Spanish Water offers a variety of natural features, from mountains to islands. There is also a diversity of animals, such as sea turtles and water birds. Spanish Water has a lot to offer, and the best way to explore this offering is undoubtedly with a Tiki boat!
Along the coast of Spanish Water, various mountains can be seen, including Kabrietenberg. “Kabriet” means ‘goat’ in Papiamento, and this mountain is 78 meters high. This mountain can also be climbed.
Another mountain that is clearly visible from Spanish Water is Table Mountain, located to the east near Santa Barbara Beach. The mountain is named for its large flat top, which is scraped off for building material. Table Mountain is 196 meters high and easily visible from a Tiki boat.
