Shete Boka National Park – “Seven Inlets”

Shete Boka National Park: An Impressive Experience

Shete Boka means “seven inlets” in Papiamento. With scenic inlets the rugged coastline is dramatic and wild. The incessantly crashing waves have sculptured the coral rock into fascinating natural works art.

Boka Tabla

The most well-known and favorite inlet for visitors is Boka Tabla, where you can descend a natural rock stairway (take care, it’s very slippery) to view an an arched opening that looks out on the sea like a giant eye. The cove of Boka Tabla is located closest to the parking area.
