The entire coastline of BONAIRE island is a natural reservation.

Bonaire is a Caribbean paradise. Together with Aruba and Curaçao islands, it forms a group often called the ABC islands of the Leeward (Dutch) Antilles.

The Dutch Antilles are a chain of the Lesser Antilles. There are two groups of islands: one is the group formed by Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao islands (near Venezuela) and the other one is formed by Sint Eustatius, Saba and Sint Maarten islands (SE of the Virgin Islands).

Bonaire was discovered by the Spanish in 1499. The island has known a Spanish age, a Dutch one and an English one.

Situated off the hurricane belt, the island is a sanctuary of waterlife, famous for its flamingo birds or the coral reefs that shelter exotic fish and countless small seahorses.

Bonaire is a true paradise for divers and windsurfers, being one of the best locations in the world.
