Although this mall is in an old fort, you wouldn't know it without the signage. It's very clean and nice shopping area, but the fact that it's in a fort is nothing special.

1. It's fun to walk around the top of the fort walls; the views are superb! (And it's free to do so.) 2. There is a new museum on the left-hand side as you enter the fort. They have a fascinating collection of historical photos and art books you can peruse, as well as lovely, non-tacky calendars with art by... More

This is a nice quaint area that's a short walk from the Renaissance Hotel. A few shops, art galleries and a mix of cafes and restaurants are located here and make up this tourist area. It's nice when you have nothing else to do.

On Otrbanda side of Willenstad, a curious cosmopolitan admix of small souvenir shops and boutiques, cafes and seating. Some good views over the water entry to Willemstad. Shaded seating conveniently near taxi and bus stands and Emma Bridge. No post-office or Bank. Go to Willemstad proper in Punda for that, and for legitimate fruit and fish sellers, market and produce.

Very nice spot with many lovely, petite stores and fine restaurants. Great view of the Santa Anna Bay and Punda from the fort's upper floor. Also a short walk from the island's most prestigious cinema and several hotels.

Much like it's San Francisco counterpart, you will find overpriced souvenirs, but some fun restaurants and locally made art.
