The bridge is colorfully lit up and makes for great photos with the dutch style buildings along the shore way. You are allowed to stay on the bridge when it moves to open for ships to pass. It was a unique experience.

I think it is probably the backdrop for some of the best, iconic photos on the island. You need to walk the bridge at least once if you are visiting downtown. This pontoon (floating bridge) connects the Punda and Otrabanda sides of downtown over the...More

This floating bridge opens on a regular basis to allow ships to pass into the harbour. You can stay o the bridge as it opens and closes.

You need to walk the bridge at least once if you are visiting downtown. Clever and strange floating movable bridge was developed to bridge the two sides of downtown, still works several times a day to let boats pass. Worth the walk across the bridge.

We drove across this bridge while taking a local tour (Ben Tours n.v.) and it afforded us some beautiful views since it goes up so high. We could also see this bridge from our cruise ship balcony while docked in Willemstad.

A floating bridge at the entrance to the harbor that swings open to allow ships (including cruise ships) to come into the harbor it is festooned with lit arches and is spectacular at night.
