Bonaire is a gateway to the ABC Islands

Fringed by shallow coral reefs, Bonaire is a mecca for snorkelers and scuba divers. In fact, it boasts some of the best dive sites in the Caribbean Sea. It sits in the Leeward Antilles and together with Aruba and Curacao it forms a pint-sized archipelago known as the ABC Islands. With its sugar-white beaches and desert interior, Bonaire lures vacationers in search of a shipwrecked experience. Throw in an adorable population of wild donkeys and Bonaire is one of the Caribbean's most captivating destinations. Sound like your kind of paradise? From oceanfront villas to breezy condos, Bonaire vacation rentals cater to executive travelers and shoestring sunseekers alike.

Shipwrecked on Bonaire

Bonaire is fringed by gorgeous beaches, though none quite compare to the scene on Klein Bonaire. The tiny deserted island sits less than 1 mile off the coast, with water taxis whisking sunseekers across the strait. There's plenty on offer if you want to stretch your legs, from windsurfing on Lac Bay to biking along cactus-strewn trails. If you'd rather do nothing at all, Bonaire vacation rentals tick all the boxes. With private pools, sun-drenched decks and swaying hammocks all you need to bring is a good book.

Dive into Bonaire National Marine Park

The island's biggest drawcard is Bonaire National Marine Park. Venture under the sea and you'll find a wonderland of colorful coral and tropical fish. The reef starts just a few feet from the shoreline, which makes Bonaire a paradise for divers, snorkelers and glass bottomed kayakers alike. Land lubbers will jump at the chance to explore Washington-Slagbaai National Park. It dominates the island's deserted interior and is best explored by 4WD. Hit the driving routes to discover remote beaches, shimmering salt ponds, volcanic hills and sprawling cactus gardens.

Enjoy Bonaire's summer sweet spot

Winter is high season in the ABC Islands, with legions of sunseekers descending on Bonaire. Temperatures hover around the 80s, which means oceanfront swimming pools and direct beach access are usually top priorities when selecting Bonaire vacation rentals. Unlike much of the Caribbean, Bonaire lies outside the Atlantic hurricane belt. This means that instead of ushering in wild weather, June to November is considered a sweet spot for travelers in search of shoulder season discounts and a laid-back vibe.

Donkeys, parrots and hot-pink flamingos in Bonaire

While some Caribbean islands champion exotic wildlife, Bonaire is famous for its wild donkeys. They roam free on the island, though the best place to meet friendly jacks and jennies is the Donkey Sanctuary. Don't forget to bring a stash of carrots for your new furry friends. Birders will jump at the chance to spot the yellow-throated Amazon parrot, an endangered species protected at the Echo Parrot Sanctuary. Head to the Gotomeer saltwater lagoon and you'll find yourself face to face with a hot-pink flock of flamingos.
