2. Wander through the Otrobanda and Punda at Willemstad
The historically rich area of Otrobanda is the undisputed focal point of the island’s capital at Willemstad.
Tagged by UNESCO for its sheer wealth of elegant Dutch homes and pastel-painted terraces of Flemish-esque townhouses, it’s got a real charm.
Come and wander here and pass the handsome stretches of the Brionplein, just abutting the courses of St Anna Bay, see the painted colonial homes of Hoogstraat.
Across the water is the Punda area.
Here, you’ll discover the elaborate facades of the Penha Building from 1708, along with the palm-peppered lawns of Wilhelminapark.
