Whether you want to relax in a quiet, peaceful oasis at home, or enjoy the many day-time activities and vibrant night-life offered by Curacao, everything is a short walk or drive away. If you want to go to the beach then the new beaches of Jan Thiel, including those of Papagayo or the beach of Zanzibar, are all within a few minutes walking distance, at the western end of this gated community. There you will also find 7 restaurants, a scuba diving center and various shops. Nearby activities include windsurfing, horseback riding, jet ski and ATV rentals, and biking. The quaint downtown area of Willemstad, with its historic forts, sidewalk cafes and floating markets, is only a 15 minute drive away.
There is a full, well-equipped gym, and sauna, within a few minutes' walk (usage charges are extra).
