Westpunt

Westpunt, village in the west

Westpunt is the western part of the island. This side of Curacao, which locals call ‘Banda Abou’, literally means the ‘lower side’. The area is totally different from the busy eastern part of the island around Willemstad. It’s quiet and you’ll find the unspoiled nature of Curacao in areas like the Christoffel Park and the north coast line of ‘Shete Boka’ (seven inlets). There is only one road going to Westpunt which is called ‘Weg naar Westpunt’, meaning ‘Road to Westpunt’. In Curacao they stick to logic when it comes to road names ;-).
 

Banda Abou

‘Banda Abou’ is the area where you find the most beautiful natural beaches with names like ‘Grote Knip’ and ‘Playa Lagun’ with crystal clear water and white sandy beaches. The sea at Westpunt is perfect for snorkeling and diving. For diving tips: Go West Diving ; join these friendly people to discover the underwater ‘Westpunt’ world of Curacao.
 
You’re also in the right spot when trying to take in a little culture. At Westpunt you’ll find some ‘kunuku’ houses (former slavery houses) and beautiful ‘landhuizen’ which were used as plantation estates during the slavery time. Currently ‘landhuizen’ have become cultural heritage and most have been restored and are being used as guesthouses and restaurants like Landhuis Klein Santa Martha with their beautiful views and excellent food.
 
So if you want to see the gorgeous nature of Curacao, or to escape from the busy city, to swim and relax on the nicest beaches… then visit Westpunt. Just for a day, or stay your entire vacation in one of the small boutique resorts such as Rancho el Sobrino or Landhuis Klein Santa Martha.
