Colourful and lively Curaçao is home to more than 35 captivating beaches, a diverse heritage spanning 55 different cultures, including Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese, a ‘live and let live’ attitude, and unrivalled European architecture.
One of the World’s Most Romantic Islands
Recently selected as one of Budget Travel’s ’10 Most Romantic Islands in the World,’ Curaçao’s natural beauty, world class diving and snorkeling sites are also a favourite with divers and adventure travelers, and its stunning beaches and idyllic weather, situated on the outer fringes of the Hurricane Belt, has won it further accolade and recognition.
A Wonderland Of Aquatic Possibilities
Divers and snorkelers never seem to be able to stop talking about the beauty of Curaçao’s underwater world – and with good reason. There’s no place in the world offering such great shore dives or opportunities to enjoy the beauty of the sea. There are over 40 different dive areas covering over 65 individual sites on the island.
A World Heritage Site
Curaçao’s capital city, Willemstad is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It features an iconic colourful Handelskade backdrop, an eclectic roster of museums, monuments, flavourful restaurants and shopping. Willemstad is one of the many reasons why Curaçao continues to flourish as one of the most exceptional islands in the Caribbean. A highlight is the Mikve-Israel Emanuel Synagogue, the Western Hemisphere’s oldest synagogue in continuous use.
The Historic Area of Willemstad Inner City and Harbour (with over 750 sites and monuments) was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997.
