Willemstad is the capital of Curacao as well as the city center of the island. Divided by the Sint Anna Bay and connected by a remarkable pontoon bridge, are the areas Punda and Otrobanda. Besides the many gorgeous beaches, these areas are the most memorable for tourists because of its many colorful buildings. From monuments to businesses and houses, it’s nothing short of a rainbow party! In today’s post I’m giving you an inside look of what it’s like to walk around in Willemstad. A photographer, blogger or anybody that’s into architecture would certainly appreciate a visit to Willemstad Curacao!
I love walking around in Willemstad because there are so many “hidden” alleys that I’m sure even some locals don’t really know about. It’s just delightful to see all these modern buildings that have a cultural twist. And whenever there’s a cruise ship or two (it happens so often) there are tons of curious tourists admiring the city. I myself felt like a tourist a couple of days ago when we took these pictures haha. Check all the vibrant Willemstad photos below.
If these pictures don’t give you a serious case of wanderlust to visit Willemstad Curacao, I don’t know what will! Let me know in the comments which colorful building was your favorite.
