The principal upshot of having just a few sandy beaches – like those in Bonaire – is the close proximity of their reefs – a big attraction for beginners. Having a minimum number of beaches is also a plus for boat navigation and shore diving.

Bonaire is consistently ranked at the top of the list as the finest diving and snorkeling destination location in the world. Toss in a multitude of land-based activities, high-quality dining and easy transport and you’ll see why so many are in love with Bonaire.
