“A piece of paradise on earth, thus it looked on the internet. Upon arrival we found that every word of this was correct. What a spacious and uniquely situated app! What a garden, but first of all, what a view! The folding / sliding door makes the app. so unique. Lovely beds and a great shower! We enjoyed three days of beautiful Bonaire. We now have 14 days back to Curacao, but we will definitely return. The dives will still remain on the wish list ...

Snorkel with the naturalist Naturalist guided dive or snorkel.
For divers and snorkelers it is not easy to know what they see. In the beginning it is just – wow! But then you look better and see differences between the species. Not only the different sizes, shapes and colors, but also differences in behavior. When you start noticing that, it is time to contact a naturalist to ask what it is all about. Read more....
Diving and snorkelling
The pristine reefs of Bonaire with its diverse marine life are unique to the Caribbean. Of the 10 top sites for fish diversity in the Western Tropical Atlantic, 7 are located on Bonaire. Bonaire has a fringing reef that surrounds the entire island. The shallow terraces are a true paradise for snorkelers and divers alike. The reef system is a protected national park. On the leeward Western side of Bonaire there are many places where it is easy to just walk in the water from the shore and dive, or snorkel! That is one of the reasons why Bonaire was voted Best Shore Diving Destination in the World.

Flying
Flying
Private pilots can rent a Cessna 172 at the BonAeroClub. Non-pilots can do aerial sightseeing flights and see Bonaire from a spectacular different angle. The colours of the salt flats, the mangroves, the "mountains" up north. And for those who always wanted to fly a plane: you may even get the opportunity to hold the controls flying with one of the FAA flight instructors on the island.

Bird watching
Bonaire's unique location off the Venezuelan coast attracts migratory birds in transit between North and South America. Bird watchers can also observe various species only found in this part of the Caribbean, such as the yellow-shouldered parrot. Bonaire officially has over 200 species of birds that have been sighted here. Join one of the Nature Tours with resident expert Jerry Ligon.

Kayaking
One of the popular water sports on Bonaire is kayaking. There are two types of kayaks available on the island: sit in and sit on top. The stable sit on top is easy to learn, it only takes a basic instruction. The sit in model is for the advanced kayakers who can do Eskimo rolls and can get out of the kayak when it topples over. Guided mangrove tours are a nice leisurely way of enjoying kayaking on Bonaire, but you may also rent one to paddle to Klein Bonaire and go snorkeling there.

Cave exploration
Bonaire boosts over 200 caves. The caves are pristine ancient wonders, with beautiful stalagmites and stalactites and some with lakes and tunnels. You can even snorkel in the crystal clear underground lakes.
The cave systems are not accommodated with railings, paved paths or lights. It is a bit of a challenge to explore them: the only light is the one you carry, bats are flying around, and you will have to climb a little. But a guide is there to help you. Bring sturdy shoes, no flip flops. Its fun!
 

Mountain biking

Mountain biking

There are several places where you can rent mountain bikes to go by yourself. But you can also choose to do a guided trip.
