The pontoon bridge is Curacao’s most famous bridge
If you have ever seen photos of Curacao, you most likely have seen the pontoon bridge (which is actually called the Queen Emma Bridge). It is one of the most famous and popular attractions of Curacao. The floating pontoon bridge connects two districts – Punda and Otrobanda – of Willemstad, the capital of Curacao.
The pontoon bridge opens several times per day to let ships pass, and this is done in quite a unique way. The pontoon bridge gets moved entirely to one side of the canal, placing it sideways. This is amazing to see and won’t bother you at all; when the bridge is open, you can use a free ferry to cross the water.
