  • Impressive, well-groomed paths. Sturdy shoes. Ever take enough water with it. Cave is impressive, you might almost.

  • Walk created by what at times seems a lunar landscape. Because the wind is pretty much feels it's not too hot. We can enjoy being long to look at how the water hits the rocks. Very exciting and soothing. If you like, is it really a must.

  • Wonderful to the power of the wild to see water sloshing against the rocks. If you are on Curacao you should have seen that once

  • Beutifull park and worth the trip. Wear footwear with sure footing.
  • Really wonderful to see nature in her full force. There's multiple inlets/bokas.
  • Don't miss this place. It is amazing, almost hypnotizing, to watch the powerful waves explode against the rocks.
  • This is a must see for natures lovers. Curacao is a small island, but the landscape varies so much from region to region.
  • Very few amenities, but the crashing waves are not to be missed. You'll walk out to Boca Tabla, and take a long, sunny walk to the natural bridge. There is a sandy area below where they say the turtles lay their eggs. We retraced our steps and went back past Boca Tabla to get back to the car, rather than use the circle trail. You can use the (very poor) road to get to Boca Pistol, and it is well worth the short, bumpy ride. A little too far to walk to. Don't miss this! I was saying "wow" almost as if I was at a fireworks display. $12.00 entrance fee is worth it. There are rest rooms and a snack bar.
