Boka Tabla 2

On the windswept, wave-exposed northeastern shore of Curaçao lies a national park that offers a beautiful respite from the beaches and shopping. This more than 10 km of rugged limestone bluffs makes for a beautiful, well marked easy hike on the north shore of the island. The entrance point is Boka Tabla, where you can park your car close to the thunderous wave- crashing action and grab a map to start your adventure. The paths are well marked and the trails easy to follow. Just make sure you wear something more than flip-flops should you want to explore a little. Walk around the inlets where three types of turtles lay their eggs.

Sit on one of the well-built wooden decks to feel the wind and listen and watch the intoxicating methodical crashing of the waves bursting into the air with explosive fury. Walk down the steps carved into the rocks and watch the surf roll in.

If you are not interested in walking all that much, the roads are designed to accommodate your vehicle and you can reduce your travel time between the Bokas by commuting to the individual landmarks.
