Literally on your doorstep is one of Bonaire’s top destinations: downtown Kralendijk. It is a city that exudes joy. There is color everywhere - house fronts are brightly painted, the market stalls are stacked high with succulent fruit or stocked with vibrant, locally made clothes and accessories and, as a backdrop to it all, there is the ocean in iridescent blue.

The main shopping street, worth visiting just for the shopping of course, is lined with late 19th century buildings where long ago the shopkeepers used to live upstairs from their shops. You can visit the imposing Fort Oranje, see the authentic canons from a British ship that ran aground in 1823 or get an overview of the island’s past in a variety of museums.

Wildlife in Bonaire

Bonaire is well-known for the great care it takes of nature. Klein Bonaire, just off the coast and visible from your apartment, is surrounded by a coral reef and provides a feeding ground for flamingos as well as a safe place to nest for the local turtles. Bonaire boasts a large feathered population of more than 203 species of bird, including resident varieties of parrots and parakeets, pelicans and ospreys. Other animals you may encounter include donkeys and goats, lizards and iguanas, and if you are very lucky you may meet one of the eight different species of bat that have made Bonaire their home.

If you want to see the local birds at their happiest, go and visit the awe-inspiring salt flats of Pekelmeer, where you will find the flamingos and pelicans dining on the brine shrimp that naturally occur in the vibrant pink condensing ponds. Looking around, you cannot fail to be impressed by the brilliant white mountains of dried salt, ready to be shipped all over the world from the dedicated pier at the salt facility. Here, again, we can see Bonaire working in harmony with nature, harnessing the sea to further its economy, while simultaneously creating the perfect habitat for the island's wildlife.
