Punda's Breedestraat and Otrobanda's Breedestraat are main shopping thoroughfares, likely to be crowded with tourists and cruise ship passengers most any time of the day. The road is partially blocked off for pedestrian traffic. The shopping is not duty-free, but is "duty-relaxed", meaning the shopkeepers pay low duty. And since there is a low sales tax on Curacao, you should be able to get some fairly good deals. You'll also find an array of shops on the Punda side, particularly at the Waterfort Arches on the harborfront. Many town shops also have branches in hotels around the island.
Mambo Beach Boulevard, BLVD, is an unique concept for the island of Curacao. A strip that combines shopping, dining, entertainment and the best beach the island has to offer. The BLVD truly is the new ‘anytime’ destination! There will always be something to see or do when you visit the BLVD.
Promenade Shopping Center is located just 10 minutes from Willemstad downtown hotels, nearby resorts and cruise terminal. At the Promenade, you will find it all - there are 28 modern and attractive stores offering great collections of quality merchandize, mostly from Europe, with world famous brands.
