This bridge is a true wonder. It is so high and extremely long, and rather frightening to traverse. We used it to get to the other side of Punda, but weren't really sure where to get off. Then, on our return, we spent time driving around looking for the entrance before finding it. A bridge that large should have better... More

This tall bridge (the tallest in the Caribbean) is quite imposing. We took at taxi over it and the view of the city is lovely. If you are taking a taxi back to your hotel from Willemstad definitely ask the taxi to go over it.

I don't know what other reviewers are talking about when they say they saw this bridge open to let ships through. It is not a draw bridge! It is the tallest bridge in the Caribbean and was designed that way so that all of the huge cruise ships at the time could go under it. That said, it offers truly... More

Great birds-eye view of the city and of the boat traffic in the port. Also, much faster to go over the bridge than driving the Ring road around the refinery! The bridge itself is quite impressive, and any time we were out driving the kids would ask "are we going to go over the bridge?". Getting to the bridge by... More

You must wait to see this bridge open. Day and night attraction for all ages. Near there you will find several stores and restaurants.

Chances are that during you stay you will drive over the bridge. If you get a chance stop and take in the view below - Punda, Otrobanda, the harbor and the blue Caribbean Sea - Awesome.

This iconic blue bridge is 1,400 feet long (according to sources I've read) and 185 feet above the water (at its highest point). It offers impressive views while crossing it but it is impressive just looking at it. This bridge is literally a "must see" because you can't miss it.

Even if you have to take a taxi cab to drive over the bridge, it is worth it for the superb view of downtown and greater Willemstad in Curacao. Gorgeous.

We love watching the opening and closing of the bridge - it's especially lovely the way it is lit at night!

Very impressive engineering structure with excellent view! Another page in Dutch history of building bridges. It is very high and looks like it is flying over Willemstad.
