There are nice views from the top but more so towards the Punda as the other side is the industrial side that is ever bustling in Curacao. There is no walking allowed the same as most similar bridges of it's height due to previous jumpers. If you are a photographer you must get permission (and probably a permit of some... More

Take a ride (by cab or private car) over this amazing bridge. Great views of the city. If you go at night, you can see the Punda bridge aglow with beautiful colored lights.

While there in April, the bridge was under repairs - and traffic was awful coming and going! But absolutely beautiful views from this HIGH bridge!
