Distance from Cruise port to Willemstad Trolley train.

Is it possible to walk from the cruise port to the trolley and to the town area? Also is there public transportation to a local beach?

Easy walk - the trolley leaves from the front of the plaza hotel area I believe.

If you come into the mega pier, you have to go through the riffort and over the queen emma pontoon bridge, then it is on the right.

If you come into the other pier, then walk over the bridge from the other direction.

Ships will be docking on the 'other' side of downtown Willemstad. Mega pier is oceanside of the pontoon bridge and the other pier is inner of the bridge if that makes any sense at all LOL

The piers are on the otrabunda side of the bridge and downtown is on the punda side

Thanks for the info. I take it from what I have read that it is not possible to walk over the Queen Juliana bridge. Is there public transportation (local bus) to nearby beaches?

You are not allowed to walk over the Queen Juliana Bridge as it is very dangerous.

Best beach to go is seaaquarium beach/Mambo and Cabana Beach

You can walk over to Punda over the pontoon bridge. Walk to the post office there where there are buses waiting.Take line line 6A from Punda post office - Orajenstraat - Seaquarium. Mambo beach bus stop must be between Breezes hotel and Seaquarium. Best ask busdriver. Bus ticket 1,60 Nafl one way. You will also see some mini buses there and some will drive via Mambo beach.
