Curaçao – Dream Island of the Lesser Antilles

The Caribbean island of Curaçao is about 60 kilometres from South America. Since 2010, the island has been an autonomous part of the Dutch Kingdom. Curaçao is as attractive for seaside holidaymakers as it is for the numerous divers who explore the spectacular coral reefs. The capital Willemstad enchants with its historic colonial buildings, but also offers an exciting nightlife and shopping possibilities. Holiday-makers discover the islands best with the rented car, since the island is not big, the public local traffic is however often badly developed.

Discover Curacao with a rental car

Curaçao by rental car

Curaçao by rental car

  • Politically Curacao belongs to the Netherlands and is the largest island of the Dutch Antilles.
  • It lies off the coast of Venezuela. The island with its own charm covers an area of 444 square kilometres and is ideal for discovering a piece of paradise on your own with a rental car.
  • Ideally you should pick up one of our Curacao airport car rentals. Most car rentals are located at the Curacao airport, hence is a wide range of rental cars available. 
  • For a visit to Dushi Korsou (sweet Curaçao), as the locals lovingly call the island, a rental car is highly recommended. Many beaches and sights are not accessible by public transport and are difficult to reach on foot. With a rental car you can explore the beauty of the Caribbean Sea independently. From any point of the island you can reach the place of your choice quickly by car.

Your rental car takes you to dream beaches on Curacao

Start in Willemstad and drive to beautiful beaches. Make your very own tour with a rental car and stay flexible. Curacao's beaches and coves are among the most beautiful in the world. Most beaches, such as Jan Thiel and Santa Barbara, are located in the quiet and protected south of Curaçao. With the rental car you can reach almost all beach sections in less than 20 minutes. An excursion to the dream beach Playa Lagun in the northwest of the island is highly recommended. The paradise for divers and snorkellers can be reached in about 50 minutes by rental car from Willemstad.

Driveboo tip:

Tip: Although the rough north coast of Curaçao is not suitable for swimming, it is still worth a visit. With a rental car you can drive along the coast and watch the natural spectacle of the waves hitting the rock formations. On the way there are always benches to rest and observe.

Sights on Curaçao

Swim with turtles

Swim with turtles

This Caribbean gem has much more to offer than the famous blue sea and beautiful beaches. From the city centre of Willemstad you can reach the most beautiful sights very quickly by rental car. Fulfill a dream and swim with dolphins in the Dolphinacademie or visit the impressive Christoffel National Park. For a fee you can drive through the park - including historical remains of Indian settlements - by rental car. The mountain route offers an impressive ride and many vantage points invite you to stop and linger.

Highlight Little Curaçao

An absolute must during your visit to Curaçao is an excursion to the neighbouring island of Little Curaçao. The uninhabited island is only one kilometer wide and barely three kilometers long. The beaches are spacious and snow-white, an island dream as if from a pirate film. Take a walk to the lighthouse and visit impressive shipwrecks. For divers the coral reefs and underwater caves are an absolute highlight.

Car rental on Curaçao – Tips

Without a car, holidaymakers on Curaçao are relatively restricted. We therefore recommend renting a car at the airport to visit Curaçao. After a long flight it may be advisable to have the rental car delivered directly to the hotel for a fresh and relaxed late start. On Curaçao you will find a wide range of car rentals, most of which are located near the airport and in Willemstad. Many providers also have counters in larger hotels.
