GREAT Dive Spot but lock up your valuables!

This was a very easily accessible dive spot. There's a concrete stairwell going down to the water so entering and exiting with all your gear is a breeze. The parking lot is a... read more

There is a nice, sandy entry unlike most of the other beaches. Looks like a popular place for locals to swim, though not crowded. Saw a huge green moray at around 40 ft. deep.

This was a very easily accessible dive spot. There's a concrete stairwell going down to the water so entering and exiting with all your gear is a breeze. The parking lot is a little sketchy....condoms and empty beer bottles on the ground. We were warned at our dive shop to lock up all valuables in your car because of the... More

Nice reef close to shore. Entrance is easy and you can always just relax at the beach. Nice sand and few rocks. Locals seem to enjoy it too.

we tried 10 or so snorkeling sites on Bonaire and this was one of the least good. Small sandy beach (that's good), plenty of parking, but this is more of a local children's swimming spot than snorkeling. We were told turtles and stingrays are seen there, but we did not see them, and the patchy coral was unremarkable.

Awesome sight with a nice shallow reef. The stairs are a bit tricky at the end but once you get to the sand it is easy entry and exit out of the water. No current or very mild current at this sight and lots of wildlife to look at. Smaller coral reef but very nice.

This was a nice place to get in and warm up to diving again. It is used by many and the coral isn't in the best condition but it is a load of fun and relaxing!

This is always a good dive and the shade covered table and benches are a real plus for getting geared up.

We thought we were in an aquarium! The colors were spectacular and it was an easy dive site to get to.

A small sandy beach if you are lucky and the tide is low. Pristine blue water and a great spot for diving (as almost everywhere on the west coast), easy entry (when you passed the stairs).
