Aside from being a remarkable destination in Curaçao, Boka Samí also has historical significance. Archeological excavations at “Berg Sint Michiel” uncovering undisturbed graves, prove that this area was inhabited in the period 2500-1800 BC.
Fast forward to the 18th Century: Boka Samí was a strategic location where the Dutch settled and defended the region from the French and British invaders.
More recently in the 20th Century during WWII, 400 American troops were stationed at Fort Sint Michiel.
These are just a few of Boka Samí’s noteworthy facts. Needless to say, Boka Samí has been at the heart of Curaçao’s history for centuries.
