Sun, swimming and diving
Curaçao is the perfect sun and swimming destination with an average temperature of around 27 degrees, both in the air and in the water. The coast is bordered by a string of pearls of small white and well-kept beaches. There are fantastic opportunities for diving and snorkeling, and here anyone who wants can even swim with dolphins. There are many nice restaurants and you just have to choose “kitchen” – here food is served from all over the world, from African and Arabic to Italian and Indonesian. In the evenings you can have fun at one of the island’s bars and nightclubs.

Here you will find a mix of old and new – some buildings are in a classic colonial style, others have a more contemporary design and have a modern, minimalist design.
