Description
Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao are enchanting islands. The first impressions are staggering. The hundred thousand tourists from Europe, the US and South America who annually visit the Dutch Caribbean will all agree. It all seems so hospitable and inviting from the air and from the water, that you can hardly wait to set foot on land. What is makes Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao so different from the other islands in the Caribbean? All of them offer to more or less equal degrees the charms that make this part of the world so beloved: golden beaches, waving palms, picturesque cottages, colorful salt plains, and temperatures that caress the skin. The secret lies in the palette of sparkling colours. Wherever you look, the Dutch Caribbean is a feast for the eye. More than two hundred beautiful coloured photographs give a helicopter view of these three island. Photographer Tomei has a preference for contrasts, the blue of the sea against the pastel tints of the beach or against the brightly colored houses and/or hotels.
