Koraalriffen van Curaçao

De koraalriffen van Curaçao, waar talloze zeedieren leven, zijn het meest opvallende natuurlijke kenmerk van het eiland onder water. Zachte organismen maken levende koralen tot wat ze zijn. Cellen op de bodem van het koraalrif van Curaçao scheiden telkens een vitale druppel kalksteen af, waardoor het rif kan groeien. Kalksediment is alles wat overblijft wanneer deze koralen sterven. Er groeien dan andere koralen op, die meer kalksteen produceren en uiteindelijk vergaan.

    Duiken en snorkelen

    Er zijn veel eenvoudige manieren om te genieten van het beste dat het eiland te bieden heeft. Een groot deel van het koraalrif van Curaçao ligt bijvoorbeeld op slechts een paar minuten zwemmen van het strand. Wie de prachtige onderwaterwereld van het Caribisch gebied wil zien, kan dat doen door te snorkelen of te duiken met een zuurstoftank.

    Het duurde miljoenen jaren voordat het rif zich langzaam vormde. Daarom is het heel belangrijk te weten dat als je koraal aanraakt (bijvoorbeeld met je zwemvinnen), het afsterft. Dan duurt het weer erg lang om te herstellen. Blijf daarom tijdens het duiken en snorkelen boven het koraalrif van Curaçao en raak niets aan.

    Koraalriffen op Curaçao

    Er zijn verschillende plaatsen waar u het koraalrif van Curaçao kunt bewonderen. We zetten onze top vier op een rij.

    Klein Curaçao

    Een van de populairste excursies op Curaçao is een boottocht naar Klein Curaçao, een klein koraaleiland op ongeveer 16 km van het hoofdeiland. Het 800 meter lange witte zandstrand aan de lijzijde van het eiland is een favoriete plek om zeeschildpadden te spotten en te snorkelen. De aangrenzende koraalriffen van Curaçao herbergen ongeveer 350 tropische vissoorten en 65 koraalsoorten. Vlindervissen, maanvissen, tangvissen, kleine baarzen, kogelvissen en een overvloed aan andere rifvissen kunnen allemaal worden gezien tijdens het snorkelen voor het strand van Klein Curaçao.

    Sleepboot in de baai van Caracas

    Een kleine sleepboot verging 30 jaar geleden voor de rotsachtige kust van Caracasbaai. Het wrak, nu bedekt met koraal, ligt slechts vijf meter onder de oppervlakte en is een favoriete plek om te snorkelen en te duiken. Geen stroming of golven verstoren uw rustige duik- of snorkelervaring boven de trompetvissen, murenen, engelvissen en buiskoralen beneden. Het koraalrif van Curaçao om de hoek bij Tugboat, dat tot 30 meter diep zinkt, kan worden verkend door duikers die iets verder uitzwemmen. Duikboten vertrekken vanaf verschillende plekken, of u kunt vanaf de kust naar de Tugboat-ruïnes zwemmen.

    Ideaal voor Zakenmensen, Stellen of Geliefden die een pauze nodig hebben

    Alice in Wonderland in Playa Kalki

    Playa Kalki heeft een fantastisch onderwaterleven naast het prachtige koraalrif van Curaçao en een wit strand van zand en koraalpuin. Je voelt je als Alice in Wonderland terwijl je een hele nieuwe, spannende wereld ontdekt. Pijlstaartroggen, schildpadden, murenen en tropische vissen noemen allemaal de verschillende paddestoelvormige koraalformaties op slechts drie minuten zwemmen van de kust hun thuis. Vanuit de Kura Hulanda Lodge & Beach Club leidt een trap naar beneden naar het strandje. Go West Diving is een plaats waar u uitrusting kunt huren om te duiken en te snorkelen.

    Cas Abao

    Dit exclusieve strand van Cas Abao Beach heeft poederwit zand, wuivende palmbomen en azuurblauw water. Duik in de oceaan om een grote verscheidenheid aan zeeleven te zien, waaronder harde en zachte koralen en zeesponzen op het koraalrif van Curaçao. Tropische vissen zoals kogelvissen, papegaaivissen, sergeant-majoors en murenen zwemmen hier ook in overvloed. Op het koraalrif van Curaçao zijn ook zeeschildpadden en zeepaardjes te vinden, als je geluk hebt. De poort van het verlaten landgoed Cas Abao leidt direct naar het strand. De duikwinkel direct aan de kust heeft materiaal te huur voor snorkelen en andere activiteiten.

    I have not experienced the rooms yet, but as an event, experiencing their service, attention and hospitality, they are doing a great job. The garden forms an amazing ambience for network meetings and private events. Definately recommended. Compliments to some of the waiters that are quite proactive and go the extra mile. Kudos to the team!

    Beautiful, nice and service-oriented boutique hotel in the heart of Willemstad.To be clear: If you book via Corendon: certainly not a 5* hotel (a good 4 is better). Missing some critical things. But they make up for it with great service!A quick summary of plus and minus pointsPlus:-Location. The heart of Willemstad. In the middle of restored Otrabanda. 15 minutes walk from Nieuwstraat. Nevertheless, very quiet.-Service: employees are super friendly and helpful.-Rooms. Rooms are clean and beds great. Nice shower. Are cleaned every day. And I mean really cleaned.-Nice poolside bar where there is a lot of chatting in the evening.-Adult only. Really nice.Minus:-No beach access. This is not something that you can blame the hotel for, but it is stated differently on the Corendon site. If you want to go to a beach, you will have to arrange that yourself. Otherwise they would have gotten 5 stars for location.-Swimming pool is quite small for 46 rooms. There are approximately 13 beds, so on busy check-out days: do the math.-Breakfast. They have outsourced breakfast to a restaurant nearby (Bario). Not a buffet but a la carte. During our stay we suffered from long waiting times. Kura management then took steps and things improved.-No gym.Extras:-If you stay here, it is wise to arrange a car for at least a few days.-Be informed by the hotel management about where to eat/be etc etc.

The rooms were not only nice but also impeccably clean, which is always a priority for me when traveling. The location is fantastic, being so close to Brionplein and Punda, making it convenient to explore the vibrant surroundings.The ambiance at Kura Botanica is truly special. It radiates charm and offers a tranquil atmosphere that made my stay even more enjoyable. The staff was welcoming and attentive, adding to the overall positive experience.I would highly recommend Kura Botanica to anyone looking for a cozy and well-maintained boutique hotel in Curacao. It's a gem that ensures a delightful stay in this beautiful destination.

    Hotel with a beautiful garden, in the middle of a historic village. The service from the staff has always been friendly and multilingual. The room we stayed in was new and the bed was excellent!However, some problems were observed. They didn't replace the amenities for our last night, nor did they even collect a towel that was on the floor.The shower is also not separated from the rest of the bathroom, there is no curtain or shower stall which makes the bathroom wet. There was also a lack of support for soap and shampoo, which are on the floor.The parking lot is far away and you need to either walk with your bags or take your car close to the entrance and then return to the parking lot.But the worst thing for me was the breakfast. it is served in another hotel and there is no variety, it doesn't change between days, it is very simple and contained. You can just have a coffee and a juice and not repeat it. On the first day we were treated very poorly, even harshly, which made us not want to go back the next day.

    Great place to stay. Renovated only recently and rooms are excellent. Staff is very helpful and polite. Pool is a bit small but perfect to relax at the end of day. Or whenever you start your day later.Breakfast is in collaboration with a place 1min away and is taken good care off. Choices and taste are overall just good.They did tell Kura B is planning to build their own kitchen in the near future. But the 1min (literally) walk shouldn't trouble you.

    We are locals and wanted a relaxing escape from our usual routine. This place was extremely relaxing, with a beautiful pool surrounded by large trees to provide a great mix of shade and sun. The hotel is very well located with many great restaurants within a few minutes walk. The rooms are very well designed for an authentic Curacao experience. We would highly recommend a stay to both couples as to individuals visiting Curacao.

    I think this is best hotel in Curaçao!It is sweet and charming, the rooms are very clean and well kept. It is comprised of several buildings within the property. Vivid colours both inside and outside of the rooms. Lots of lush foliage and very serene, literally perfect for retreating from busyness and embracing relaxation.It’s tucked in Kura Hulanda village so there’s plenty to do and eat without walking more than 10 minutes but I recommend exploring nearby neighbourhoods like Otrabanda (where the hotel is), Punda and Pietermaai which are all walking distanceWhat’s most memorable is the keen hospitality of the KB team. I felt welcomed throughout the duration of my stay, not just upon arrival. They happily answered every question I had and was consistently kind and helpful.Janette, Teresa, Disney, Darrel, Rosalita, and the young lady w the cute headscarf that complimented my crocs - you guys are amazing!My only regret is leaving such a good review bc now I risk KB not being available when I return!

    Stichting Koraalherstel Curaçao

    Helaas gaat het niet met alle delen van Curaçao’s koraalrif goed. Voor het herstel van koraal- en visgemeenschappen moeten obstakels worden overwonnen. Hier is voorlichting over het bovengenoemde knoeien met koralen van groot belang.

    De non-profit organisatie Reef Renewal Curaçao (voorheen bekend als de Coral Restoration Foundation Curaçao) zet zich in om het met uitsterven bedreigde deel van Curaçao’s koraalrif op te schalen en het bewustzijn over het belang van het zeeleven te vergroten.

    Bewustwording van het belang van koralen.

    Herstel van het rifsysteem in ondiep water, publieke voorlichting en behoud van de natuurlijke ecosystemen van Curaçao zijn de belangrijkste doelstellingen van dit programma.

    Daarom is het doel van Reef Renewal Curaçao om het behoud van koraalriffen en het rentmeesterschap van de oceanen centraal te stellen in de cultuur van Curaçao. Bijgevolg worden de riffen in ondiep water niet langer bedreigd.

    Het koraalrif van Curaçao is belangrijk voor verschillende dingen. Van kustverdediging en voedsel tot begeerde toeristische dollars. Het koraalrif van Curaçao is van vitaal belang voor de economie en infrastructuur van het eiland. Menselijke activiteiten vormen echter een ernstige bedreiging voor deze riffen, en herstel van de riffen is slechts een deel van het antwoord.

    Reef Renewal Curaçao heeft de hulp nodig van veel verschillende particuliere partijen naast de steun van de overheid om samen te werken aan een succesvol herstel van het koraalrif.

    Hoe werkt koraalrestauratie eigenlijk?

    Reef Renewal Curaçao begint met rifherstel door delen van Elkhorn en Staghorn koralen te laten groeien op koraalbomen. Een voordeel van deze koraalherstelmethode is de snelheid waarmee koralen kunnen worden gekweekt, die aanzienlijk groter is dan in het wild. De koralen blijven drijven in de waterkolom, waar ze een constante toevoer van voedingsstoffen krijgen en ook dichter bij de zon worden gebracht. Deze twee omstandigheden zijn ideaal voor de ontwikkeling van het koraalrif van Curaçao.

    coral restoration curacao

    Curaçao heeft verschillende koraalboerderijen

    Een koraalkwekerij is een groepering van vier of meer van deze koraalbomen. Acht kwekerijen met in totaal vijfenvijftig bomen staan verspreid over het eiland Curaçao. U kunt ook een koraalboom adopteren voor koraalherstel en het behoud van Curaçao’s koraalrif! Deze zal gelabeld zijn met jouw naam erop.

    Bij Baoase Luxury Resort, Avila Beach Hotel, Kontiki Beach Resort, Lions Dive Beach Resort bij Mambo Beach, Marie Pampoen en Eel Valley onderhoudt Reef Renewal Curaçao actieve Staghorn kwekerijen.

    De koralen kunnen worden vrijgelaten na zes tot negen maanden, wanneer ze de ideale grootte hebben bereikt. Tijdens het transplanteren worden de koralen weer aan het rif bevestigd, zodat ze kunnen rijpen en zich kunnen voortplanten.
