Described by recent visitors as a "breathtaking natural wonder," Shete Boka National Park sprawls across more than 6 miles of Curacao's north coast. It's home to 10 pocket bays where various species of sea turtles are known to lay eggs. Hot spots within the park include Boka Tabla, which sees massive waves crashing into an underground cavern, and Boka Pistol, which offers panoramic views from limestone hills. 

Past visitors were in awe of the stunning views from the park, especially those at Boka Pistol. They also warn that the winds can be very strong on this part of the island.

The park, which is just north of Christoffelpark, is best reached via car, according to past visitors. It welcomes visitors from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Entrance costs $10 per person. For more information about hiking trails within the park, visit the official website.

If you really want to see some of Curaçao's best sights, you're going to have to get your hair wet. A fascinating world of delicate coral gardens, graceful stingrays, playful dolphins and even sunken ships awaits you in the depths of the Caribbean. The best way to explore it is with a plastic mask strapped to your face and an oxygen tank strapped to your back. 

Many of Curaçao's specified dive sites are accessible directly from the beach – try Porto Mari or Blauwbaai – while others must be reached by boat. The enormous star coral formations of the Mushroom Forest are a must-see; afterward, you can take a breather in the sapphire light of the nearby Blue Room cave. You can also explore the coral-encrusted remains of the Superior Producer, a cargo freighter that went down in 1977.
