We love the underwater life in Bonaire. Other than that not much here. Can walk off the ship and a few shops.

Unless you are into diving or snorkeling, there is not much there other than the beautiful clear water.

Interesting - make sure your island tour guide off the pier comes with a driver that speaks good english. We missed it on this one. But the island was interesting with wild flamingos.

Got a local taxi driver to take us to Salt mines/slave huts/flamingos and a stop off at the Bonaire Donkey Sanctuary where we met a lovely lady who has rescued 400 donkeys and depends entirely on donations to feed and care for them. ... Read More

Not quite so impressed with this destination, and think it would probably be good if you were a scuba diver. The island seems to be set up for diving or snorkeling.

Dirty little town and the shopping was very expensive. I did not want to do the Atlantis again, since we did this already... hot place and we only there a short time.

Bonaire is very limited in terms of interesting tours . After your first visit your options are limited. I suggest that you make more of Klein Bonaire but beware of the lack of shade and facilities. The other beaches are ok but limited for swimming . Good bars to meet other people and shade from the sun. Local taxis are very good, safe and reasonable. Read Less

This destination mostly caters to divers, so otherwise not so much to do there. Would have preferred to spend the time in Curacao or Aruba.

A beautiful island in it's own way, lots of cacti, some flamingo's, this is a divers island, no beaches for swimming, took the North Island tour. No good for shopping or beach time.

Not being a diver or snorkeler, there was not much to see/do here. Not even a Diamonds International to be found! But the scenery was nice and was covered by a 2 hour tour by van.

Island flat as a pancake. Wanted to go snorkelling again and the isle of Klein Bonaire over the way seemed ideal. However, we were told there was no water, no food and no toilet and the boat would be there until 3 pm. Not good with an 8 year old. Went to Eden Bay instead which is just a run down hotel with a shabby looking beach, but the snokelling is right off the beach and the distance from the ship is not too far. Read Less
