We bought water taxi tickets on the quayside. There were lots of stands and we picked one. The trip takes a while, because it goes to a drop off/pick up point at a hotel first. When we got to Klein Bonaire the shaded hut was full, so we put our things on the sand. The sand is soft, but there... More

Klein Bonaire has beautiful white sand which makes it easy to walk in and out of the ocean while still having some of the best snorkeling we have ever done. Water taxi from town takes about 20 mins only because it goes slow (it's only half a mile) and cost is $15 each round trip. The island is not inhabited... More

We love, love, love going to Klein Bonaire for the fantastic beach and snorkelling. It must me noted that there are no facilities at all there....nothing but low scrubs, white sand, coral and lots of fish. What more could someone ask for? We will return for sure.

Beware - If you go to the beach you need to realise that there are no facilities on Klein Bonaire - that's no WC's / food / water (sea apart!) / shade. The water taxis from town will take you over for around $15US per person return - note: trips on a set time schedule. If you ask they will... More

We were taken out by Buddy Dives to Klien Bonaire. The diver masters were friendly and very helpful. They answered questions and took us to two different sites. The dives were just dyamic and the colors and fish were excellent. I recommend doing this

The water taxis go here from town or the Eden Beach resort $15US per person round trip on a set time schedule. They will even drop you off at the beach with your towels etc. and then drop you off in the water to snorkel back to where you left your towel - highly recommended! If you go to the... More

The reef and fish surrounding Klein Bonaire are exceptional. We kayaked out to the island for two days and took the water taxi a third day. The drift snorkel is wonderful, and the further you walk toward the eastern point, the more of the flourishing reef you will see as you head back toward No Name. (You don't want to... More

Seclusion. Gorgeous beach and fantastic snorkelling. Pay the water taxi the extra 2 bucks to do the drift snorkel. We did and saw a large turtle who let is follow him around for 15 mins. The beach is pristine. Pack a cooler and sunscreen and enjoy the day.
