Unspoiled beauty is what distinguishes tranquil Bonaire, a special corner of the southern Caribbean where pink flamingos outnumber the people.
Acclaimed for its pioneering role in nature preservation, in particular the conservation of its marine environment, Bonaire is considered one of the world's top scuba diving destinations. It boasts over 86 fascinating dive sites for novice and experienced divers alike. Brightly colored tropical fish and spectacular coral reef formations are just some of the riches lying beneath the surface of the sea.
Home to over 100 species of exotic birds and the occasional iguana, the interior of Bonaire is equally enthralling. Visit the salt flats to see impressive colonies of pink flamingos, and hike to the summit of Mt. Brandaris in Washington National Park for extraordinary views - bring your camera!
Bonaire has a reputation for being low-key and serene. This is quite true, yet the island also offers a lively nightlife, fun places to visit, and world-class dining.
Whichever of its pleasures lures you to Bonaire, you'll always remember its year-round sunshine, friendly people, and easy-going island lifestyle.
