A sixty-six-foot lighthouse tower is the chief landmark on this small islet off Curaçao’s southeastern tip. Once used as a quarantine station for enslaved Africans, later mined for phosphates, Klein Curaçao — flat and relatively barren — is today a popular spot for day-trippers, thanks to its pristine surrounding waters and coral reefs, and expansive white-sand beaches.
