Surprise, I’m not in Curacao anymore! Let’s continue where I left off last time though, I had done nothing but lying by the pool and promised to have more interesting things to tell once I’d done some sightseeing tours!
I started with a beach tour and went to 3 of the most beautiful beaches of the island, Kenepa beach, Cas Abou beach and Porto Marie beach. It was such a cloudy/rainy day, but it didn’t matter cause the beaches were so pretty and so much fun! This is Kenepa beach (I may have taken this picture later that week when I visited Kenepa beach for the second time and the weather was better BUT IT JUST LOOKS PRETTIER WITH A BLUE SKY OKAY)
The next day I went to Westpunt with a Belgian girl I’d met at the hostel (shoutout to Marthe, woohoo!) and while she went snorkeling, I stayed on the beach to work on my tan. Cause obviously I hadn’t done that enough yet. We also went to the Albert Heijn supermarket which is a Dutch supermarket and I was probably way too excited to be there. As soon as we stepped in there it felt like I was back in Amsterdam, it looks exactly like the Albert Heijn’s at home and it was funny to see all the stuff I usually buy at home. Ofcourse I couldn’t leave there without buying poffertjes.
Then it was finally time for the boattrip to Klein Curacao which is a small uninhabited island near Curacao (it translates to Little Curacao). I had been looking forward to this so much! We boarded the catamaran early that day and the trip lasted about an hour and a half. I met some girls on the boat who were in our hostel as well and we went on to do some snorkeling and to explore the island! There was a shipwreck on one side of the island and a really cool deserted lighthouse which we went into and we could go all the way to the top!
When we sailed back there was an open bar (I love those two little words) and there were a whole bunch of dolphins swimming along with the catamaran, it was amazing! I’d never seen anything like that, there must’ve been like 20 of them. Along with the dolphins we also saw a lot of flying fishes which was really cool! That night we went out to Zanzibar with a few people we met on the catamaran that day, it was a great ending to a perfect day!
Another tour I did on Curacao was the island tour which took us to Landhuis Chobolobo, the salt lakes with the pink flamingos and nature park Shete Boka. Landhuis Chobolobo is were they make the islands famous liqueur Blue Curacao, it was nice to walk around there for a bit! Shete Boka is also definitely a must if you’re ever on Curacao, I took pictures but it’s really something you have to see for yourself cause the pictures don’t express how amazing it actually is. Here’s a picture of Landhuis Chobolobo though!
After Curacao I went on to Miami, but I have to take a rain check on that story since I once again procrastinated blogging for a few weeks and now have a ridiculous amount of things to write about. I promise to get to it as soon as possible!
