Down By the Bay

One of many scenic highlights in Arikok National Park, Boca Prins marks a gorgeous bayshore of limestone cliffs and tawny sands rising from beach powder to sculptured dunes. The rough waters aren't conducive to swimming (although surfers often attend to the nearshore breaks), but hiking the beach and admiring the rock faces up close more than compensate for that.

The Boca Prins café, meanwhile, provides a good venue for post-hike refreshments. And it's easy to make Boca Prins part of an Arikok National Park double-header with nearby Fontein Cave.
