    A pleasant change and well worth a visit. For only 10 Nafl pp (€5,-) you'll see beautiful pieces of mother nature: natural bridge, cave sea views and a blow hole. The area is well worth it. We have spent 3 hours incl. a cola.

    On the heat of the day anyway. Splashing water was occasionally refreshing welcome. Wonderful to see the waves and how the rocks thrash.

    From the Jan Thiel Bay by car to drive on to West point after a beautiful beach with turtles (and lunch at the "famous" Jaanchies) drove to this impressive natural park. When paying at the entrance you will get a map. You can use the car park by this. You can then visit a number of sites, there to park the car and then on foot for hiking (and pictures!). The waves beech on the coast. The rugged "Moon Landscape" is located close to the Turtle Beach and a special piece of forest. Nice change from a visit to Willemstad and the bays/beaches!

    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.
