This is a must see. The bocas are phenomenal. The views of the mountains are breath taking. You can't miss seeing this if your in Curaçao.

Interesting little National Park along the northern shore of Curacao. 4 little areas to see - the pistol, sea water squirts into the air as it is arrives on the shore into a narrow rocky inlet. Boka Kalki, a little beach, Boka Wandomi - a natural bridge and where turtles lay their eggs and finally Boka Tabla - a cave.... More

the trip to this park is interesting experience as itself. You can see another side of the island and some local villages. the park is good: little bit of driving, little bit of walking. better go at morning; less people, not so hot.

The Atlantic Ocean crashes against a barrier of black sharp porous rock that forms this part of Curacao and sprays huge plumes of water into the air.

We decided to turn off the road as we were heading to Westpunt. What a pleasant surprise. The views of the north side of the island were great.

At an entry fee of $15.00 (US) per person you get to see barren rock, barren rock and a rocky coastline. This is at the far end of the island and isn't worth visiting at all let alone paying to visit. Just as a heads up the entry fee for most anything on the island is 15.00 per person.

My wife and I enjoyed all 4 major attractions at this national park. We took lots of pictures of each. We went for the shooting geiser, but found that the cave was super exciting.

This was my second visit to Shete Boka National Park and it’s always worth a trip. The “Boka Pistol” is incredible and beautiful! It’s definitely worth visiting while in Curacao. The entrance to the park is a little steep especially since I was only there my second time for a few moments.

The scenery here is amazing, just stand and watch the waves. You will need to carry water with you as there is a little bit of walking. You can also make this longer if you want to walk from area to area but you can go by car

When we got there, the signs said enter at our own risk. They wouldn't be responsable for anything lost or damage. We almost left, but then we decided to ask for information. The lady at the entrance said we had to pay $6 to enter. We could see a cave, rock formations, a natural fountain and bridge. They had bathrooms... More
