Beautiful spot.. There were local artists selling things as we walked. The architecture was really beautful. I loved all the houses painted every color.

To me, a bridge is a bridge is a bridge. It is incredibly high and has a sleek look from a distance. If you cross from Otrobando to Punda or vice versa via car, you will cross it. The view is nice but moving across it doesn't really allow for a photo op.

From the bridge you have a great overview of the centre. There is a small spot on the bridge where you can stop and take pic.

When you travel West to East, you are in the right lane to get the best view of historic Willemstad, including the multi-coloured building on the waterfront.... More

Tallest bridge in the Caribbean provides us incredible views. The touristic Punda and Otrobanda in one side and the industrial port in the other. Walking is forbidden, so drive slowly and take pictures!

Our driver pulled over so we could take a picture from the bridge, and what a view of Willemstad. We came on a cruise ship on our first visit and passed under it. This visit we were in Curacao for a week so we were able to pass over it. What a wonderful place Curacao is, and we can't wait... More
