A luxury holiday to Bonaire gives you the chance to experience one of the smaller Caribbean Islands with some stunning beaches, world class diving and snorkeling and one of the most relaxed and friendly atmospheres in the region.

Why travel to Bonaire

For divers and snorkellers, this has to be on the wish list with protected marine parks full of colourful life lying a short distance from the shore. That coastline boasts stunning beaches, hidden coves, and large expanses of powdery sand, perfect to simply relax on.

Away from the water’s edge, you’ll discover a rich heritage with colonial architecture, vibrant markets and a rich cultural heritage that blends Dutch and Caribbean flavours. For eco-sensitive travellers, it’s also good to know that Bonaire has a strong commitment to sustainability and conservation that can be seen across the island. A fantastic destination for families with its laid-back approach to life and easy access to all corners of the island, including the fabulous donkey sanctuary, a must for any kid no matter the age.

 

 

If you really want to get away from it all then why not spend a day on Klein Bonaire, the uninhabited island is home to quite possibly the most beautiful white sand beach and is the perfect spot for a picnic in the sun.

To get the best of the wildlife, turtles nest from May to December and flamingos gather in huge numbers between March and July.

This really is a tiny island and you can explore it all quite easily with a hire car in a day or two leaving you plenty of time to relax by the sea. Accommodation choices are limited and you won’t find any of the big name resorts here. Instead, you can expect friendly resorts that are not affected by the over-tourism you may find on the bigger name islands.

Bonaire

Our Destination Expert’s top tip

The island is a haven for watersports but if you want to surf then aim for December to July when the winds are steady and the waves consistent.
