Continuing our Spotlight series, we’re taking a look at the beautiful island of Curaçao which will be represented at our Fashion Player Awards.
When choosing a Caribbean destination for an outdoor adventure, it’s easy to think that one island is just like any other. But with more than 35 captivating cove beaches, a diverse heritage spanning 55 different cultures, a “live and let live” attitude, and unrivalled traditional European architecture, Curaçao sets itself apart from the rest as an island to be explored.
Ideal for insatiable curiosities, this Southern Caribbean island destination offers a rugged terrain as the perfect backdrop for all types of travellers: adventure seekers, beach bums, divers, history buffs, epicureans and modern city explorers. The potential of the future of the island has made Curaçao a popular spot for investors, too.
A UNESCO World Heritage City is a rare gem in the Caribbean. Of all the exciting things to do in Curaçao, Willemstad itself may offer the most unique experience in all of the Caribbean. The capital’s Dutch colonial ancestry is evident at every turn, most notably in Punda’s kaleidoscopic, sherbet-coloured architecture, which you won’t find anywhere else outside of the Netherlands.
Outside of Willemstad, visitors can continue to broaden their horizons by diving and snorkelling at more than 60 dive sites around the island or by satisfying their taste buds at a wide variety of sidewalk cafés, gourmet restaurants, local eateries and markets.
Wherever your journey takes you, you’ll know you’re seeing the Caribbean the way it was meant to be seen. Perfect for those seeking the warmth of a tropical vacation with added European flair, culture, delicious cuisine, and history, Curaçao is a Caribbean island where you can truly feel free.
