“This is a great experience”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

We were standing on the bridge and getting some pics when they started to open it for a Holland America cruise ship. Oh so cool. It is a very unique experience walking across this bridge to get to and from the marketplace and shopping. If you're in Curacao take the time to "walk the bridge", it's a once in a lifetime experience

Lit up with lights at night. Great photo op. Swings to let ships through, something I have never seen before

“Stay on whilst it swings open”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

This bridge is picturesque. We got caught in the middle when it opened and as a result got some great photos! It is lit up at night too. It's easier to park by the market square and walk over the bridge to shop/eat than to go over the big bridge and find parking the other side.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

I was very amused by this bridge. Whoever thought to build a bridge on a bunch of pontoons was very innovative. Walking across it made me feel like I had a few too many drinks as my legs felt wobbyly (and continued to feel so for a few minutes after I got off), but it was so cool. If you're in downtown Willemstad, you can't miss it so you may as well check it out :)

“Swing Baby Swing”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Never saw a bridge allow boat passage that way. Very interesting to see and walk on. It was lit up beautifully at night.
