Hiking the Tafelberg as the sunsets and at night is a must-do here in Curaçao. Take part in this weekly hike and discover a marvelous view.
The tour is every Sunday around 16:30, depending on the season. The starting point is the RCC Shop at the Santa Barbara Plantation, so when your group is complete, the hike starts immediately. There are three water breaks in total. The schedule is coordinated in a certain way that the hikers reach the top of the Tafelberg right before the sunset. Thereafter you enjoy the view at the Proa lookout point during the sunset.
After the sun goes down, the hike goes on. The way back is not the same trail as the way up. When the time is right, the guide will ask the participants to put and turn on their headlamps. The hike takes around 3-3.5 hours in total. The length of the trail is 8.5 km/5.3 miles.
Every healthy person without injuries can do this hike. Some parts are more challenging than other parts, as you can see in the pictures.
