Shete Boka National Park, Curacao

Happy Mother's Day!!

For my Scenic Sunday I thought I would share some of the island of Curacao and the scenes we saw while sightseeing.
During our Curacao vacation we visited the Shete Boka National Park. The park is located on the rocky north coast of the island. Some of the highlights were seeing the blowhole, a natural bridge and a cave.

Huge waves crash onto the coast and thunder into an underground cavern. Hubby the spleunker went down  into the cave and took some photos.


The cave area was called Boka Tabla.




This area is called Boka Kalki

 The waves would crash onto the rocky coast and some waves would find there way out of a hole or opening.

Above is a view of the rocky coastline, I love the gorgeous blue colored water.


Some waves were bigger than others and the water would really splash up high. I believe this one was named Boka Pistol.

Sea turtles are known to lay their egg on the various inlets and beaches at Shete Boka.


Looks like a lot of the visitors have left their names written with rocks on the beach.


The Boka Wandomi was where the natural bridge was located.

I hope you enjoyed my visit to the Shete Boka Nat'l Park in Curaco.  To see more beautiful and wonderful scenes from around the world please visit Scenic Sunday. Thanks to the Holley's for hosting Scenic Sunday and thank you for visiting my post.

    1. Diane, Curacao is one of the ABC island in the southern Caribbean. Along with Aruba and Bonarire, also called the Dutch Antilles. 40 miles off the coast of Venezuela.

  3. Wow, that's a dramatic coastline. But even as a caver I wouldn't go in one near the sea. Yet I could watch those waves and blow holes of aqua waters for a while.

    I like the rock graffiti, harmless and moveable.

    Gorgeous place.
