Drinking water

Water on Curacao

The tap water on Curacao tastes good and is safe to drink. The natural freshwater basins do not contain enough water to supply everyone on the island, therefore seawater has long been distilled. This process costs a lot of energy and money, so you are kindly asked by the local government to be economical with water.

Tap water is distilled directly from the sea, it tastes good and can be used as drinking water right from the tap.
