Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean island, is known for its beaches tucked into coves and its expansive coral reefs rich with marine life. The capital, Willemstad, has pastel-colored colonial architecture, floating Queen Emma Bridge and the sand-floored, 17th-century Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue. It’s also a gateway to western beaches like Blue Bay, a popular diving site.
We organized and hosted our 2015 Annual King Dunston Getaway group trip to Curaçao with a group of 50 travelers. We stayed at the Hilton Curaçao Beach Resort in Willemstad. We enjoyed water sports and sunset cruising on the beautiful beach and explored Willemstad, including the Watamula Hole, Curaçao Liquor Distillery and Queen Wilhelmina Park; where you can take pictures with the “Curaçao” and “Dushi” signs.
