About the San Nicolas Area

Santa Martha Bay is such a beautiful spot on Curacao, it has a great view, and shows the island in a different way. It is quiet, because this place is not visited by tourists that much. The bay is near the village of Soto.

And a visit to the plantation house Landhuis Groot Santa Martha is one of the few houses built in a U-shape, it’s definitely worth to visit it. The plantation house now serves as a care facility for people with physical and/or mental disabilities and their products they make are sold in the shop.

Landhuis Klein Santa Martha is a large 480-hectare sugar cane and divi-divi plantation dating back to the 1700’s. Landhuis Klein Santa Martha was once one of the top three producers of salt on the island, along with Landhuis Groot Santa Martha and Landhuis San Nicolas, thanks to the large salt pans and nearby Santa Martha Bay being the most productive on the island.
