The single most frequent recommendation you probably get when asking about restaurants, fun nightlife and place to go in Curacao is probably Mambo Boulevard strip Curacao. This is a strip that combines hotels, shopping, dining, nice beaches and night life.
Mambo Boulevard strip or Mambo BLVD consists of a lower or beach level and an upper level connecting different beach resort area to each other by a common 2 levels board walk. The connected beach clubs and Hotels are Sea Aquarium, Lions Dive, Madero Ocean Club, Wet & Wild, Bonita, Rilèks, Kontiki Beach resort, Cabana Beach. All have their own beach activities, shopping boutiques, chairs, umbrellas and sunbed rentals and night life.
There are more than 50 shops at the strip offering all you need: Beauty & Health, Fashion, Jewelry, Rentals, Souvenirs and Giftshop, Tours & Excursions and of course lots of food & beverages shops.
The location of Mambo strip in Curacao is adjacent to Sea Aquarium.
To get there from Villa Sea Paradise you just take the Caracasbaai road to Willemstad and just after passing Luna Park turn left in Schubappelweg. Follow this street passing Vreugdenhil Supermarket at your left and at the T-Junction turn right into the street named: Amandelweg. Follow straight until a big intersection with in front of you painted Baracudas on the wall. There turn left into Koraalspechtweg and then go straight until the end of the road. There with Sunscape hotel in front, turn left again into Bapor Kibra street and follow the signs to Mambo Boulevard Curacao at your righthand side.
They have plenty of free parking.
This beach area is a place where I once came for a swim when I was young.
We called it “Bapor Kibra” which means “Broken Ship.” A ship sunk and was broken in two or more parts and brought to shore by the waves where it remained for years. The sea water there was very clear. I remember while snorkeling in 1966 I saw something was blinking in the sand and it was a golden ring, which someone probably lost some time before. I don’t remember what happened to it. This area is now developed and by placing wave breakers, calm sea water is achieved along a 160 m long sandy beach as we have today.
One of our favorite restaurants located on the upper level is the Green House Restaurant. Every Monday and Thursday they offer “all you can eat sushi” for Naf. 35. Their Blue Flame Beef Tenderloin is so tender it will melt on your tongue. Costs $ 27. They also offer local Curacao food. Try their Stew of goat called Kabritu Stobá, which is very tasty for $ 17.
Pizza Mare is often recommended if you prefer Italian cuisine.
Chill Beach Bar & Grill is located at Lions Dive & Beach Resort. Chill offers at noon delicious BBQ-meals.
There are several other restaurants such as El Grill & Mexicano, Bocas Argentinian Steaks and Origami Sushi at the Mambo boulevard strip Curacao.
There will be also DJ set ups on the beach, live music, lots of dancing going on in the evening.
A good discount on alcoholic beverages is obtainable during Happy Hours.
Chill & Grill offers Happy Hour every Friday from 17:00-19:00. Bonita Beach Club also offers Happy Hour every Friday but also on Sundays.
A great advantage of Mambo boulevard strip Curacao is that it offers free Wifi all over the place!
For night life you can go to Hemingway, Madero Ocean Club Wet & Wild, and Cabana Beach.
The best time to go there is on a Friday evening, Saturday evening, or Sunday evening. We usually start at Hemingway (bar & restaurant at Lions Dive & Beach Resort) with live music where you can dance and then slowly move westward around 9 PM, as most people moves to the nearby Madero Ocean Club, Wet & Wild, and Cabana Beach.
At Cabana Beacha good friend of us usually plays piano to entertain guests of as shown here on the photo.
He is one of the best performers on the Island with years of dedication to bring joy with his music. He plays all kinds of genres, from modern to oldies, Salsa, Bachatta, Merengue, Soft, you name it. As a former Crazy Piano’s artist, you could shout any name of a song he plays it instantaneously.
Check also the special nightlife events going on at Madero Ocean Club! They have a huge main stage and host all kind of events from concerts to parties and fashion shows.
Curaçao Sea Aquarium is also located nearby. It is next to Lions Dive. It belongs from its beginning in 1984, to one of the most special aquaria in the world. Here various sea life is kept in a habitat that is almost natural to them, without sophisticated technical equipment. With the use of open-water system all the aquaria are in immediate contact with the open sea. That‘s what is making it so special.
There are dolphins, sea lions, small sharks, flamingos, sea turtles and stingrays all in their own aquariums and water tanks or in closed parts in the sea. So why not just walk from Mambo to there. From the outside you can see the sea lions swimming around. Or you pay the entrance fee of US $ 21 for adults $ 11 for children from 4 years and you walk in.
There are a number of shows and activities throughout the day, feeding the little sharks and the flamingos and the dolphin show. Or you go for a kiss from the sea lions and / or dolphins with a beautiful photo taken as a reminder. If you are very “brave” you can even go swimming with the dolphins.
Mambo boulevard strip Curacao and their neighbors have so much to offer and the activities are too many to mention.
We did not even mention the water activities such as the substation submarine tour near sea aquarium.
Is expensive but the experience is worth it if we may believe the reviews.
