near Boca St. Michiel (Curacao)

Leaving from Boka Sami, there's a perfect little circular hike leading around the lagoon and salt flats of St. Michiel, and up to the top of Michielsberg. It's an easy walk, about five kilometers long, and shows off some of Curaçao's diverse nature.

For the most part, the path hems close to the water. This lagoon is no longer used to manufacture salt, but the rectangular lines of the former beds are still visible. Today, the only ones making use of the flats are flamingos, a large group of which can usually be seen here.

he best part of the hike is the climb up the hill known as Michielsberg. During the ascent, you're shielded from the wind, making it a sweaty slog, but the view from the top is worth it.

This is a simple, hassle-free hike, which takes about 90 minutes to complete. And afterwards, you can take a post-hike swim in Boka Sami.
