Many destinations around the world boast spectacular landscapes or seascapes, yet how many offer both?
If you’re looking for the perfect land and sea combo destination, narrow down the search initially by looking at Caribbean islands, many of which offer a nice blend of the two landscapes.
But does that really narrow down the search much? Considering there are hundreds of islands in the region, one’s search is hardly narrowed down.
Let us offer up our little slice of paradise as a consideration for your next getaway – Curaçao. Curaçao itself has a pristine coastline as well as unique and diverse landscapes.
Getting even more specific, there’s one coastal resort on the island that boasts 2,000 acres of land all to itself.
Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort is truly a destination of its own, perfect for exploring the watery depths of the Caribbean Sea and trekking across the island’s diverse Caribbean landscapes.
It can be enjoyable to rent a car, map the route and research the adventures and journeys ahead. But, often times with the busy pace of everyday life, it’s nice to retreat somewhere where everything you’d like to do and see is conveniently located nearby. That’s exactly the experience you’ll have at Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort.
If that sounds magnificent, just wait until you get a quick synopsis of everything visitors can see and do on the resort grounds.
Wetter is Better
Curaçao loves its water activities, and Santa Barbara offers them all. The expansive beachfront resort has the ocean, bay and pool(s) to satisfy your every watery need. You can expect to participate in any of the following:
- Sailing Adventures
- Scuba training or individual excursions
- Kayaking and Stand-Up Paddleboarding
- Lounging beachside, bayside or poolside
- Swimming in your choice of pool, ocean or bay
For When You’d Rather be Dry
There’s much more to the Caribbean than beautiful coast lines! Santa Barbara used to be a plantation back in the day, and as such the resort sits on the original 2,000 acres of beautiful land. Explore on your own or ask for a guided tour from a friendly staff member. With 2,000 acres at your disposal it’s unlikely you’ll run out of places to venture to. We suggest trying:
- Mountain bike tours, rentals and trails
- The only hydro-grid clay tennis court in the Caribbean
- Pete Dye’s Old Quarry golf course – one of the best in the Caribbean
- Historic Well Tour -discover the island’s first freshwater well
We could say it’s non-stop adventure at Santa Barbara but that wouldn’t be altogether accurate.
The truth is, Santa Barbara offers the option for non-stop adventure, but there’s also the option for complete and utter relaxation. You don’t have to do it all or see it all each day, or even in a single visit. Find peace of mind knowing that every desired activity is within easy reach, but so is the option to do absolutely nothing other than bask in the peaceful serenity of the island.
