A new beach resort opened on Bonaire, and it is fabulous! The Ocean Oasis in Bonaire is a great way to spend the day. The Ocean Oasis has beach beds & chairs, great food and magnificent drinks.
When we visited in August, we rented a cabana – for the girls – and Steve and I stayed up in the chair section. The chairs are free to use and very comfortable. The beach bed rentals are a bit pricey – $20 a pop at the time, but they come with towels, water, and snack. The cabana rental also comes with these amenities. For our family, the cabana rental was a more affordable option for the 4 girls to share. Depending on your preference and how you want to spend your vacation dollars, you have several of choices to lounge your day away.
We arrived early in the afternoon and enjoyed a delicious meal and great drinks. The service was truly fantastic, and the food superb. Take a peak at their menu for some ideas. I had the Wahoo Risotto which was delicious, and Steve opted for the equally yummy Butter Paneer.
There are several relatively easy water entrances to enjoy swimming or snorkeling. We highly recommend water shoes, as you will be walking over the rocky shoreline.
The Lunt Family gives the Ocean Oasis a thumbs up all around. We do consider this to be a money well spent splurge day. We hope you feel them same!
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.
