The most pristine of the ABC islands, Bonaire is synonymous with
bright coral reefs and colourful exotic fish cherished by divers the world over. It is also a land still full of its original beauty.
The "White Gold" island, as Bonaire was known as, due to the miles of blinding white salt piles in the South, has kept its wild and harsh original beauty. Bonaire is home to around 200 bird species, including budgerigars, parrots and hummingbirds. It also has the largest flamingo colony in the Caribbean and the airport is named after these exotic birds.
Bonaire is surrounded by crystal clear emerald green water and one of the most pristine coral reefs on earth.
The people of Bonaire are very conscious of preserving their beautiful underwater environment and for the last 20 years have designated all surrounding waters as a protected National Marine Park. The largest region is the Washington Slagbaai Marine Park found north of the island.
