The easy access of this location makes a great night dive. If you've been to Bonaire before, the entrance has moved a little so we scoped it out during the day.

This beach style entry is very easy for divers to enter the water. Plenty of parking without being 'in the bushes'. Also a good sunbathing spot. Near restaurants also.

We snorkled this reef many times in previous years and always enjoyed it a lot, but this time there was much less to see than before. It was a disappointment.

We've dived Bari many times and always try to go at least once while we're there because we usually stay close by, at Hamlet Oasis. It is greatly improved from 2014-2015 since they have cleared most of the brush that served as cover for the...More

I stayed at Den Leman so this was the house reef right outside of my room. Lucky us!!! The daytime diving is great; healthy, gently sloping reef with lots of small to mid-sized reef fish, macro, and the occasional turtle. We did a fluoro dive...More

Very easy entry with lots of fish around the cement slabs. It's like an aquarium. There is also a cafe there if you want to have lunch.

Having read the reviews, we (newish snorklers) were expecting something special but the beach is small and not sooooo easy to gget in and out. There are indeed nice fish...but it is difficult to avoid meeting nice fish in Bonaire. It certainly was not worth...More

Yes, folks snorkel there all the time. In fact, while we were there a snokeler saw a sea ray in the sand that we divers missed! There are also other sites that are known just for snorkeling. The island is small but the... More

degsy7 is right - there's a good-sized parking lot, just off the rotary (traffic roundabout); easy shore entry. There are taxis (no public transportation that I know of), and they're not very expensive - it's not very far... More
