Car: Recommended

The handelskade waterfront nettled above the santa ana bay. This area is unique and in the heart of the town. Here you’ll find open markets, restaurants, tourist attractions, night life and other establishments all within walking distance.

Here are a few places we recommend to sight see.

Punda is the main shopping area of willemstad. The pedestrian-only streets create a picturesque atmosphere with many shops conveniently located in one area.

The queen emma bridge is a floating pontoon bridge, which swings perpendicular across the harbor and opens and closes so ships can pass through. This bridge has been nominated for the 8th wonder of the world.

The queen juliana bridge is a 1,625-foot-long bridge and stands 200 feet above the water. It's the highest bridge in the caribbean and affords breathtaking views of the city, day and night.

Around the corner from our location is where you’ll find the floating markets, boats from venezuela and colombia bring in a colorful smorgasbord of fruits, vegetables and the day’s fresh catch.

Next to the venezuelan floating fruit market, you can book a motor cruise eastwards on the insulinde with captain phil and his crew. He’ll take you on a 3-hour cruise along the coast where you can snorkel over the famous sunken tugboat wreck lying in 14 feet (4m) water depth. This wreck is curacao's finest snorkel attraction.

The curaçao maritime museum takes visitors on a discovery tour of more then 500 years of maritime history of curaçao.

The kura hulanda museum boasts a size-able collection of african art – one of the largest in the caribbean.

The mikve israel-emanuel synagogue, is the oldest synagogue still in use in the new world. There is a jewish historical museum on the property, occupying two buildings that date to 1728. You'll find artifacts like a torah scroll, brought to the island by the first jewish settlers, and hand-wrought, centuries-old silver items once used in religious ceremonies.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I have always loved visiting the Island of Curacao. It has become my favorite place in the world. My parents are originally from Curacao and I visit here often. So when an opportunity came along for me to purchase a home on the famous Handelskade waterfront, I jumped at the opportunity to be part of this World Unesco Heritage site.

Why the Owner Chose Willemstad:
What I love about this property is that it is in the center of town overlooking the Santa Ana Bay. I enjoy the water, but not big on soaking in the sun all day. I like the country, but I'm more of a city person and rather be around people and a lively environment, yet have my privacy at the same time. This property gives me all this and more.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Here I am so close to everything. I can walk to stores, cafes, take in a movie at the theater, watch the ships sail from my balcony, go to the museum, restaurants, check out the live bands on the waterfront or even go clubbing at night and not have to drive anywhere.
