Things to do near St. Joris bay

I was asked to do an Inhouse workshop Excel on Curaçao for the employees of Serena Factory. Not knowing exactly where I had to be, I googled it. It was near St. Joris bay, a nice bay at the east of Curaçao. Not a beach bay, but a natural bay with lot of wind. Ideal for surfing. It is not very touristic yet, but a good place to see. In the future probably, more tourist will go there, because there are a few touristic attractions in the neighborhood.

Ostrich are not originally from Curaçao, but you can visit a farm near St. Joris bay. You can get a tour in an old truck over the farm and see all the stages of ostriches growing up. You can also feed the Ostriches and stand on a real egg. Those eggs are very hard and can hold a lot of weight.
