Very nice place. Worth the visit if you go to Curacao. Don't forget the suncream and keep in mind that there are no shade where you can hide from the sun :)

Boca Tabla on the northeastern coast is one of many "bokas," or inlets in Shete Boka National Park, Waves crash into an underwater cave throwing up white foamy water against the cliffs. The footpaths down from the parking lot and up on top of the cliff are uneven and covered with white crushed gravel, Be careful because it can slide... More

My husband and I loved Boca Tabla. We rented a car at the airport and drove all over the island. This was our favorite place. Yu can actually walk into the water and be in the tabla!

We drove to this location, which was well worth it. A rugged coastline, smashed by powerful waves. Open to the elements, so hats, sunglasses, lip salve and suncream required. Protect your camera from the salty sea spray too.

This was my second time here. Both times very windy which is nice to cool you off while you walk the trails. Lots of opportunities for photos of water rushing over the rocks. Washroom facilities clean and free.

Be prepared to walk a bit, max 2 hours. Goos footwear better than flip flops. Great place for pics and video.

Worth the trip and admission fee to see this amazing site. Rough driving to two of the viewing locations, but one is within walking distance from the first parking lot. The water hits the rocks with such force it shoots straight up in the air you may also feel some mist. Once in a while you may see sea turtles.... More

We visited Boca Tabla as part of our buggy tour with ATV & Buggy tours (see separate review). This stop was very cool and a lot to see. I would not recommend trying to visit this spot on your own but definitely go on a buggy tour. Boca Tabla was just one great stop.

The ocean here slams against the rocks and sprays into the air. It is beautiful and exhilarating. The wind whips your hair and clothes and water sprays your face. Very cool place!
