Besides worldclass scuba diving, there are also many other fun activities that you can partake in on dushi Bonaire! To give you some tips on what else to do when you are not diving, we have listed some activities for you:


Bonaire is more known for its rocky coastline, however there are some beautiful beaches to enjoy the sun and see the marine life while snorkelling.

  • Te Amo Beach and Donkey Beach are both located near the airport. They both have multiple options for lunch because of the different food trucks located next to the beaches. Swimming and snorkelling at these beaches is very popular.
  • For an idyllic beach picture, a visit to Pink Beach is a must with it’s beautiful palm trees. A perfect place to watch the sunset on Bonaire.
  • Or visit the beaches of Klein Bonaire, the uninhabited small island, to spend the day away from the main island. These beaches can only be reached by the boat. Please keep in mind that you have to bring your own water, food and sunscreen, since there are no facilities on Klein Bonaire. Snorkelling and swimming among this beautiful island makes the trip worth!

Bonaire is the perfect island for surfing or sailing due to the consistent winds. There are several options available to you:


On the east coast of the island you will find the shallow waters of Lac Bay. This is the perfect spot for windsurfing with the steady winds from the east and easy accessible water from the beach. Rentals are available on site, if you like to give it a try!
