What to Do
Located just eight miles off the southeast coast of Curaçao, sits the abandoned 1.2-square-mile island, Klein (Little) Curaçao. A daytrip to the island will fulfill every scuba diver and sun-loving traveler’s daytrip dreams. The uninhabited island offers a stunning stretch of white-sand beach, fun marine life, coral reefs and so much history--from its crumbling (but, functional) lighthouse from the 1800s to several shipwreck sites along the shores.
Colonial Dutch Heritage
It isn’t every day you get to experience colonial Dutch heritage in the Caribbean... Historic Willemstad is the capital city of Curaçao and is best known for its vibrant architecture, history and delicious Dutch and Afro-Caribbean cuisine. The most iconic point in town is the stunning Handelskade—the colorful waterfront strip that’s lined with 18th century buildings, outdoor cafes and the best views of St. Anna Bay.
This one’s for all nature-enthusiasts and adventurers out there. One of the best ways to explore a new destination is through its national parks! Curaçao’s Shete Boka and Christoffel National Parks offer travelers endless opportunities for adventure and getting to know the island from its roots—literally! Take a hike, hop on a safari, discover the most stunning coastline and so much more!
