“For Bridge Enthusiasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This bridge coonects Punda and Otrabanda. It has a great view, but crosses close to the refinery, which is not very environmentally friendly.

“Great view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Don't drive too fast across and you will have fantastic views of Punda and Otrobanda on one side and the harbor/refinery (if you're into that kind of thing it's awesome) on the other side.

“Cool bridge, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We drove over the Queen Juliana Bridge a few times while driving around Curacao on our honeymoon. I'm not sure I'd call it a 'tourist attraction' per se, but it is a pretty cool bridge. Very high with a commanding view of Willemstad (both the Otrobanda and Punda sides). It's tall enough for the massive cruise ships to pass under and driving across it is certainly a memorable experience... and also a little intimidating the first time you try it. It looked like there was also a walkway across for those that want to take more time to savor the view. Definitely worth the time if you find yourself in town.

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

This bridge is very modern. It's amazing to think the the height of the bridge is necessary for ships to pass through. Great view from the top!
