5* PADI Dive Center Bonaire & Vacation Rentals
Beyond The Corals is a small but fully-equipped dive resort on Bonaire, established by Michel and Kim Kloet. Run by divers, serving divers, we love what we do: introducing people to the world of diving and showing the breathtaking underwater world of Bonaire. We offer three ground floor holiday apartment rentals and a PADI Dive Center Bonaire with all diving facilities. It’s that combination of comfortable accommodation, amazing diving, a great setting and fabulous staff that has made us one of the best resorts on Bonaire.
From newbie to Bonaire dive center
Michel was a young boy when he started diving at a local dive club, his experience as a diver started here. In 1998 he decided to become a PADI Open Water Scuba Diver Instructor. The first few years he worked for several diving schools and participated in sport education programs in the Netherlands to build more experience as an instructor. He then became a Master Scuba Diver Trainer teaching several different specialties. In 2013, he became an Instructor Development Course (IDC). Kim has been diving since 2000 and became a PADI Open Water Scuba Diver Instructor (OWSI) in 2017.
Beyond The Corals is an idyllic retreat tucked away on the stunning island of Bonaire in the Dutch Caribbean. Located in the quiet Belnem, at a few minutes walking from the ocean, paradise is truly just a few steps away. Beyond The Corals is located just a few minutes from the airport. Everything is close by: from white beaches and pink flamingos to a great national park and pristine underwater world lush with colorful fish and corals.
Bachelor’s Beach is a nice beach within easy walking distance from our Bonaire dive resort; it is great for swimming, snorkeling, and diving. Also within walking distance, there are some nice bars and restaurants and even a supermarket. The main road in front of Beyond The Corals takes you all the way around the southern part of the island, including proximity to Cargill, the international salt company, Atlantis Kite Beach and the island’s most popular beach called “Sorobon”. Bonaire’s capital Kralendijk is just 5-10 minutes driving and offers numerous supermarkets, bars, restaurants and gas stations.
