Visiting island with Cruise

We'll be on the island from 7am till 6pm Feb 10... What's on the island to see that I can't miss?

We like to relaxe on nice beach but also walk around and visit. We are a couple in the late 20s!

I would love to get a good taste of the island ;-)

Thanks

For starters check out cruisecritic.com, . maybe rent a car and go west, beautiful beaches, come back and walk around Willemstad, shop, eat and drink. There are a few museums to check out.

On the Western side there are numerous great beaches. You can check out Porto Marie beach, Cas Abao, Knip.. Can't go wrong with either of those.

Try to go to the beach as early as possible and you'll have plenty of time to come back and walk around/shop downtown.

Have a great cruise!

I agree with the above.....rent a car and head west.....come back in the afternoon and walk around town. Get off the ship ASAP and be the first on the car rental line (I think Avis is right there but that was a few years ago)- make sure you have a car reserved. When we did that there was a long, fairly slow line behind us...glad we were first out and didn't waste time.
