A Seaside Playground for Pink Flamingos
Located in the Caribbean Netherlands, Kralendijk, Bonaire is beautifully surrounded by a marine park and is widely considered one of the best diving destinations in the world.
Visit the uninhabited Klein Bonaire or the Bonaire National Marine Park for dozens of dive sites, many of which are reachable from shore. Head to Sorobon Beach and Lac Bay for windsurfing and kayaking or Bari Reef for reef diving and snorkeling; and if you love pink flamingos, then Washington Slagbaai National Park is the place for you, as thousands of them flock there every year. (In fact, Bonaire’s airport is called Flamingo International Airport.)
Shop along the main street of Kaya Grandi for local products like jewelry, paintings, and ceramics, and then take some postcard-worthy photographs of Kralendijk’s pastel-colored houses.
