It's a nice park with amazing view of the sea, you have to go inside the cave and walk to the natural bridge, take a bath in the beach close to the natural bridge. Don't forget to carry water.

Beautiful and dramatic views of the West coast with huge waves. There are many walking trails or you can drive from point to point. Wear good closed toe shoes. There are sharp rocks and other dangers. The Natural Arch and Boka Pistol are my favorites. The Boka Pistol got it's name because the crashing waved were supposed to sound like... More

The paths to the ocean are well marked small gravel - but once you get to the edge, the coral is rough, uneven, and could be an ankle twister if you aren't careful. Some areas have stairs, steep and cut into the rock. Well worth the trip to the "non beach" side of the country.

We went there as part of a tour! The view is gorgeous and just hearing the water hitting the rocks is pretty relaxing. The whole place has a peaceful atmosphere around it! Nice spot for pictures!

This was a nice park. I wish they had seating so you could enjoy the surroundings longer. There are tons of rocks and many people wrote there names with the rocks. Cool Place

We decided to go here to check out the caves and water shooting up the cliffs! It is a short walk to the different areas and we found it to be fascinating! The way the water hits the rocks and shoots up was awesome and we got some cool pics from it. Our son really enjoyed it and thought it... More

Beautiful park with lava flows and amazing coves. Boca Pistol has amazing water spouts that shoot way up in the air. Great place for local food too!

We had a great time hiking in this park while we were on vacation in October 2012. The natural blow hole was great to watch, and the park is right on the cliffs overlooking the ocean! We hiked many trails and had a blast doing so!

We rented a car to tour the west end of the island. The fee for the park is $5.50 per person and $1 for map. TIP: Buy the map, there are no real roads and we basically followed the tire marks in front of us until we reached landmarks on the map. We wanted to see two particular sites in... More
