Our Bonaire Map Leads You to All the Fun
Discover dushi Bonaire, where paradise waits to be discovered above and below the water. Our quaint island, in the far Southern Caribbean, delivers everything you need for the tropical vacation of your dreams. From white sand beaches and hot pink flamingos to a mountainous national park and pristine underwater world lush with colorful fish and corals, there’s something for everyone on the island.
- Snorkel or scuba dive the fringing reef that encircles the island. Protected since 1979, the Bonaire National Marine Park is home to countless species of tropical fish, colorful corals and pelagic creatures like manta rays and whale sharks. Warm, crystal clear water with little current or waves makes it easy to explore this magical underwater world.
- Explore Washington Slagbaai National Park at the north end of the island. Once the site of two land plantations – Washington & Slagbaai – that supplied salt, charcoal, aloe extract and goats to Curaçao and Europe, today the park is home to countless iguanas, goats and donkeys that thrive in the rugged, natural environment. It is also where you can climb the island’s highest peak, Brandaris, for a birds’ eye view of Bonaire, neighboring Curaçao and the Caribbean Sea.
- Relax on one of the island’s 22 sugar-sand beaches. While rumor has it that Bonaire doesn’t have any beaches, that’s not true. It is just that some appear and disappear with the tides and weather conditions. But when they are accessible, they offer some of the most pristine beach experiences anywhere in the world.
- Hike or mountain bike on winding dirt trails in the north to experience the beauty of the island. Dos Pos Trail and Gotomeer Trail are two of the most popular.
- Look for the yellow painted rocks on the side of the roads around the island. Many are signposts for popular dive sites, while other’s offer guidance on protected areas where sea birds and flamingoes nest each season.
As you can see, there’s so much to do when you visit the island that you might want to stay just a little longer! Bonaire’s location, just off the Venezuelan coast of South America and only 12 degrees from the equator, promises great weather anytime of the year.
