A day guide for Bonaire
You’ve got 1 day for a getaway to Bonaire. Wondering what to do? In this quick guide, we’ll show you how to do Bonaire in a day, adventure and relaxation guaranteed!
How to get around Bonaire
The island is small yes, but you’ll still need wheels to get around. Not to worry! Bonaire is bike friendly, but beware of the glaring sun, so don’t forget to wear shades and a hat. Want to amp up your speed? Hop on a scooter, to be rented anywhere. Or go glam and rent a car when you land at Bonaire’s International Flamingo Airport. The most laidback airport you’ve ever been to by the way.
Enjoy a harborside coffee and a croissant at one of the café’s along Kralendijk’s boulevard. If you ask us, it’s the best way to fuel up before you start a day of beach hopping. Watch the sailboats come and go and have a drink while pelicans entertain you with acrobatic moves.
Beaches galore: Let the wandering begin
In an adventurous mood? Venture into off-gridding mode and go snorkeling at Thousand Steps Beach. A magical coral reef with colorful fish awaits you at the end of the stairs of this beautifully located beach. Bring your own drinks (plastic free please) for refreshment after your snorkeling adventure. When beach time’s over, head over to the quaint little town of Rincon for some local food before heading back for a pre-dinner siesta.
Whatever you feel like having, chances are that Bonaire’s got it. Italian? Check. Peruvian specialties? Have that too. Bonaire’s official Tourism Guide can help out or surf over to Trip Advisor to find your restaurant of choice. Bonaire’s laid back atmosphere allows for casual dining without the formality, but of the finest quality. Sunset dinner anyone?
