  • It is located in the highest part of Curaçao with 360 degree view, rich for a few drinks and eat a bite watching the sunset

  • On the way to the West-point drop by for a cup of coffee. Although it is not yet officially was open, we were warmly received. Delicious coffee for a nice price on such a beautiful place. Beautiful views of the Schottegat. Unfortunately our intended dinner no more during this holiday. Next time we go for sure.
