First time visitors to Bonaire are often surprised at the island’s lack of mainstream, touristy type beaches. After all, this is the Caribbean, isn’t it? And the Caribbean is the place you go for stretches of sugar sand beaches dotted with palm trees, right?
While Bonaire may be lacking in numerous sandy stretches, it’s world-class shore diving and snorkeling more than makes up for the lack of endless Instagrammable beachfront. You can dive and still dig your toes in the sand on Bonaire. We think it’s a pretty balanced trade.
What’s also cool about Bonaire’s best beaches is that many are off the beaten path. Whether you want to sip a colorful umbrella drink and soak up the abundant sunshine, or just chill out, swim and snorkel in unspoiled nature, you’ll find many beaches worth the trek .
Here’s 3 great spots you’ll want to visit to relax and create your own island moments – beach included.
