I never thought crossing a tidal body of water would be so possible. The bridge allows patrons to cross in both directions, a must see.

This slightly swinging Pontoon Bridge is easy to access & a must for any traveller to Curacao. It's fun to cross and an experience when it swings open to let larger boats through to the ocean and it's FREE!

It's not your regular bridge. It is one of the few bridges that can open. It's a must see when you go to Curacao. The bridge is decorated with lights so it's great to take a walk on it. And if the bridge is open you can cross with a boat. There are a few places you can sit and... More

This is of course one of the top attractions of Curaçao at least according to our granddaughter Anna who turned 6 on the day of the visit. Wonderful experience for her to see the bridge being opened just after we crossed it. And the views towards the main Juliana bridge towering above in the near distance completes the spectacular views... More

This is definitely a tourist thing to do! It is interesting to watch how the bridge works and walk over it without appearing drunk. And, you have great views of Willemstad.

First of all, think about it? This is a pontoon bridge! That in itself is amazing and is a must see! Walk across it and take photos of both sides of the city .. yet another wonderful thing to do. Stick around and actually see this marvel "swing" open to allow a ship through or better yet ... a spectacular... More

Step onboard for a stroll across the bridge. Take a bottle of water and a camera. The views from the bridge are the best.
