Bonaire is ‘Destination Water Sports’.
Are you a lover of surfing, kiting, diving, snorkeling, fishing or sailing? Indulge yourself on Bonaire. Connoisseurs of the beach and culinary delights will also appreciate this island.
There is no mass tourism and large hotels on Bonaire, but small-scale resorts and trendy beach clubs instead. Bonaire is a quiet island lined with sand and coral in the former Dutch Antilles. There are many flamingos on this island, which are as pink as a candy floss. Sea turtles swim in the turquoise sea, together with many large and small brightly colored fish. The colors on Bonaire are truly breathtaking.
There is a constant summer vibe on this island and the temperature is almost a steady 28 degrees year-round. The ever-present soft cooling breeze lightens the air.
A visit to the national park 'Washington Slagbaai' is a must.

Snorkeling & Diving
One of the most famous dive sites on Bonaire is Thousand Steps. This staircase is called Thousand Steps because you have to go up these stairs after a dive with your equipment. This feels like 1000 steps. When you find the long stairs too much, you can also reach 1000 steps by boat.

A beautiful place to dive with both hard and soft coral. The reef turns into a sloping sandy bottom after 38 meters.

Salt Pier is located near the salt pier of Bonaire and is one of the most beautiful dive sites on the island. You can see large schools of fish and under the rear platform of the pier tarpons and barracudas hide for example. You walk straight into the sea from the large parking lot. Diving and snorkeling is only allowed when there are no boats at the pier.
