Cruise Curacao

Tourists and locals in Bonaire love to shop, party and diner in Curacao. Enjoying the Caribbean seas and sailing, the best transportation is an ocean going 50ft racing yacht: safe, secure and fast. Entering and leaving Willemstad is as well as charming as romantic. Passing the famous Queen Emma ‘Pondjesbrug’ and the 60-meter-high Juliana Bridge, followed by sailing through the port and mooring in Curacao Marine, in the city bowl. Really, a lifetime experience!

Bonaire

Bonaire
Bonaire

Bonaire, an island municipality of the Netherlands, lies off the Venezuela’s coast in the southern Caribbean seas. Its reef-lined coast with beaches, lagoons, caverns and desert-like hills is protected by Bonaire National Marine Park. Beyond its rich marine life, the island shelters lizards, donkeys and a wide variety of birds within especially the Washington Slagbaai National Park.

Curaçao

Willemstad Curaçao
Willemstad Curaçao

Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean island, is known for its beaches tucked into coves and its expansive coral reefs rich with marine life. The capital, Willemstad, is known by pastel-colored colonial architecture, the floating Queen Emma Bridge and the sand-floored, 17th-century Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue. It’s also a gateway to western beaches like Blue Bay, a popular diving site.

The Queen Emma Bridge connects Punda (‘City’) to Otrabanda (‘Other side’) and is the only floating bridge in the world. At night the bridge changes into a colorful scenery.

Punda is more touristic: there are cafes, restaurants, general stores, souvenir shops, etc. and the overall architecture looks modern and maintained. A nice feature is the Handelskade, with some colorful buildings in an ‘Amsterdam Grachten Huis’ style

A more authentic side of Curacao is Otrabanda with the Rif Ford on the waterside. The Ford is a historical building and one of the best places in town to enjoy lunch or dinner.
