"A bounty of natural beauty" Top 5 Page for this destination Bonaire by kyoub

Bonaire Travel Guide: 308 reviews and 762 photos

This boomerang shaped, coral island has three distint areas: a hilly greener north end, a flatter middle with the appearance of the American southwest, and a flat southern end with salt pans, sand dunes, and mangrove swamps

The island has three nature sanctuaries.....one for birds and wildlife, another for flamingos, and the third for marine life.
All this on an island just 24 miles long and 5 miles wide.

Bonaire is one of the few remaining nesting places in the world for the pink flamingo. Man has driven these shy birds almost to extinction.

    Revisiting this page was a joy except the immediate return guilt about the whale! The baby donkey is just precious!

    Quite an amazing page here. I've never seen one on Bonaire or so detailed. Wonderful. The photos of the slave huts were disturbing- it's personal.

    Wow Kay! What a lovely place. Friends of ours are planning on going there for two weeks next Feburary. They will love it, especially the pink flamingos & brown pelicans. They both enjoy snorkelling too.

    You were fortunate to get so many great pictures of the flamingos--Bonaire looks like an ideal place to observe nature!
