Rundown Grandeur

Curacao boasts a number of vintage fortresses, and Fort St. Michiel is among the oldest. Likely erected around 1701, the fort served its purpose of guarding the gateway to St. Michiel's bay through the early 19th century, and ever since has been slowly deteriorating. But the crumbling, overgrown ramparts and the rusted cannons still faithfully aimed seaward prove that a little decrepitude can be beautiful, too—especially when it comes backdropped by western Curacao's Caribbean skyline.

You can easily combine a visit to Fort St. Michiel with some sunbathing or snorkeling at St. Michiel's home beach of Boka Sami.
