Multicolored Waterfront

Here's the Curacaoan capital's answer to San Francisco's Painted Ladies and Copenhagen's Nyhavn. Handelskade encompasses strikingly colored waterfront buildings along Willemstad's harbor, forming one of the truly defining urban sights of the island.

Whether you're viewing the pastel-hued lineup from the flanking esplanade or—even better—from out on the water, the Handelskade makes one heck of a photo op. It also offers a memorable picture of Curacao's Dutch heritage and history.
