It's a bridge. A long, high bridge. I guess it is spectacular in that it is the highest in the Caribbean, but I wouldn't make it the prime reason for traveling to Curaçao, unless you are a structural engineer or a hobbyist of things of this nature. It definitely makes the journey from here to there much shorter than it... More

Majestic view from below and even better from up top. Too bad you cant stop there for some more views.

If you're afraid of height, don't pass this bridge. Veeeery tall one! When the cruise ships are "parked" it's easier to see how tall "she" is. You should pass at least twice (go and be back) to see.

Very tall - awesome view while going over it. However, you might want to take the long way around if you are afraid of heights :)

A really high bridge that the cruise ships or oil rigs can fit under, you can see both sides of Punda and Otrabanda and the ugly oil refinery on the other side of the bridge. Even the cruise ships look different from above, very impressive

The Queen Juliana Bridge dominates the Willemstad skyline and inspires one question instantly: how was it built? We learned that it had costs several lives, and were not surprised. Connecting the two parts of the city, it was hard to imagine how difficult it must have been to conduct commerce between them before the bridge was finished. It is thrilling... More

You'll enjoy eating at the Iguana Café while being entertained as the bridge "swing open" to allow passing ships through the inlet. A great view can be had from both sides particularly at night. Bring your camera!

It's a great view of Willemstad while driving over the bridge. However it's just a bridge. Not much of a big deal. It's very high as to allow the ships to pass under. It's the same architecture that's on the bridge located in Suriname.

What an enjoyable view from the top! You get to see all of Willemstad and the cruise ships below you. It's all twists and turns approaching and departing. Coming from Otrobanda, the (free) Waaigat Parking lot (guarded) can't be missed. Not your usual bridge.

It's worth the trouble taking a taxi or bus into Willemstad to get a view of the harbor up to the Queen Julianna Bridge. Probably would not walk the bridge itself.
