Bonaire is 38.6 kilometers long and four point eight to eight kilometers wide, totally 180 square kilometers in area. Klein Bonaire, an island off the west coast, is 1500 acres. Bonaire lies in the Dutch Caribbean and is one of its best-kept secrets. This island has lots to offer both above and under water. The reefs around the island are among the five most spectacular in the world. Protected by law, these reefs form a captivating wildlife area with a unique flora and fauna.

Contrary to the other islands in the Caribbean, many tourists visiting Bonaire have not changed its pace. The island still breaths the relaxed harmonious and tranquil atmosphere of years past. Though, fortunately, it has adapted to all modern conveniences. Exploring Bonaire by car, scooter, or bike can be truly adventurous.

Washington Slagbaai park, a beautiful national park which covers most of the northern part of the island, is an absolute must. The wildlife consists of flamingos, iguanas, and many endangered bird species. Besides nature, Bonaire has many excellent restaurants. After dinner, you can take a walk on the boulevard or have a dance at the Pier at Karel's beach bar.
