Neat to go across

Pretty cool setup, just try not to get caught with a big ship crossing! Was even better to see it lit up for the holiday season.

Try to get stuck on it while it's opening for a free ride around the channel. Beautiful bridge during the day and at night.

Participants of the KLM marathon we ran over the bridge. An exotic and joyful experience. We also visited during the Thursday Vibe feast. Perfect photo moments for the holiday

You cannot visit Willemstad and not see the pontoon bridge. You will hope that if there is ship traffic to come that you will see the bridge swing open completely. Walking over the bridge you can get wonderful photos of the waterfront businesses all in their wonderful display.

This was one of our highlights during our brief stay in Curacao. We watched the bridge open and close a couple of times. Unique!

Very pretty place especially at night. This bridge can take a while to move back so don't get stranded if you are in a hurry.

This is a unique and long bridge on pontoons that swings 90 degrees with the assistance of a small tug to allow large and small ships through. It is a walking bridge which connects the old town to the other side and provides great views of the colorful buildings in the old town.

Very unique ponton bridge. When there is a boat/ship coming in it will open. You can even stay on it and wait the ship pass. If the bridge is open you can take the shuttle boat that will take you to the other side. A must see and experience the great design.

Visited on Nov 24, 2016. The bridge is amazing. You can feel the movement of the water with it being a pontoon bridge. We were on the bridge and a boat carrying fresh fish need to pass so we were stuck for a couple minutes so the bridge could move for the boat to pass. Would have loved to seen... More
