We went here by chance. We drove up from Willemstad and passed it on the way and do NOT regret stopping. The caves are easily missed so keep an eye out, you really don't want to miss them. You can do the walks in flip flops, but I would wear some sort of shoes, you dont need hiking boots as... More

We weren't planing on visiting this place, as its just waves right? No, multiple bokas/places to check out and very reasonable cost--wise. Got some great pics and spent over an hour here. Even went down in the cave as well to check it out....

The entrance fee goes to the nature preservation group of the island, security has been tightened and the sheer power of the north coast is amazing. Be sure to visit the cave, it can be slippery! Great for visiting with a group and now with the added security the peace of mind added is nice. There have been complaints before... More

This park is on the north coast of Curacao just past Christoffel Park when you're heading in the direction of Westpunt. Lovely spot to see the rough waters along the north coast. If you don't have a lot of time, head straight to Boka Pistol for house high sprays of water!

It´s really pretty and amazing the water hits the ground so hard that the wind splashes into you. The only thing that give me a great concern is that entering to the park is a warning sign that says you could be attacked and robbed. The lady says that this only happens at night when the park is closed. Besides... More

Beautiful coastline featuring bokas (inlets) where waves shoot into the air. Amazing rock formations and caves. Easy to drive to the various key points or nice flat hiking trails as well. Very nice way to spend an afternoon.

Beautiful park with lots to drive around and see and do! The place is not overfilled with tourists and it is right near other attractions such as the Christoffel park!

Shete Boka is a magnificent sight! It is quite a distance from many other sights in Curacao but it's WELL worth making the drive. We were there on a windy day (but hot and sunny) - which made the waves HUGE and the sights breathtaking. Do it! Enjoy!

The park is a must see - just standing watching the water crashing against the rock was mesmerizing. Caves were unbelievable. Hearing the story of the Boca Table was very interesting. We would definitely visit again.
