Our ATV tour shows us everything we wanted to see on the island! This was a stunning site; I highly recommend visiting with your camera!

Shete Boka was a part of our tour with Irie tours and it was a great experience. We went down to one of the caves (but not too close) and then up to the observation point to watch the waves crashing. We were at other beaches that were calm like a lake before coming here and to see the difference... More

We rented a car for our trip, so we made a point of coming to visit this park while on Curacao. We thought the giant waves and scenery was really magnificent to see, and completely worth the 45 minute drive from our hotel. My recommendation go early (before it gets to hot) and combine it with a trip to one... More

When you visit Curacao, you should absolutely take the trip to Shete Boka. It is so scenic and beautiful! It is best to take a car, so you can drive from site to site.

If you like nature, you will enjoy this. There are a lot of natural formations caused by erosion, very picturesque and there is the blow hole that you can view from a few angles. The height was at least 30 feet at times. There is some walking required and it's pretty rugged, so be prepared. We enjoyed our trip there... More

From the Punda area, we drove about 1:30 to the northern point of the island to reach this spot. It was picturesque although a bit much for my children. It was incredibly hot/dry and slighlty dangerous in spots where there were steps carved into the rocks (only for a 5 year old - most people would be fine). My son... More

There's nothing more relaxing than watching turqoise water from the ocean slam into the rocks with a force that you can only imagine. There were three areas we went to. First the one straight from where you pay (pretty cheap $USD11) where you can stand on an observation deck and go down to stand on a cove beach and watch... More

We drove 45 minutes to get to the park, Yes it was picturesque, but it was coral cliffs with breakers and not much that was exceptional or unique.

lots of wind and crashing surf. Blowholes along the cliffs. I think there is an entrance fee but our's was included in an island tour fee. Facilities are a bit rustic.

It is great place to visit. I would recommend it as part of island tour. It is beautiful, but I would not spent too much time there, if you only on the island for few hours.
