“Even those of you out there that just aren’t that into scuba diving (mountain people, gasp!), can’t deny just how beautiful this tiny Caribbean island’s water is. Yes, even you, mountain person, will want to take a dip in this idyllic bathwater.
Which is why it’s no surprise why this tiny Dutch island has made this year’s list. Because when the water is so clear that it looks like boats are levitating mid-air, you’re onto a place that’s surreal – both over and underwater.So, for the people who are into diving, you can only imagine just how exciting it is to get below the surface and see what else awaits in these magical blue waters.”
This was the beginning of what was to become an incredible and unprecedented year of international press coverage for, and a massive boost in awareness of, the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao. With a unique blend of history, culture, language, food and music and incredible diving, Curaçao is distinguishing itself from other Caribbean and worldwide destinations. In addition, the island’s dive industry partners are invested in regular / ongoing and extensive initiatives for marine conservation and sustainable tourism.
Curaçao speaks to the curious explorer in us all!
Home to more than 35 captivating beaches, a diverse heritage spanning 55 different cultures, ‘live and let live’ attitude and unrivaled European architecture; Curaçao remains one of the most exceptional islands of the region. Its capital city, Willemstad — a UNESCO World Heritage site — with its iconic colorful Handelskade backdrop and roster of museums, monuments, flavorful restaurants and shopping, was selected in 2013 as one of the Top 5 Cities in the Caribbean by Condé Nast Traveler’s readers. Curaçao’s natural beauty, pristine diving and snorkeling sites are a favorite with divers and adventure seekers, and its beaches and idyllic weather, situated on the outer fringes of the Hurricane Belt, has won it further accolade and recognition.
