Christoffel National Park is the largest national park of Curaçao and a must see for everyone. The park has a rich variety of local flora and fauna. Nature lovers will find the park teeming with local birds and plants, including species, which are not easily seen elsewhere on the island.
Punda, otherwise known as “The Point” has a long and interesting history in the formation of Willemstad. As the first settlement of the Dutch on Curaçao, and the first seat of government on the island, the neighborhood is awash in echoes of continual transformation. Once the nexus of the rich and powerful, the hub of commerce, and the bastion of social activity, it was the most highly guarded region of the island, flanked by two forts and three walls.
Located on the east side of the Saint Anna Bay in Willemstad, this fortification dates back to 1635. Strategically located, the fort overlooks the entry into the harbor and protects the city.
Fort Beekenburg located at Caracas Bay, overlooks the inner bay of the "Spanish Waters". Caracas Bay was one of the few places where 'enemies' could make landfall in an attempt to capture Willemstad.
Situated high upon a hill at the harbor’s entrance, Fort Nassau has a beautiful 360 degree view over part of the island and the city of Willemstad with the unique bridges that connect Punda and Otrobanda. At night a sea of lights stretches to the horizon offering a most spectacular view.
