Finally, time for the long-desired vacation together with your loved one has come, a Caribbean vacation is an excellent pick for a romantic getaway and the gorgeous island of Curaçao definitely delivers for vacationing couples.
Check a list of things to do with your partner while visiting Curaçao.
Visit to the Beaches
Curacao is one of the special places in the Caribbean where isolated beaches are among the major attractions, particularly in the north and west. It’s possible to go to one of the secluded coves with a partner and not have to share your beach experience with anyone else… unless that’s what you’re into. Curacao’s beaches vary in size and location; some can be walked to from hotels while others can only be reached by boat. It’s up to you to determine how secretive you want it.
Drinks Along the Punda Waterfront
Historic Willemstad’s most well-known buildings are along the harbor area called Punda, drawing a mix of tourists and locals in one of the busiest attractions of the city. Stop for cocktails or a meal along the water at the Iguana Café (recognizable from across the harbor by its bright yellow umbrellas). The views are some of the best in the city, and the staff happily speaks English, Dutch, Spanish, and of course the native Papiamentu. Prices are listed in both dollars and guilders, which is helpful; but if you pay with one, be prepared for the possibility of receiving change in the other.
Fort NassauDinner at Fort Nassau Built to protect Willemstad from a distance, this hilltop fort is now home to one of the most panoramic views in Curacao. The entire bay and most of the city are visible, along with hilly terrain in the distance. Plentiful inside seating is available, but opt to dine at one of the tables along the fort’s edge; the breezes and views can’t be beat. Standouts include shrimp scampi, steaks and (of course) cocktails with Blue Curacao.
Snorkel & Scuba DivingA Snorkeling / Scuba Trip Curacao is a diver’s paradise, with untouched reefs and extraordinary wildlife all around the island. Operators such as Explore Curacao can take couples or groups out on boats to experience all kinds of dives -– caves, shipwrecks, and more. A day’s dive comes with fresh fruit, the occasional beer, and perhaps a curious spinner dolphin sighting for the lucky.
