    A favorite party and hang-out oasis for locals and Dutch visitors, Jan Thiel Beach is crammed with sun-lounging beautiful people by day and die-hard partiers by night. And there's lots to keep them sated and entertained day and night with five beach bar/restaurants of different themes all side by side, or steps from each other, and each with their own music or DJ nights. Pastimes include great swimming and snorkeling on their house reef and lively games of beach tennis and volleyball.

    There's something for sunbathers, swimmers, shoppers, partiers, and foodies of all ages at Mambo Beach Boulevard's two-story seafront complex beside the Sea Aquarium Beach and Park. There's also an amusement park–style ride and a roster of special events throughout the year. This is also the place where locals and visitors alike let loose on weekend nights and where they sunbathe and swim during the day.

    This Thursday-night Punda festival takes place in the area around the Queen Emma Bridge, as well as nearby backstreets, alleys, and the Gomezplein square. Happy-hour celebrations begin as early as 4 pm in the resident bars, but things really kick into high gear around 6 pm, when musicians, dancers, arts-and-crafts kiosks, food stalls, pop-up bars, and even a temporary children’s playground transform the entire neighborhood into a fabulous alfresco party. Stores in the area also stay open late. The magical evening culminates at around 8 pm, with a fireworks display over the harbor.

    Curaçao is addicted to jazz, and there are many live jazz festivals throughout the year, but if you really want to get into the swing of it any night of the week, head to Miles Jazz Vinyl and Cigars Cafe. Named after the legendary musician Miles Davis, it's a cool little getaway in the heart of Pietermaai where you can hear jazz played on vinyl, play board games, and have a cigar and a drink. Local musicians occasionally stop by to jam as well.

    Part of the Saint Tropez Suites resort in Pietermaai, this unique day club is where French Riviera–style meets Dutch Caribbean cool. A gorgeous infinity pool crests a rocky coast with crashing waves and is surrounded by plush daybeds, private cabanas, and loungers. A trendy bar and open-air dining spot serves small bites and full lunch, and there’s also surf-side bottle service and tapas by the pool. Access is free to resort guests, and some neighboring hotels also have complimentary access; others must buy a pass. At night, it morphs into a cool open-air lounge and dinner spot often featuring hot DJs and special events.
