The main attraction of Bonaire is the breathtaking underwater world of the Bonaire National Marine Park. The coral reefs of Bonaire are the habitat of an enormous variety of beautiful tropical fish and other colorful sea creatures. Because Bonaire is located outside the hurricane zone, the coral is also of very high quality and entirely intact. On most Caribbean islands devastating storms have made irrecoverable damage to the fragile coral reefs. Diving and snorkeling on Bonaire are also very convenient. At any time of day you can drive to the coast and take a dive from the beach and you will access the coral reef right away. This is very attractive to the diving tourists and it distinguishes Bonaire from most other dive destinations worldwide.

The host is very attentive and friendly, she will assist you if you have any questions about the island. There is a nice garden with swimmingpool where you can enjoy the sun.

Not only the underwater world of Bonaire is breathtakingly beautiful. The north of the island is hilly and is part of the impressive Washington Slagbaai National Park. The picturesque Kralendijk is located in the center of Bonaire on the west coast and is the political, cultural and business center of the Caribbean island. The flat south is the area of enchanting salt pans and a turquoise lagoon surrounded by a unique mangrove vegetation.
Furthermore, Bonaire is world famous for her Caribbean flamingos. There are only four places left on the Caribbean islands where this majestic bird still breeds. The flamingos can only breed in absolute peace and Bonaire is one of the few places in the world where that is still possible. The pink-red birds are easy to observe at different locations on Bonaire.
The Yellow-wing Amazon parrot is another unique species of Bonaire. Of these birds, named ‘Lora’ in Papiamentu, there are only 450 left in the wild. The color combination of green and yellow on the head of this parrot is found only on Bonaire.
Even tourists who do not dive but still want an active vacation on Bonaire have come to the right place. Windsurfing, snorkling, kitesurfing, sailing, mountain biking, land sailing, hiking and horseback riding are just some of the many possibilities of water and land activities on the Caribbean island.
Snorkeling and diving are, in our opinion, the most enjoyable activities to do. The underwater world is beautiful.
There are so many beautiful sights throughout the island. This varies from the traces of the first inhabitants of Bonaire to the most impressive natural phenomena such as caves, rock formations, blowholes, bays, beaches and rough coasts. It is recommended to rent a car to explore the island.

There is plenty to do on Bonaire, including a night out. If you're in the mood for some evening entertainment, you can visit one of the two largest casinos on the island. These casinos are part of hotels, but are accessible to everyone. They open their doors at 10 a.m. and close at 4 a.m. The minimum age to enter the casino is 21 years old and there is no strict dress code.
The casinos will remind you of Las Vegas, with hundreds of ringing and flashing slot machines greeting you as you enter, and gaming tables inviting you to try your luck at games like Roulette, Blackjack, Craps, and Caribbean Stud Poker. Interestingly, Caribbean Stud Poker is a poker variant that originated in Aruba.
Since October 10th 2010, the Netherlands Antilles is abolished and Bonaire has become a special municipality of the Netherlands. This change will provide new opportunities for the Caribbean island. Compared to Aruba and St. Maarten tourism in Bonaire is still in infancy. Policy makers on the Caribbean island will have to find a delicate balance between prosperity and durability to save the uniqueness of Bonaire and to preserve the magnificent nature for future generations.
