How to spend a perfect day on Curacao? With this Top 3 you will have a day to remember. Starting at the North sea side, than visiting Christoffel National Park and finish your day in Willemstad to see the Queen Emma Bridge.
Covering an area of 10 km (6.2 miles) of rocky, wave-exposed coastline, this is since 1994 a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. Watch the crashing waves disappear into the underground cavern. There are two famous hiking trails.
Boka Pistol Trail: which includes a 1 hour walk leading through Boka Brown where sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs, Boka Pistol where huge waves burst into the sky with gunfire like explosions and panoramic overviews from the flat limestone hills.
Boka Wandomi Trail: which is a 1 hour walk along rolling lava hills down to Boka Wandomi and the limestone bluffs to a natural bridge. A short walk along the rugged north coast will bring you back to Boka Tabla.
Christoffel National Park is a 4,500-acre wildlife preserve on the largely undeveloped west side of Curaçao island. The park has a rich variety of local flora and fauna. There are local birds and plants, including species, such as the wild orchids, the Palabrua, the rare native barn owl, the Curacao White Tailed deer and much more.
Queen Emma Bridge, also known as “The Swinging Old Lady” in Willemstad, is a floating pontoon bridge that links the “Punda” (Point Side) and the “Otrobanda” (Other Side) of the Willemstad across the Sint Annabaai Channel. You get to see the bridge open and close to away marine traffic into St. Anna Bay. In the event the bridge is open for a prolonged time, there is a ferry service across the channel as well.
