Surroundings of Aquila Apartments


The apartment complex is located in Willemstad. The center of Willemstad is worthwhile a relaxing stroll, the center has been placed on the World Heritage list of UNESCO.

 

Along the center in Punda & Otrobanda, and all over Curacao, there are many renovated buildings, including harbour houses, agricultural and colonial estates, all worth a visit. Many of the old "landhuizen" (agricultural estates) are converted into restaurants, providing excellent food and live entertainment.

 

Along the harbour, where gigantic cruise ships pass by, the many terraces are an ideal location to relax, have a cold drink or lunch and enjoy the views over the harbour entrance.

 

The world famous "Pontjesbrug", a floating bridge that can be moved like a boat, is also worthwhile a visit. Take a stroll over the bridge, and when the bridge is opened to give harbour access to a sea vessel, take the free ferry boat back.

 

       

 

 

 

 

 

A couple of minutes drive take you from Aquila Apartments to the beautiful beaches in the south as Barbara Beach, Caracas Bay, Jan Thiel Bay, Spanish Water Lagoon and the famous Mambo Beach. Close to Mambo Beach is the Seaquarium, where a large variety of sea animals, including dolphins, can be seen. The south coast of Curacao has over 35 beaches and bays that can be accessed for relaxation or swimming.
The rough northern coast is less accessible. The ever present northern wind creates a rather rough and less inhabited coast but has the beautiful scenery of Boca Tabla, where the waves from the ocean splash roughly against the cliffs.

        

 

Further away, to the west of Willemstad, there are many other beaches along the south coast. The complete southern coast is covered with excellent diving opportunities. Many dive operators take divers to the best sites. To the north-west, the Christoffelpark, a large protected natural park, is worth visiting. The park is a nice area for mountain biking, horse riding, or simply have a relaxed stroll through the natural scenery.
