Curaçao is an island in the southern Caribbean Sea, off the Venezuelan coast. The Country  is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Curaçao is the largest and most populous of the three ABC islands (for Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao) of the Lesser Antilles, specifically the Leeward Antilles.  Its capital is Willemstad.

Sea Aquarium Beach is a beach  located to the south of Willemstad. The beach is named after Curaçao Sea Aquarium, located nearby. The aquarium is also unique because instead of a large filtration system it is actually maintained by the ocean. This aquarium has ocean rocks for walls and the ocean freely passes in and out the areas where the large fish are maintained.

With fantastic stamps!
