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.

when you visit Curacao, it is a good idea to visit Shete Boka National Park, to get a better view of the island's geology. While walking the 7 bays ( Shete Boka) nature lovers will have a great time seeing how the island once formed from lava, leaving numerous terraces in the sea, where the trade winds play havoc with...

A nice getaway from the touristy beaches. Great opportunities for pictures and a nice easy hike. I highly recommend the cave and Boka Pistol.

Impressive display of the oceans majestic waves. Very hot on this side of the island, so recommend that you visit in the morning or evening hours. Make sure you don't skip Pistol Boka!

VERY natural, not much human intervention here. The water is beautiful, the rocks are beautiful, the trees with their twisted roots above ground were beautiful, and the shells were beautiful! We loved this place.

gorgeous views but bring your walking shoes as flip flops make it hard to wander around easily. Little cover as well so make sure you bring a hat when you get out near the edges

On Curaçao’s North-East coast the ocean swell comes rolling in, driven along by the ever-blowing trade winds. This in itself will give you some spectacular sights, but in addition the rocky coast is laced with small inlets. The waves run into these, gaining height as they go along. The best place to go is Boca Pistol. Here, the inlet narrows... More
