Klein Bonaire, or Little Bonaire, is the small slice of land you see as you fly into Bonaire Flamingo airport. The moment our eyes set sight on Klein Bonaire, we take a deep breath, relax and know our Bonaire vacation has begun.
Klein Bonaire is a small, flat, uninhabited island located a half mile off the coast of Bonaire. It is owned by the government of Bonaire, and is protected from development. Included in the protection of the Bonaire National Marine Park, Klein Bonaire is home to nestling turtle grounds as well. Klein Bonaire is also home to one of the only true sandy beaches of Bonaire – No Name Beach.
Known for its amazing diving and snorkeling, time spent on Klein Bonaire is a must for all Bonaire visitors. With shallow reef areas, steep drop offs and lots of healthy reef, there is a lot of underwater sea life to explore.
With no development, comes no facilities, except for a few small shade structures and trash receptacles. Bring with you what you need for the day – lots of water, some snacks, and perhaps a nice meal. The island is very peaceful, and is a wonderful way to spend a day if you are well prepared.
There are several spots on the island which you can access a taxi to get to Klein Bonaire. We like to use the taxi at Eden/Spice Beach Club. It is convenient to Villa Lunt, and is a great place to spend time as well.
