Shete Boka Park
In Shete Boka National Park the waves pound against the coral rock formations and the salt water splashes high into the air. Walk to cliff-like coves of the sea. See the natural bridge, experience the shooting sound of Boka Pistol and enter the famous Boka Tabla cave.
The Shete Boka National Park is an area adjoining the Christoffel Park covering more than 10 kilometers of the rocky wave-exposed north coast of the island and has approximately 10 pocket bays where 3 species of sea turtles are known to lay eggs.
The park begins at stunning Boka Tabla, where huge waves thunder into an underground cavern. Steps cut into the rocks lead you directly into the mouth of the cavern; you can sit on the very edge and watch the surf roll in. After you peek inside the cavern you can walk along the limestone bluffs above for a spectacular view of Curacaos rugged north coast. The inlets in the park are protected turtle breeding areas.
There are also 2 hiking trails in the park:
Boka Pistol Trail: includes a 1 hour walk leading through Boka Kalki where sea turtles are sometimes seen to lay their eggs. Boka Pistol, where huge waves burst into the sky with gunfire like explosions and panoramic views from the flat limestone hills.
Boka Wandomi Trail: a 1 hour walk along rolling lava hills down to Boka Wandomi and the limestone bluffs to a natural bridge. A short walk along the rugged north coast will bring you back to Boka Tabla.
