Island Sigh

At a remote point at the westernmost edge of the island, there's an unusual and intriguing natural phenomenon that has been described as the 'breath' of Curacao. After the ocean waves hit a rocky reef on the shore, they travel under the reef, and water then bubbles up through the numerous rock pools scattered around. Stand there for a while, and listen to a sound that's suggestive of the island itself heaving a sigh.

Watamula Park is free for the public to come and go as they like, and the views are beautiful. It's well worth a visit, but there are two warnings that need to be given. The rock is sharp, and you need good shoes. Also, make sure that any valuables are secure, as this is a theft hotspot.
