Discover the beautiful pink flamingos on the island of Curaçao
Search no longer! You can see flamingos on Curacao! On vacation you will see at least 10 inflatable flamingos per beach, but on Curacao you will also find the beautiful real pink flamingos. Curacao has the most flamingos in the world. Just 20 minutes away from the BOHO hotel you can admire these beautiful pink animals. They live in the wild, but you are guaranteed to see them!
Why are flamingos pink?
Did you know that flamingos get the color from the food they eat. When there is insufficient food, or when they ingest food that contains no or less carotenoid substances, the pink color of the plumage can then become paler. You are what you eat! That certainly applies to the flamingo!
Where on Curacao can you see flamingos?
You can see flamingos in two places on Curaçao: at St. Michael's Bay and at the salt pans of Jan Kok in St. Willibrordus, also called the saliña of Rif-Sint Marie. If you drive from Willemstad toward Willibrordus, you can watch the beautiful animals along the road.
