Bonaire offers thrill seekers prime cliff diving opportunities along the jagged coastal edges. Hold your breath and dive into the inviting emerald waters.
For those of us looking for a little less action and a little more relaxation, find yourself in the epicenter of Bonaire: Rincon. Slink along the town streets lined with quaint yellow cottages, admiring local art, food and indigenous culture. Though Dutch is the official language, you’ll likely overhear jovial conversations among old friends in Papiamento, a Spanish / Portuguese creole language spoken by the locals. Make friends, attend a beachside barbecue or soak up the sunrays seaside.
The European influences are not to be overlooked. Many Europeans have settled on Bonaire – or simply got “stuck” here. As such, in addition of possessing a Caribbean charm, it has an undeniable European allure.
For windsurfers and kitesurfer Bonaire is also something special. The protected lagoon of Lac Bay on the south side of the island is ideal for surf freaks. There, surfers can enjoy consistent and reliable wind speeds of 15-25 knots per hour.
In the north of Bonaire you will find the Washington Slagbaai National Park, which covers approximately 23 square miles (60 square kilometers). There you will discover pure nature, an unspoiled tropical flora and fauna. There are many different types of cacti and mangroves. Birdwatchers will be able to discover over 190 species of birds live. There are people who argue (with a smile) you will find more flamingos heads than humans on Bonaire.
Come and enjoy this beautiful island with us!
