Shete Boka National Park ('seven inlets') is a nature reserve in Curaçao. The park was founded in 1994 and covers about 200 hectares.

The area borders the Christoffelpark national park and covers more than 10 kilometers of the rugged north coast of the island. There are a dozen bays and inlets where three types of sea turtles lay their eggs.

The most famous attraction of the area is the Boka Tabla inlet. Besides Boka Tabla, there are six bays and inlets in the northwest of the park: Boka Wandomi with the Natural Bridge, Boka Kortalein, Boka Plate, Boka Mansalina, Boka Djegu and Dos Boka. All these bays and inlets are protected nesting areas of sea turtles.

In the northeast, there are two bays: Boka Kalki and Boka Pistol. Boka Kalki is a bay partially overgrown with mangrove, while Boka Pistol is a very narrow cove where the sea crashes on the rocks.
