Chances are you visit Bonaire because of its beautiful beaches. Each beach on Bonaire has its own atmosphere. Just put these gems on your list:
This secluded beach is named after the nearby plantations that used donkeys to transport sugar cane to the fields. Magically beautiful. Food trucks can regularly be found here with the tastiest beach bites.
Te Amo Beach
A beautiful, white-sand beach close to Bonaire's airport. Just off Te Amo is a beautiful reef, so be sure to bring your snorkelling gear.
Popular with the locals and also a super spot for snorkelling. Be careful not to drive past it, though. The beach is at the foot of a three-metre-high cliff and therefore cannot be seen from the road.
Lac Bay, an azure lagoon in the south-east of Bonaire, is known for its two fantastic sandy beaches. Sorobon Beach is the place to be for windsurfers. Maybe you can see yourself skimming over the water, hanging from a surf sail? Something less spectacular is also possible; Sorobon is just as popular with families with children, who mainly enjoy the shallow water and fine white sand. Novice windsurfers are also well placed here, as the shallow water makes it easy to get on a surfboard.
The hidden beach of Cai among the mangroves of Lac Bay is an oasis of calm. It is the perfect place to spot turtles attracted by the sea grass present. Sundays can be a little busier at this beach; locals like to gather here to socialise and barbecue.
"Lac Bay is largely a protected area with with different types of fish, birds and sea turtles."
On Klein Bonaire, an uninhabited island just 800 metres off the coast of Bonaire, you will find a beautiful sandy beach: No Name Beach. The reef that runs parallel to this beach is one of Bonaire's best and busiest snorkelling spots. A water taxi takes you back and forth to Klein Bonaire.
