We spent the afternoon here after snorkeling and it was slightly overcast which actually ended up being perfect. There was a major low pressure system moving through and so the waves were especially large and impressive. There is usually a small concession stand at the entrance you can grab a drink and/or snack on the way in (you definitely want... More

Put on some good hiking shoes or good sneakers and enjoy! Curacao at it's best! Please keep our island clean, and don't be throwing your empty water bottles all over the place. Thank you!

This national park is a must on a trip to Curacao. To walk on volcanic rock knowing that all of this came from a volcano under the ocean was absolutely spell binding as I had never seen volcanic rock of this magnitude much less walked on it before. This area of Curacao is so beautiful as you watch the waves... More

We stumbled upon this while taking a drive around the island. From the natural bridge, to the Boka Pistol, to the Cave, there is definitely a lot to see that's worth seeing. The cave is beautiful and the Pistol is quite unique. Best advice, bring small bills as there is admission into the park plus a small food and drink... More

The sound of the waves is always calming and the crash of the water against the rocks is quite exhilarating. The map is a nice souvenir but is not wholly necessary. It did ensure that we found each spot. My son loved the lizards racing from our footsteps. I enjoyed relaxing in the shade of an overhanging rock while looking... More

This place should be visited while in Curacao. This is basically 4 different areas. The best one is underwater cave - you can get in to it and Pistol.

I have to say, we were really nervous about renting a car and driving to Shete Boka. There are no legible street signs but once you get on the right road you are on your way. Once you get to the park, there is an entrance fee but then you are free to walk or partially drive to all the... More

A beautiful park. Admission fee is $6.00 per person but is worth it. See waves crashing against the rocks and check out the cave on the left of the path. Very hot during the summer months. Best to visit early in morning.

The waves are just crashing against the rocky coast. They have a natural bridge and a cave that leads down to the ocean. This was a great adventure for a couple hours of your day. They have maps they hand out at the gate to tell you how to get to each special point.
