15 miles off the southeast coast of Curaçao, Klein Curaçao is the ideal daytrip for snorkelers, scuba divers and sun-worshippers. You will notice a few signs of Klein Curaçao's former residents – like its crumbling, but functional lighthouse – but the tiny island's natural elements are the main reason for visiting. There are allot of boat charters that go to Little Curacao.

Kura Hulanda museum

This is by far the most intriguing museum on Curacao and perhaps the entire Dutch Caribbean. To call this a ‘slavery museum’, as many guidebooks do, is to only scratch the surface. Slavery plays a very important role here, but there is much more to see. Take at least three hours to see the whole complex, which seems to continue, on and on from rooms to huts to courtyards and back again.

Diving

Like its neighbors, Aruba and Bonaire, Curacao is home to plentiful diving opportunities. This Caribbean island features amazing coral reefs, walls and sunken ships. The island’s dive sites are protected from strong currents, there is little river runoff to hinder visibility and the waters are warm year-round, making this is a great place for those just blowing their first bubbles or learning a new skill.

Dolfin swim at the Dolfin Academy

Enjoy the unique and intimate experience of genuine interaction while swimming with dolphins in their natural lagoon. Requiring only the most basic of swimming skills, you will be joined by dolphins who enjoy your attention and gentle petting. You will also be instructed on how to initiate trained behaviors of the dolphins through various signals. Your time in the water is approximately 30 minutes. The whole experience will be about 1,5 hour.
