Curacao is a long, arid, and generally flat island, stretching some 40 miles (64 km) from southeast to northwest, at much the same north-south angles as it's sister islands in the ABC group (Aruba to the west and Bonaire to the east). The island is about 10 miles (16 km) at it's widest point, and the area is about 180 square miles (472 square km), making it the largest island of the Dutch Caribbean islands.

The island has many sights and attractions, we selected the finest for you. It all starts near the airport: "Hato Caves", the caves, gouged out of limestone cliffs ages ago as the island emerged from the sea, are still forming, albeit by one drop at a time. You will see water dripping from the walls and massive stalactites that hang from the ceiling.

We get a lot of questions regarding transportation possibilities on Curacao. "Should we rent a car?", or "Is public transport on Curacao safe and reliable?", "Are taxis easy to take and are they expensive?", please check our "Getting Around - Transportation" webpage.
Curacao's beaches are its best-kept secret. The best beaches are not the long, expansive patches of sand found in other islands, but rather smaller, more intimate beaches found in secluded inlets, called "bocas" in Papiamenzuidkust.
Curacao was born millions of years ago, developing under the sea from lava rock on which coral has grown for centuries. For millions of years reefs have surrounded the island, attaching to the shore like a narrow fringe. In some places they are like beautiful gardens, with delicate corals and are home to brightly coloured tropical fish. In others, massive coral formations extend into depths with deep-water fish patrolling the plunging walls. It is no wonder that diving is one of the most popular sports on Curacao!
