Bonaire

 

 

Bonaire is a small island located off the north coast of South America near the western part of Venezuela. Together with Aruba and Curaçao, it forms the group known as the ABC islands.

Bonaire is a flat, riverless island renowned for its offshore reefs and great snorkeling and diving. The entire coastline of the island has been declared a marine sanctuary. Bonaire’s coral reefs begin at the water’s edge and extend out, offering an astonishing array of marine life.

The northern part of the island is a protected park known for its sea turtles.

Bonaire’s eastern side, around Lac Bay, is world-renowned for its windsports, including kite sailing, sailboarding, and boat sailing. In the northern end of the bay is one of the best preserved mangrove forests in the Caribbean, popular for kayaking and snorkeling.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

Windsports

Wind and kite surfing

Lac Bay, (also known as Lac Cai or Lac Cay) on the eastern side of the island is the best and most popular windsurfing spot. Atlantis Beach, on the western part of the island, is the local kite surfing spot.
Diving
The island is ringed by a coral reef which is easily accessible from the shore along the western and southern sides. Furthermore, the entire coastline of the island has been declared a marine sanctuary, preserving local fish life. 

Bonaire’s fringing coral reefs are home to virtually every species of hard and soft coral found in the Caribbean. More than 340 fish species live here, making it one of the healthiest and most bio-diverse reefs in the region.
Snorkeling
The reefs around Bonaire form a narrow fringing reef, which starts practically at the shoreline and extends to a maximum of 984 feet (300m) offshore. The whole area is protected as part of the Bonaire National Marine Park
