Not of the Lawn Variety

Of all the wildlife native to Curacao, one of the most elegant surely is the Caribbean flamingo, which favors the island's shallow salt lakes. The sanctuary near Sint Willibrordus is one of the best places to see these tall, pink, big-billed birds. The sight of a flock of them poised in the glinting waters with the dry rimrock hills as backdrop is pretty unforgettable—and, if you're really lucky, maybe you'll see some flamingos on the wing, taking off or coming in for a stylish landing.

Make a roadside stop to scan for the feathered residents of the Flamingo Sanctuary Sint Willibrordus: They distill Curacao's beauty and magic to its essence.
