Willemstad accommodation – Take a relaxing holiday in the capital of Curacao
Located in the southern Caribbean, the island of Curacao, a part of the Netherlands Antilles, is an unspoilt tourist paradise and is a superb place to choose self-catering accommodation.
The island's capital Willemstad is the major urban centre, and has most of the self-catering villas and apartments. Anyone renting holiday apartments in Willemstad will have plenty to do.
Rent a property in the hills surrounding the capital city and you can easily reach the charming old town district. Visit the imposing site of Fort Amsterdam or tour the fascinating Maritime Museum. After seeing the sights, those renting Willemstad accommodation can grab a bite to eat in one of the many cafés and restaurants around the vibrant city market, and let the tropical evenings pass by with a cocktail in hand.
Holiday apartments in Willemstad are a great way to open up the rest of Curacao and nearby islands for exploration. From the city you can arrange scuba diving tours to the spectacular reefs near Willemstad accommodation, where shoals of colourful fish weave through beautiful coral formations. The nearby islands of Aruba and Bonaire also are not far away, so why not make the most of your holiday and visit?
There are also many pure sandy beaches to relax on. You can reach many of the more remote western beaches via all-terrain vehicle tours, with the assistance of local guides who know every nook and cranny of this stunning island. Be sure to check out the stunning Porto Mari beach in Willibrordus.
Willemstad accommodation offers more than beaches and diving. Take a sailing course and glide across the Caribbean, play golf at the Old Quarry or rent jet skis for a great adrenaline rush.
