CARIBBEAN PART OF THE KINGDOM

The Kingdom of the Netherlands

You hear about the Caribbean Netherlands or the Caribbean part of the Kingdom. But what about the islands in the Caribbean? What islands belong to the kingdom and what is their status with the Netherlands?

Which islands are a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands?
The Kingdom of the Netherlands consists of 4 countries: The Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten. BonaireSt. Eustatius and Saba have a separate status within the Netherlands. Together they are called the Caribbean Netherlands. Together with the countries of Aruba, Curacao and St. Maarten, they form the Caribbean part of the Kingdom.

The Caribbean part of the Kingdom thus consists of:

  • The countries of Aruba, Curaçao and St. Maarten
  • The 3 public entities (special municipalities of the Netherlands) are Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba. 

If you add to the Caribbean part of the Kingdom also the Netherlands then together this is called the Kingdom of the Netherlands. King Willem-Alexander is therefore not only head of state of the Netherlands but also of the Caribbean part of the Kingdom. 

Caribbean Tours currently only offers tours, tickets and activities in Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao, the so called ABC-islands. In the near future we will further expand our offer with also the other islands that are part of the Caribbean part of the Kingdom.
