Be sure to have your camera ready for breathtaking scenery and fascinating landmarks on this Curacao Sightseeing and Beach Cruise Excursion. Meet your English speaking excursion guide by your Willemstad Curacao cruise terminal and head onto your air-conditioned transport. Your guide will be giving you interesting information, history, and local stories not only about Curacao but also the sights you will see and those you will stop at.
Your Curacao Ultimate East to West Sightseeing and Beach Excursion first takes you past the picturesque Spanish Water (Curacao Bay) where the Spaniards discovered Curacao back in 1499 and a scenic overlook at Table Mountain. There will be a stop nearby for some handcrafted souvenir shopping.
Enjoy a stop at the Curacao Liqueur Factory where the authentic liqueur is made with Laraha (a derivative of Valencia oranges). Browse or make a purchase! Take in the areas of Punda and Orobanda, located in the island's capital. View the arched lighted bridge and picturesque brightly painted buildings and homes.
See Fort Amsterdam, originally built in the 1630s that also has the old Fort Church in the back of it. You will pass through Scharloo, a Jewish residential area in the city center that dates back to the 1700's which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The beautifully restored mansions are stunning. Take in the views from the Floating Market, one of the island's most well-known sights. Boats pull up to the pier and offer fresh produce, fish and more.
Visit Shete Boka Park and view Boca Tabla, a cave that the pounding surf carved out of the stone. Standing inside the cave you can hear the surf roll in and observe the surrounding nature. See the waves crash against the rocks and possibly spy one of the blowholes.
There is an excursion stop for lunch where fresh fish and other island specialties are available at an additional cost. One of the noted items available is stewed iguana...see for yourself if it tastes just like chicken! (approximate prices $20-28.00 USD with all taxes). Enjoy this unique dining experience with the very entertaining owner! There is no menu...the owner will walk to your table and "announce" the choices.
The next stop on your Sightseeing and Beach Cruise Excursion from Willemstad is at the first plantation house built on the island in 1650 by Jan Kok. The plantation's salt flats are now the habitat for a large flock of resident flamingos. Bring your camera and binoculars for a real up-close look.
Finally, you will head to Knip Beach (also known as Kenepa Beach) where you will have a short beach break to stroll the white sandy beach, relax under a shady tree or bring your snorkel gear and enjoy the crystal clear water. View the marine life such as parrotfish, sea turtles and colorful coral. Guests will have approximately 1 hour at Knip Beach. All other shore excursion stops are approximately 30 minutes.There is a small snack bar and restroom at the beach but amenities are bare.
At the end of your guided day excursion in Curacao, your air-conditioned transportation will take you back to your Willemstad Curacao cruise pier.
