What to Do in Curaçao: 5 Unique Local Experiences to Have

Omaily for Wander Curaçao


Memories are created when simple moments touch your heart. In the years that I lived on the island and the other years where I missed Curaçao, I came to pinpoint those beautiful moments that make this island steal mine and many people’s heart. 

I often get the question of what to do in Curaçao. So, what to do in Curaçao? This is what you should do.

Beach Hopping

Number one on the list of what to do in Curaçao is beach-hopping. One of the coolest activities I do with visitors from abroad is going beach-hopping. I place a cooler in my trunk with ice and refreshing beers, some munchies for on the road, and a happy playlist to set us in the mood. Geared up with our swim shoes and snorkel we travel along the west coast, starting at Westpunt, and take a plunge at every accessible free beach we find on the way. This way we get to experience every beach and my visitors get a brief introduction to what every beach offers.

Sunset Dinner

One of the great things about Curaçao, aside from the beaches, is the fact that you can experience a beautiful sunrise and sunset. Choose a restaurant on the West coast with a clear sight on the horizon. Our favorite is Koraal Rooftop or Karakter. Not only do they offer delicious food and cocktail, but they the sunset provides the perfect backdrop to end your day on a tropical island. If you don’t want to drive all the way to the other side of the island, then Jan Thiel will also provide the beautiful sight with the same good food.
