  • Don't miss this place. It is amazing, almost hypnotizing, to watch the powerful waves explode against the rocks.
  • there's anything just rocks, no animals, anything...you can find the same waves, panorama and rocks in the north of the island..don't need to pay.
  • What a place! You can't believe you're on the same island if you see the west side first. Then you come here and the ocean just screams, boils and roars. Despite its fury, you're amazed by the beauty of the coast, the waves, the sheer power of nature. Definitely worth the few bucks!!
  • This is a must see for natures lovers. Curacao is a small island, but the landscape varies so much from region to region.
  • I loved it. Love the waves crashing hard against the rocky coast. Love the sceneries around. U can't miss it out if you're in a trip to curaƧao.
