Things to do - general

Curacao is an elongated, dry and slightly hilly island. It measures about 64 kilometres from north to south, and is situated between the other ABC-islands, Aruba on the west side and Bonaire on the east side. On its widest point, Curacao is 16 kilometres wide. With 472 square kilometres, Curacao is the largest of the Leeward Islands.

The north coast of Curacao is rough and rocky. Along the south coast are golden beaches, eleven kilometres long in total, in the wind shade of the island itself. Curacao has public roads. They are in decent quality and marked. You will not get lost but that is in any case difficult on an island where the coast is never more than 8 kilometres away. The south coast consists of bays and coves and long beaches on the west side. However, the largest bay is located on the south-east side of Willemstad, the capital and the main port of the island. The majority of Curacao’s 150,000 inhabitants lives here.

On the north coast there is a constant, strong wind. The coastline with limestone rock formations on a surface of volcanic rock is furious and wild. Here you can find some small villages interspersed with cottages of the old plantations. The western point of the island consists of extensive hilly terrain that for a large part belongs to the Christoffel Park. This National Park covers 1,820 hectares and includes Mount Christoffel, with 377 metres Curacao’s highest point. The eastern tip of the Island is flat and barren with some small paths which lead to small coves. With an average rainfall of 510 mm per year,
Curacao is a dry and sunny island, the temperature is almost every dag 30 c.
