Had to cross the bridge on a number of occasions, trips from & to airport, island excursion etc. Has an overall view of the city and harbour, so a good photo opportunity.

Driving across the Queen Juliana Bridge offers passengers (drivers keep your eyes on the road and the traffic) The best view of colorful downtown Willemstad. Both the Punda, and the Otrabanda are easy to view. The inner port is visible on the inland side.

We also came in under the bridge in our yacht so we've seen it from the water too. we also walked both sides of the harbour where you see the bridge and its high... More

An impressive bit of engineering within the capital. It can easily be seen from the main harbour area. Walking to it would take some time. Best option being a taxi.

This bridge stands high above Willemstad, joining the two sides of the river. Lovely views of the harbour, the city and the oil refinery!

A beautiful structure arcing over Old Willemstad. It connects the 2 sides of the city in a dramatic way. Kind of scary when you drive over as it is so high and the side rails are low. The views for passengers are incredible. If you are driving look straight ahead and if you are a passenger have your camera ready.... More

We drove over this bridge while on an island tour. It's very high to let ships pass under into the harbor, so the view is magnificent.

This bridge connects Willemstad and Punda. It is very high and spans the channel to the large harbor accessible for all types of tankers.

We traversed this bridge during our tour of the island. It provided great views from the top. To the west was the water with awesome views of the blue water. To the east, the oil refineries of the island. It was also visible from the Queen Emma bridge.
