Bonaire’s “Flip Flop Tree” is a famous and quirky landmark. The tree is known for its striking appearance decorated with numerous flip flops hung from its branches by visitors. Standing on the boulevard, this tree has become a popular photo opportunity for tourists. It is a symbol of the island’s laid-back, beach-like culture. Visitors often leave their flip-flops behind as a way to mark their visit to the island. As a result, the setting of the tree is ever-changing. While not a natural wonder or historical site, the Flip Flop Tree captures the imagination of those who see it and serves as a reminder of their stay in this beautiful Caribbean paradise.

My name is Casper Douma and I am a photographer. Since 2014 I’ve been living on this beautiful island, surrounded by a fringing reef. At first glance, you may see mostly cacti and drought, but Bonaire is a little gem if you get to know it better. I would like to take you on one of my photography tours to show you all the special places of Bonaire. In small groups of maximum 4 people I give you a unique look at the beauty of Bonaire. Became curious? Take a look at my website! I wish you a lot of fun on beautiful Bonaire.
