Natural beauty above water
Bonaire is not only paradise on earth for worshipers of the always shining sun, or lovers of sea and beach. And not only for the divers and snorkelers or practitioners of other water sports, in or on the Caribbean Sea.
No, our island offers beautiful natural treasures, also above the water surface!
Our selection for Bonaire island treasures
BRANDARIS is a 241 meter high mountain in the Washington Slagbaai National Park and the top of the mountain is the highest point of our island. The Subí Brandaris Trail is a 45-minute walk to the top.

KLEIN BONAIRE island is fantastic for snorkeling, diving or just relaxing with a cooler and sunscreen. Water taxis depart from Kralendijk daily to this uninhabited islet.

CAVES are fully present on Bonaire. With a pair of sturdy shoes and preferably a guide, you can enter a whole new world on Bonaire. The cave formations are a crucial part of the ecosystem on the island.

GOTO LAKE (or Gotomeer in Dutch) is a saltwater lagoon in the north of the island and is known as a flamingo meeting place. On the road from Karpata to the Goto Lake, you will come across a large parking lot halfway, from where our guests have a great view.

LAC BAY is een prachtige azuurblauwe lagune van ruim 700 hectare, de grootste van de drie ABC-eilanden! Lac Bay wordt begrensd door een barrièrerif richting de open zee, weelderige mangrovebossen aan driekwart van de oevers en twee schiereilandjes: Lac Cai en Sorobon.
Let yourself be overwhelmed by Lac Bay here!
The MANGROVES around Lac Bay form a unique environment in the wild nature of Bonaire. Our guests can kayak and snorkel here and enjoy the overwhelming silence.

The SALT PANS are part of the salt industry and the flourishing salt industry by Cargill. Huge mountains with white crystals can be seen on the south side of Bonaire, a setting that can be seen on many holiday photos and (back in the days) on postcards!

The WASHINGTON SLAGBAAI NATIONAL PARK is located on the north side of Bonaire and is a beautiful area to drive through with a four-wheel drive car, to snorkel on the many deserted beaches and possibly to climb the Brandaris.
