Shete Boka Blow Hole


The National Park Shete Boka (seven coves or bays) is a nature reserve on Curaçao. The park was established in 1994 and covers about 200 hectares.

The area borders the National Park Christoffel Park and covers more than 10 kilometers of the rugged north coast of the island. There are a dozen coves and inlets where three species of sea turtles lay their eggs.

The most famous attraction of the area is Boka Tabla, a cave that one side is accessible by land, and where on the other side the rolling sea slams in by the northeast trade winds inside.

Besides Boka Tabla, there are six bays and coves in the northwest of the park: Boka Wandomi with the natural bridge of Curaçao, Kortalein Boka, Boka Plate, Boka Mans Alina, Boka Djegu and Dos Boka. All these bays and coves are protected nesting areas for sea turtles.

In the northeast are still two bays Boka Kalki and Boka Pistol. Boka Kalki is a partially overgrown with mangrove bay Boka Pistol while a very narrow cove where the sea-tossed with gunfire at similar explosions at the seafront turn.
