Introduction - introductie

This blog is not a trail guide. It is about the beauty and the diversity of Curaçao.
There are dry months and wet months, days with wind or storm or no breeze at all.
Due to the weather conditions, you may find he trails to be very different from what our pictures show.

Most recent hikes are described in Dutch / Nederlands (kijk voor de laatste wandelingen in het blogarchief). De paden veranderen snel, ze groeien dicht of worden gesloten. Er komen ook nieuwe routes bij.

The other entrees are in English. Our main object is to show the beauty of the island. We cannot always give exact directions of trail heads or ends.
Many trails change, closed by owners, or overgrown. . the maintenance depends on
enthusiastic volunteers. Our group tries out new trails too.

Important: never go hike alone! When visiting popular places like the Salt pans of Jan Kok or Ascencion Bay don't get out of your car unless other people are there. Leave money, cards and other valuables at the Hotel.
If you have no one to come with you, take a hiking tour with a guide. Please read the page with
tips and info
Do not touch the
Manzanilla tree or its leaves and apples. They are poisonous.

Enjoy Hiking Curaçao!

Fort Beekenburg

Last update: ownership changed. May be open, maybe closed. Trails not well kept.

Most recent hike: Kabritenberg - Goat hill (soon)

You find Fort Beekenburg at the end of the Caracasbaaiweg.
The situation is changing there. Maybe you can still go for a walk, maybe the area is closed. It is not as save there as it used to be, and probably a bit dirty.
You can follow an easy trail in the area between the Caracas bay and the Spanish Water.
You can also climb the Kabrietenberg (goat hill). Follow the blue ribbons.
Wear good shoes! You walk on hard and sharp lava tuff.
