Curaçao Photo Diary

Punda - Curacaos beautiful little town

Curacao in one word is Paradise. This was my first trip to a Caribbean island and I have to say I'm HOOKED! So much so that the boyfriend and I started talking about next years holiday to another island in the Caribbean. The weather never dropped below 35 degrees (even at night it was really hot) and the seafood was just sublime. We had the opportunity of trying some of the local catches including Red Snapper. To top that (which was my favourite part about island life) the beaches were Stunning! My uncle has lived there for a little over 6 months now so he has explored and found some beautiful, secluded beaches where the water is clear as day and the sand is the whitest I have ever seen. The locals take so much pride and care of their beaches that they are some the cleanest beaches around, they're always so happy to talk to you and have you involved in so much of their culture - we saw BBQs on practically every beach we went to, which seemed like something that came so naturally to them, and was pivotal to Island Living. 

Since the holiday was all about remembering Dad the first day was spent enjoying and reflecting. We did this the only way we knew how, on a golf course at the driving range.We all had a go at trying to hit the golf ball (most of them I missed) and then headed to the bar and watched the sunset. The views were just stunning from that side of the island. The rest of the week was spent hunting down gorgeous secluded beaches and views, places to eat and lots of sunbathing and snorkelling. We seriously didnt want to come home but as always all good things must come to an end. I had such a blast being in such a beautiful island, with lovely weather, great food and fantastic company.
