Fort Amsterdam places of interest Once the seat of power in the Netherlands Antilles, Fort Amsterdam was built at the end of Sint Annabaai Channel, on the point, at the mouth of the harbor. Today, as well as being the Governor’s Palace, the fort also contains a complex which is home to shops and restaurants. Queen Juliana Bridge, Willemstad The Queen Juliana Bridge in Willemstad overlooks not only Willemstad but also St. Anna Bay. The bridge, at 185 feet, is one of the tallest bridges in the world and is certainly the tallest bridge in the Caribbean. The bridge is worth visiting even though, currently, the observation platform is closed to pedestrians. Photo Credit: Leamer
