Curaçao is known for its beaches tucked into coves and its expansive coral reefs, rich with marine life.
Beaches in the south are more developed than those in the north. Local beaches have bars and restaurants and are a mix of both types.

PLACES OF INTEREST
Curaçao has so many places to experience.
Here are a few of our favourites.
We highly reccommend a visit to Willemstad.
Known for it’s pastel-coloured old town and filled with fantastic fish restraunts and friendly bars. You could very easily while away a very pleasant day or afternoon discovering what Curacao’s vibrant capital has to offer.
Divers Republic is the most personable and based at the next door beach, Daaibooi.
Willemstad's old town is home to many art galleries, fashion boutiques and sidewalk cafes.
Learn about the local fruits: mangosteens, markossa rambutan, tamarillo, granadilla, pitahya, mango, gulypa. Delicious!
There are plenty of great food options around depending on how far you wish to travel.
Less than 10-minutes' walk or less than half an hour's drive from the villa.
Try the Dutch cheeseball snacks.
On the seashore, a 1-minute walk further past the bakery is a casual bar & restaurant with great lunches and snacks. There is also a spa on the same level.
Curaçao has wonderful local markets and boutique shops.
These are all within easy reach of Hummingbird Villa.
Fresh daily produce from Venezuela. Willemstad is an easy 20-minute drive away.
High end beachwear and holiday gifts.
