Step aboard a catamaran, sail 25 kilometers off the coast and spend a day walking, snorkeling and sunbathing on uninhabited Klein Curacao. 'Klein' has pearly white beaches that are an important nesting ground for several species of sea turtles and the surrounding waters are rich in spectacular coral reefs, underwater cities of Anthozoa that are a major attraction for numerous colourful fish species. The sleepy island is also an absolute must-see for birdwatchers. It is home to a significant amount of the global population of the American Tiny Tern.
On Klein Curacao, due to the poor visibility from the water, the northeast trade winds and the strong currents, many ships have been stranded in the past, shipwrecks of which the Maria Bianca Guidesman and the Tchao are witnesses on the beaches. A signal post proved to be an essential beacon for navigation, a need that was met in 1849 by means of the iconic pink lighthouse. Destroyed by a tornado but promptly rebuilt, it is now a monumental ruin and one of the island's landmarks.. Where the world can't find you...
