    Things to Do

    • Savor the Caribbean sun on one of 35+ beaches—from rocky coves to swaths of white sand. Try local favorite Cas Abao or popular Seaquarium beaches.
    • Shipwrecks, coral reefs, caves, and lots (and lots) of tropical fish make Curacao a gay traveler's scuba diving or snorkeling Shangri-La.
    • Explore the charming, 18th-century town of Willemstad. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, you'll find upscale casinos, on-the-water eateries, and pastel buildings around every corner.
    • Tee off on one of the island's many 18-hole championship golf courses.

    Romance

    SIndulge in Curacao's legendary luxury resorts. Full service spas and long walks on the beach come standard.

    Nightlife

    While few bars are gay-exclusive—Lyrics Café in Willemstad may be the only one—LGBT travelers will find friendly faces wherever they go. Visit Mambo Beach for on-the-sand excess or stick to Willemstad for the most options.
