Like the Salt Pans of Jan Kok, the Jan Thiel Laguna has a large group of flamingos. The laguna is not on a main road, but a very popular footpath along the coast (from Seaquarium to Jan Thiel Beach) brings you to the salt pans of Jan Thiel. From there you can start to go around the laguna.
You can also start your hike from Bottelier or from The road to Jan Thiel beach. The trail around the laguna is nice and doable in any season, but in the wet season there may be places that get too muddy. In that case you have to climb the rocks to avoid the wet trail or you have to turn back to where you came from.
Plantation house Jan Thiel: Curaçao Monuments
From Seaquarium to Jan Thiel Beach, there is a rather difficult trail along the coast. Lots of climbing and jumping there! See pictures above.
From Bottelier there is a small trail to the plantation house Jan Thiel; from there you can go on to the east side of the Jan Thiel laguna.
The Jan Thiel Laguna is always beautiful. There is a cooling breeze and little waves whisper at your feet. There are many side trails you can choose from. All offer nice views.
