In Willemstad itself you've got the historic neighbourhoods of Punda and Otrabanda, devided from each other by the St. Anna Bay.

The elegant Queen Emma Bridge connects the two city sides together. It is a pleasant walk accorss the bridge as you feel the caribbean breeze and marvel at the reflections of the lights in the ocean. At the other side of Willemstad, Otrabanda (otra = other, banda = side), the imposing Rif Fort houses the Renaissance Mall with several restaurants as well as a Sushi Restaurant.
