Groot Knip - Curaçao
Groot Knip

Groot Knip is one of the nicest beaches on Curacao. It's a nice sandy stretch of sand, one of the few natural beaches on the island.
There are a few parasol there to give you shade and some food vendors so you won't have to starve. The place gets very busy during the weekend.

Punda Waterfront - Curaçao

Punda Waterfront

Walk around Willemstad

Curacao's capital was found in 1634 just after the Dutch took over the island. It's situated on both sides of a canal leading to the natural harbour of St. Anabaai.
The Dutch traders built houses copying those of their homecountry and these days Willemstad is also called "Little Amsterdam".
As it is a UNESCO heritage site, lots of money goes to the restoration of the historical building. They're doing a great job!
