This was a pretty beach but had to climb down a bunch of stairs to get to it. The water was really blue .

Highly recommend visiting this "beach," it is gorgeous. Be advised that there is no beach technically. Bachelor beach sits below a rocky cliff and you must walk down a staircase to enter the water. This beach is perfect for those looking for a great snorkel experience. There is a large variety of fish, we spotted a sea snake hiding underneath... More

There are covered cement tables in the parking area of the entrance to this beach. A yellow stone was there with the words Bachelor's Beach painted on it. You must take the 7 stairs down to the water and snorkel from there. I didn't see anything spectacular. There are much better places where you can snorkel.

Not too far from the capital. Easy to get to by bicycle or car, but not much of a beach. A mostly stoney and rugged area. Good for snorkelling though.

I needed help getting down the stairs and over the rocks with my gear but nice sand once down. We saw a 5ft and a 7 ft barracuda on return in about 10 ft of water. Biggest we have seen yet but overall a very nice dive. The food truck is there during week days and makes awesome hamburgers. If... More

Bachelor's is a tiny bach in the Belem area of Bonaire. As a beach, i's nothing too remarkable: a small strip of sand and good snorkeling opportunities. As a dive site, it's slightly better than the average south side beach off Bonaire. Because it's easily accessible, the site has been a little overdived. The attraction here is the occasional dolphin... More

Definitely a locals beach...lovely for a nice afternoon swim and picnic. Easy to find and stairs that access the crystal clear blue water. Lots of parking and a few covered picnic tables. The beach is small and unusable at times due to tide but an incredible spot to view the stunning island sunsets.

We didn't expect to see nice beaches in Bonaire, but this beach had a vibe and a great view of Klein Bonaire. It was much cleaner then expected.

Very nice beach but not a beach to sit on. The parking is on street level and you walk down a 7 step stairs to step on the beach or directly into the water (depends on the level of the sea). The waters are very clear and full of different kind of fish. To snorkel and dive this is very... More
