Curaçao Ports Authority Video Highlights St. Anna Bay and Waaigat Development

The Curaçao Ports Authority has produced a video that highlights its planned transformation of St. Anna Bay and Waaigat into a compelling sequence of places for residents and visitors alike. The port authority’s approach offers a balanced development approach, integrating retail, office, maritime, arts and park uses, which, working together, will promote extended live, work and recreational pursuits by residents and visitors. It provides a template for each location to develop a unique identity tied back to its surrounding community while also offering elements and infrastructure that provide a complete, connected waterfront experience for users.

The master plan for St. Anna Bay holds true to its roots, supporting a number of existing maritime activities while introducing new ones in several locations. Mathey Wharf continues to welcome cruise homeport and port-of-call operations as well as visits by other vessels. Scharloo and Kleine Wharfs open up for yachting and other small leisure craft activities. Waaigat lagoon is enhanced through the introduction of a marina facility supporting between 30 and 50 slips. The North End remains focused on petroleum and marine industrial operations, with new enhancements offered to bolster these activities.
