Beautiful beaches, turquoise blue water and numerous sights: Curaçao offers everything for a truly dreamlike holiday. Experience the Caribbean island completely independently and flexibly with a rental car!
Discover Willemstad, Curaçao
Bay in Curaçao
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.
Curaçao by rental car
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Attention: If an accident should nevertheless occur, you must not change the scene of the accident! Even if your car blocks the road, you must wait for the Road Service to arrive.
