The island of Bonaire was first settled by Europeans in the 16th century as part of the Netherlands Antilles. Today, its 18,000 inhabitants retain ties with the Netherlands while also proudly fostering their Caribbean culture. Explore the island’s natural landscapes and meet with welcoming locals who bring credence to the island-nation's motto: "Once a visitor, always a friend."
The island's main city is Kralendijk, a coastal settlement of red-roofed colonial buildings. Explore the beachside promenade to find a range of restaurants, shops and historic sites. Visit the World War II monument and pay tribute to Bonairian soldiers. Admire the Pasanggrahan, a yellow palace home to the island-nation's parliament.
Drive north to Rincon, Bonaire's other major settlement, and discover the island's colonial history. Get insight into the slave culture of the 1500s at a restored plantation house, learn the African-style Simadan dance or admire cactus fences in the outdoor Real Rincon Museum.
Go to Bonaire's diverse wetlands and picturesque coast and see why conserving the environment is so important to this island. Explore Lac Bay on the south-eastern coast. Try kite surfing at Atlantis Beach. Kayak through the mangroves or relax at Sorobon Beach, where resort restaurants serve meals by the sea.
Bonaire is a renowned diving and snorkeling location. Find the best snorkeling locations marked by yellow stones along the Bonairian coast. Klein Bonaire, a small uninhabited islet off Bonaire’s west coast, is another spectacular snorkeling destination that you can reach in 25 minutes by water taxi. Klein Bonaire is part of the Bonaire National Marine Park. To enter the marine park you must have a STINAPA Marine Park Tag, which can be purchased from dive centers and hotels.
Inland, spot wild goats around Lake Gotomeer or hike through the protected reserves of the Washington Slagbaai National Park. In Bonaire's south, take a tour of the salt production farms, one of the island's main industries, and witness a sea of pink plumage at the Flamingo Sanctuary.
To reach Bonaire, fly into the island’s international airport, which is a 15-minute taxi ride from Kralendijk where you can get around on foot. Travel further afield on a rented bike or scooter. As evening falls, try iguana soup in a restaurant along the beachside promenade and savour the sights, sounds and smells of this unique getaway.
Loved the all inclusive option. The dive shop right on property, with a staff that was awesome!!! Everyone was super friendly!
Newest property, all mod cons and well-situated 5-10 minutes from the airport, my favorite dive shop (Belmar Buddy Dive), great restos and main island supermarkets.
Excellent location,all employees very attentive to any needs,need more food,drink selections,property very clean,nicest beach on island my opinion. Will return.
Great location, close enough to walk to town and restaurants. Excellent dive shop on the property. The Woodwind sailing/snorkeling cruises leave from one of the docks located on the property and I highly recommend them. There is a Hertz car rental located on the property also.
Brand new condo with really good appliances. It is in a developing neighborhood, so there are dirt roads around. But the atmosphere inside the resort is very pleasing. Good location for diving trips.
Lovely accommodations, wonderful staff, breathtaking views, and ideal location for snorkeling and diving. Also, location is close to airport, shopping and great restaurants! We hope to stay there again soon!
Captain Dons is a divers resort. Great dive staff, easy access to several dive sites nearby. They are remodeling the bar area starting July 5th which it needed. They’re doing a lot of improvement of the grounds as well. The food is just okay, not exceptional and many resorts have drive through tank ...
This was a great place. I really liked the modern design, the comfortable mattress and the large patio. I didn't love the traffic on the road or the construction going on nearby. I was told that they are building a hotel. A lot of the Island has construction and so it is what it is. It did make parking ...
