Willemstad Port (Port Code: NLWIL) is a natural deep-water port on the southwestern coast of Curacao. Willemstad's harbour is one of the largest oil handling ports in the Caribbean. The entrance channel to this port, the St. Anna Bay, is situated in Willemstad, the capital of Curaçao. Cruise ships and other vessels dock at the Megapier Cruise Terminal at the entrance of the bay and at (cruise) terminals located at the Otrobanda side of the bay. At the end of its entry lies the Schottegat area, which houses the main facilities of the port including the region’s largest oil refinery and dry-dock, an economic zone area, the container terminal and cargo wharves. Curacao's economy is largely based on tourism. Willemstad Port is a cruise port which handles around 1/4 of all ship calls in high season.
