Bonaire is a small island located in the southern Caribbean and it is truly unique in the world. It's as if this tiny island was made just for diving and snorkeling, as, from virtually any place on the leeward coastline, you can enter the beautiful Caribbean Sea and dive! No other island in the Caribbean has so many unrestricted shore dive sites. Steep walls, sloping drop-offs, exciting wrecks and last, but not least, the double reef system, which will take your breath away.

For over 20 years, Bonaire has maintained dedication to protecting its natural beauty and environment. The Bonairean people declared the waters around Bonaire and Klein Bonaire, an underwater marine park.

Bonaire has the reputation of being laid back, very tranquil, and a paradise for divers. People have written many slogans and descriptions about Bonaire, such as 'the best kept secret,' 'unforgettable, unhurried,' and, of course, 'divers' paradise.' The fact is that all these statements are true. There is so much to explore both above and below the water!

Location:

Bonaire is located 30 miles from Curacao; 50 miles north of Venezuela and 86 miles east of Aruba, outside the hurricane belt. The island is 24 miles long by 3-7 miles wide, 112 square miles. Its highest point is Brandaris Hill, 784 feet.

Climate:

Yearly average temperature is 82° F (27.8° C), average water temperature is 80° F (26.7° C), average humidity is 76%, and the island receives lots of sunshine.

Winds:

Easterly year round.

Papiamentu is the local language. Most residents also speak Dutch, Spanish, and English.

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I went there with two other couples and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. The house is nicely appointed and has abundant space. All the bedrooms are very large, all the bathrooms have been recently and tastefully remodeled and have large showers. There are three safes where you can store your valuable when you are not around. By midweek two of the safes run out of battery, but we managed with one without a problem, we did not bother to tell the on site management, but I'm sure they would have fix it immediately. The living area is also comfortable with a dining table sitting for 6 people. The kitchen has everything you may need, down to a cigar cutter, if you ever need one. When we were home we spent most of the time on the patio and had breakfast and lunch in the shade, there is a nice breeze and plenty of lounge chairs and a hammock. The water is just few feet away and the sunsets are spectacular. Be ready to become friends with several resident iguanas, by the end of the week our guys were hand feeding them, although I would not recommend doing so. The beach towels are provided and can be changed whenever you need just by going to the front office. The managers were very nice and helped us immediately with minor problems, one a/c unit had a water leak, and we were not able to operate another one, but everything was fixed the day after we arrived. The owner arranged for our pick up rental and scuba needs making the process of settling down effortless. A Dive Friends outfit is on site and arranged for our check out dive when we were ready (not the other way around), the staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on dive sites.
I would definitely go back and would recommend this place to our friends.

SUPERB CONDO WITH TERRIFIC AMENITIES AND SNORKELING

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at Sand Dollar. Stuart was extremely helpful before our stay, helping arrange for truck rental and answering lots of questions. He also responded right away to email questions during our stay. The condo is gorgeous and has everything anyone could want. Our family of 6 stayed there; breakfast and lunch on the patio was wonderful looking out at the ocean. It helped greatly to have a washing machine, and everything dried quickly hung outside. The staff was very helpful at the office. Snorkeling was terrific - just a walk down the steps to terrific snorkeling. We rented scuba gear from Dive Friends right at Sand Dollar; this is a great setup because you can switch out tanks at their other sites all over the island. We ordered fresh fish to cook on the grill one night. Van Den Tweels is a great supermarket; we really liked the marinated meat sampler packs that we also grilled back at the condo. We went on the cave tour which included snorkeling in a cave - neat! We drove all over the island and dove at various sites - 1000 steps was great for both snorkel and scuba. We rented kayaks and went over to Klein Bonaire - great snorkeling there as well. All in all a fantastic vacation - I would highly recommend this condo!

GREAT LOCATION, GREAT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from our week in Bonaire and this condo was an awesome home base. We were a group of 6 adults who prefer self-catering and scuba diving. The location was perfect, the condo was as advertised. The photos are very accurate. The diving is convenient, the views and sunsets simply breathtaking. The large kitchen, three full bathrooms, and storage on the porch for all the scuba gear were great.

The negatives were standard travel issues. The air conditioning didn't work in one bedroom and the desk staff couldn't get someone to fix it for a day. There was some on-site construction that meant we couldn't park right in front and there was noise. But those issues didn't take away from our fantastic trip.

Owner's Response: We are very happy you had a nice trip to Bonaire and were able to enjoy our ocean front condo! Yes, the views are amazing and the sunsets are different every night. Sorry for the construction work, "new drainage pipes", but they are now finished so much better for the reefs! Hope you guys will return in 2014!

BEST EXPERIENCE ON BONAIRE YET!

  • 5 of 5
We have traveled to Bonaire many times and stayed all over the island. This was by far the best experience. The staff in the office are so incredibly welcoming, and helpful if there is any question or issue. The owner, Stuart, was in contact with us about our stay and checked in to see how things were going. I hear the rental is getting a makeover, however it was perfect before! Lots of space inside to sprawl out, but the best part for me was the patio! Couldn't be closer to the water, and the kids loved the hammock. We are already planning our next stay here!!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We travel to Bonaire every Spring for our anniversary. We were placed in this unit during one of our visits and fell in love with it. When Stuart purchased the unit a few years ago we started renting directly from him. The condo has everything you will need for a great vacation. Bari reef is literally 35 steps from the front porch of the unit. There is a patio that extends the front length of the condo and provides a lovely place to sit and enjoy the tradewinds and beautiful views of Klein. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to cook a full meal or a quick breakfast or lunch. The unit is very clean and comfortable. There are plenty of spots on the patio to hang wet dive gear and there is also a little wagon that comes with the unit that can be used to transport gear back and forth from the dock. Make sure to enjoy the specatular sunsets from the patio before going to dinner. We found a new BBQ restaruant called Joe's Grillhouse and it's definitely worth a stop for dinner. Other favorites are Wil's Grill, Mi Banana and Unbelievable. We also finally found the local "fish house" where fresh fish can be purchased if the blackboard has fish listed for the day. We purchased fresh tuna for $7.50/kg and $1 extra to have the head cut off! Vacationing in Bonaire in this unit is one of my favorite trips. Returning here every year feels like coming home!

Bonaire is one of the top 5 dive/snorkel locations in the world. Protected marine reserve for 30 years, located on 'BARI' reef, cited by 'REEF' as the most prolific fish-spotting location in the Caribbean! Fantastic bird watching opportunities and sightseeing. Bonaire is also known as the 'Wind Surfing Capital' of the world!

Bonaire's Lac Bay offers near-perfect conditions for all levels of surfers, from beginners to experienced sailors. The shallow waters of the bay also boast favorable on-shore winds making Lac Bay the perfect place to learn or hone your skills.

Lac Bay offers something for everyone: Couples can enjoy each others company, even if one likes to sail and one likes to enjoy the beach. Exciting family vacations are rare treats with the whole family able to enjoy their windsurfing days together. Children can begin lessons as early as four years of age!

Bonaire Windsurf Place offers a snack bar featuring sandwiches, snacks, and beverages right on the premises, so windsurfers don't need to go far to recoup their energy before jumping back on a board.
