The fabulous underwater world is one of Bonaire’s greatest attractions. Nature lovers from around the world travel to the island where snorkelling is a very popular activity. With only a pair of flippers and diving goggles, you can enjoy all the unique creatures that call the Caribbean Sea home.
In many places, the coral reef extends all the way to the shore, which means you’ll find yourself in a tropical aquarium after swimming only a few metres. Take a trip to the west coast of the island to see seahorses swimming among the coral and discover the mangroves at Lac Bay.
Both beginners and experienced snorkellers can indulge at Andrea I and II. These spots are located 1 kilometre north of the desalination plant and are easy to reach from shore: you simply walk right into the water. Between the soft coral and anemones, the sea is teeming with life. The large brightly coloured parrot fish are hard to miss. With a bit of luck, you may even see seahorses. The water here is exceptionally clear, so you can even film your encounter.
