Beautiful Bonaire

Navigator News > Charter

Bonaire is the “B” of the “ABC” Islands that also comprise Aruba and Curaçao — all three of these islands were formerly part of the Netherlands Antilles and all have distinctly Dutch influences.

Bonaire is only 111 square miles, but don’t be deceived by her size. There is a great wealth of activities to be found by land or by sea. Bonaire’s exceptional mountain Brandaris holds title of highest peak on the island at 784 feet (241 meters). Located in the beautiful Washington Slagbaai National Park, find the Subi Brandaris Trail. A 45-minute hike will take you to the peak where, on a clear day, you can see as far as Curaçao.

Far below the peak of Brandaris, the shoreline also teems with exciting activities for those who want to indulge in active vacationing rather than simple relaxation. Kite surfing, windsurfing and snorkeling all are on offer. But where Bonaire really shines is below the sea. Reader’s Choice has listed Bonaire as one of the top shore-diving destinations for more than 20 years. Bonaire also has held the title of Best Destination Overall and Best Destination for Marine and Macro Life. The likely reason for these accolades is the coral reef that encircles the island. With more than 63 official dive sites, 350 species of fish and 57 species of stony and soft corals found in the Bonaire Marine Park, there is plenty to see in the sea.

Bonaire boasts more than 22 idyllic beaches, perfect for soaking up the sun and unwinding. Another relaxing endeavor in Bonaire is a lazy day spent perusing the Wilhelmina square market for island-made goods. Wilhelmina also offers an array of chic restaurants for an evening out on the town.

Be it exploring the striking views from atop and down below, active days by the water or simply spending time in the sun, this little Caribbean haven has something to offer everyone.
